Quotes: Passion Alone

“All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart.” ― Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

“When you set yourself on fire, people love to come and see you burn.” – John Wesley, Christian Theologian

“sex is the consolation you have when you can’t have love” ― Gabriel García Márquez

“I feel too much. That’s what’s going on. Do you think one can feel too much? Or just feel in the wrong ways? My insides don’t match up with my outsides.” ― Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

“Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love… The clarity of hatred… and 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.” – Joss Whedon, Screenwriter and Director
