In life, the worst disasters come from passion.


Although our love is waning, let us stand
By the lone border of the lake once more,
Together in that hour of gentleness
When the poor tired child, Passion, falls asleep:
How far away the stars seem, and how far
Is our first kiss, and ah, how old my heart!
W. B. YEATS, Ephemera

One by one they were all becoming shades. Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.

JAMES JOYCE, "The Dead," Dubliners

When passion is dead, or absent, then the magnificent throb of beauty is incomprehensible and even a little despicable.

D. H. LAWRENCE, Lady Chatterley's Lover
