Quotes About Leading With Passion

"Mr. Elliot is a man without heart or conscience; a designing, wary, cold-blooded being, who thinks only of himself; who, for his own interest or ease, would be guilty of any cruelty, or any treachery, that could be perpetrated without risk of his general character. He has no feeling for others. Those whom he has been the chief cause of leading into ruin, he can neglect and desert without the slightest compunction. He is totally beyond the reach of any sentiment of justice or compassion. Oh! he is black at heart, hollow and black!" - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Being So In Love

"But what I did was the kind of thing youd do and the kind of thing youve done: I felt bad for him and for myself and I went on with my week and then my summer and I started telling my story to whoever would listen.

Love me for being in the lifeboat after everyone else went under. And my story made me feel better and it made me feel worse. And it worked." - Author: Jim Shepard

Quotes About Empty Apologies

"Spring TO what purpose, April, do you return again? Beauty is not enough. You can no longer quiet me with the redness Of little leaves opening stickily. I know what I know. The sun is hot on my neck as I observe The spikes of the crocus. The smell of the earth is good. It is apparent that there is no death. But what does that signify? Not only under ground are the brains of men Eaten by maggots. Life in itself Is nothing, An empty cup, a flight of uncarpeted stairs. It is not enough that yearly, down this hill, April Comes like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers." - Author: Edna St. Vincent Millay

Quotes About Long Lost Love Reuniting

"I will not deny that my heart has long occupied itself with the most tender feelings for another. So strong were these impulses that I indulged myself by thinking that if I could not have him whom I admired whom I will admit it now when I would not before I loved then I would never want another. However those are sentiments best saved for one of Lilys romances. The heart is a far more practical thing and in its life is happily capable of more than a single attachment." - Author: Galen Beckett
