Quote for Passion
“Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping… waiting… and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir… open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us… guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love… the clarity of hatred… the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we’d know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we’d be truly dead.”
The first few words of this quote “Passion. It lies in all of us.” but not only with humans but in the animal kingdom as well. That is why I added the photo above, the mother lion action tells it all.
I can’t really say much more as the quote covers “Passion” extremely well.
Quote for Passion Tanka
Some passions are dangerous
Never let that one
Control your body and soul
For you will be truly dead.
