Favorite Forbidden Desire Quotes

1. "Bobos are uncomfortable with universal moral laws that purport to regulate pleasure. Bobos prefer more prosaic self-controlled regimes. The things that are forbidden are unhealthy or unsafe. The things that are encouraged are enriching or calorie burning. In other words, we regulate our carnal desires with health codes instead of moral codes."
Author: David Brooks
2. "We always long for the forbidden things, and desire what is denied us."
Author: Francois Rabelais
3. "True evangelical faith is of such a nature it cannot lie dormant, but spreads itself out in all kinds of righteousness and fruits of love;?it dies to flesh and blood;?it destroys all lusts and forbidden desires;?it seeks, serves and fears God in its inmost soul (3);?it clothes the naked;?it feeds the hungry;?it comforts the sorrowful; ?it shelters the destitute;?it aids and consoles the sad;?it does good to those who do it harm;?it serves those that harm it;?it prays for those who persecute it;?it teaches, admonishes and judges us with the Word of the Lord;?it seeks those who are lost;?it binds up what is wounded;?it heals the sick;?it saves what is strong (sound);?it becomes all things to all people.?The persecution, suffering and anguish that come to it for the sake of the Lord's truth have become a glorious joy and comfort to it."
Author: Menno Simons
4. "[I]t was with a good end in mind – that of acquiring the knowledge of good and evil – that Eve allowed herself to be carried away and eat the forbidden fruit. But Adam was not moved by this desire for knowledge, but simply by greed: he ate it because he heard Eve say it tasted good."
Author: Moderata Fonte
5. "We are punished for our refusals. Every impulse that we strive to strangle broods in the mind and poisons us. The body sins once, and has done with its sin, for action is a mode of purification. Nothing remains then but the recollection of a pleasure, or the luxury of a regret. The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself, with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful. It has been said that the great events of the world take place in the brain. It is in the brain, and the brain only, that the great sins of the world take place also."
Author: Oscar Wilde

7. "I'm not concerned with paid assassins ... mindless, soulless animals who excel at nothing else. But you, Erik ... you love all the beauty in this world ... you are a genius in so many different fields. Why do you set yourself beyond the pale of humanity by such a despicable crime?"He took off the mask and turned slowly to let me see. "This face which has denied me all human rights also frees me of all obligation to the human race," he said quietly. "My mother hated me, my village drove me from my home, I was exhibited like an animal in a cage until a knife showed me the only way to be free. The pleasures of love will always be forbidden to me ... but I am young, Nadir. I have all the desires of any normal man."

8. "There were profound reasons for his attachment to the sea: he loved it because as a hardworking artist he needed rest, needed to escape from the demanding complexity of phenomena and lie hidden on the bosom of the simple and tremendous; because of a forbidden longing deep within him that ran quite contrary to his life's task and was for that very reason seductive, a longing for the unarticulated and immeasurable, for eternity, for nothingness. To rest in the arms of perfection is the desire of any man intent upon creating excellence; and is not nothingness a form of perfection?"
Author: Thomas Mann
