Individuality is founded in feeling; and the recesses of feeling, the darker, blinder strata of character, are the only places in the world in which we catch real fact in the making, and directly perceive how events happen, and how work is actually done.

By annihilating the desires, you annihilate the mind. Every man without passions has within him no principle of action, nor motive to act.
There are confessable agonies, sufferings of which one can positively be proud. Of bereavement, of parting, of the sense of sin and the fear of death the poets have eloquently spoken. They command the world's sympathy. But there are also discreditable anguishes, no less excruciating than the others, but of which the sufferer dare not, cannot speak. The anguish of thwarted desire, for example.
To educate the intelligence is to expand the horizon of its wants and desires.
The desire for success lubricates secret prostitution's in the soul.
The lover of life makes the whole world into his family, just as the lover of the fair sex creates his from all the lovely women he has found, from those that could be found, and those who are impossible to find.
When a man and a woman have an overwhelming passion for each other, it seems to me, in spite of such obstacles dividing them as parents or husband, that they belong to each other in the name of Nature, and are lovers by Divine right, in spite of human convention or the laws.
A lover without indiscretion is no lover at all. Circumspection and devotion are a contradiction in terms.
Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety. Other women cloy the appetites they feed, but she makes hungry where most she satisfies.
No one worth possessing can be quite possessed.
The one who loves least controls the relationship.
Teach only love for that is what you are.
Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.
Love's greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.
What I needed most was to love and to be loved, eager to be caught. Happily I wrapped those painful bonds around me; and sure enough, I would be lashed with the red-hot pokers or jealousy, by suspicions and fear, by burst of anger and quarrels.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
Real love stories never have endings.
If you have it [Love], you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.
I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.
Love is the immortal flow of energy that nourishes, extends and preserves. Its eternal goal is life.
Forgive me my nonsense as I also forgive the nonsense of those who think they can talk sense.
We ask God to forgive us for our evil thoughts and evil temper, but rarely, if ever ask Him to forgive us for our sadness.
One must not attempt to justify them, but rather to sense their nature simply and clearly.
Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.
Accept everything about yourself -- I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end -- no apologies, no regrets.
For the ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle (home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics) he feels himself master of his fate, but against major events he is as helpless as against the elements. So far from endeavoring to influence the future, he simply lies down and lets things happen to him.
Acceptance of others, their looks, their behaviors, their beliefs, bring you an inner peace and tranquillity -- instead of anger and resentment
No one would talk much in society if they knew how often they misunderstood others.
Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.
There is no pleasure to me without communication: there is not so much as a sprightly thought comes into my mind that it does not grieve me to have produced alone, and that I have no one to tell it to.
Communication is not only the essence of being human, but also a vital property of life.
Talk is by far the most accessible of pleasures. It costs nothing in money, it is all profit, it completes our education, founds and fosters our friendships, and can be enjoyed at any age and in almost any state of health.
Nothing is so simple that it cannot be misunderstood.
Communication is depositing a part of yourself in another person.
Ninety-nine percent of all problems in communications start with misunderstandings which develop as a result of differing viewpoints and conditioning.
What is the shortest word in the English language that contains the letters: abcdef? Answer: feedback. Don't forget that feedback is one of the essential elements of good communication.
