Forever seeking, never found, In this wide varied scene; Sole object of unceasing search, While in this low terrene. Yet vain the search, if in the heart Some lurking Passion dwell; For this will hang with cypress wreath Retirement's secret cell. In vain the outward scene is calm, In vain the world we fly; If thou, in pure religion's garb, Thy friendly aid deny.elizabeth bath
The pleasures of love are for those who are hopelessly addicted to another living creature. The reasons for such addiction are so many that I suspect they are never the same in any two cases. It includes Passion but does not survive by Passion; it has its whiffs of the agreeable vertigo of young love, but it is stable more often than dizzy; it is a growing, changing thing, and it is tactful enough to give the addicted parties occasional rests from strong and exhausting feeling of any kind.Robertson Davies
There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite Passion of life.Federico Fellini

Take a book, the poorest one written, but read it with the Passion that it is the only book you will read-ultimately you will read everything out of it, that is, as much as there was in yourself, and you could never get more out of reading, even if you read the best of books.
The only trouble is that there's absolutely no Passion, no soul and no excitement to be found here...Yet all good music should provoke some sort of emotion, and this [Nine Million Bicycles] provokes none whatsoever.katie melua
Strength of mind rests in sobriety; for this keeps your reason unclouded by Passion.pythagoras
For Passion, be it observed, brings insight with it; it can give a sort of intelligence to simpletons, fools, and idiots, especially during youth.
He will hold thee, when his Passion shall have spent its novel force, Something better than his dog, a little dearer than his horse.
I believe that curiosity, wonder and Passion are defining qualities of imaginative minds and great teachers ; that restlessness and discontent are vital things; and that intense experience and suffering instruct us in ways that less intense emotions can never do.
