Quote of the Day, 12/01/06: Passion

Late entry for quote of the day today. I found this first one on passion, it seemed a decent enough theme.



Ty King (from "Passion" episode of Buffy)
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... 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.

Federico Fellini
There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the passion of life.

D. H. Lawrence
Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot.

Dear Quote Maven, Can you steer me to a source for some good non relgious Christmas quotes? I need one for my card that I make every year and the ones I have in my stash aren't quite right. Thanks.

Michele, fixed. It was late, I was sleepy....

Blogger still won't let me edit my messages in anything other than HTML view, and I can't load pictures!

Runart, will check around for you.

The episode PASSION was written by Ty King, actually. :)

See now, that's the danger with these quote sources on the internet. I have to trust them, but I know sometimes they're wrong.

I assume then that the quote above is from a Buffy or Angel episode? Hmmmm. Should I change the credit?

Michele said...

Yes, it's from the Buffy season 2 episode called "Passion" (sensibly enough) and the lines were spoken by Angel. In fairness, you should change the credit to reflect that fact...

All fixed. Many thanks for the info.
