|Govern your passions or otherwise they will govern you.
– Horace (65 BC-8 BC)
|Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.
– Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)
|To be happy, the passions must be cheerful and gay, not gloomy and melancholy. A propensity to hope and joy is real riches; one to fear and sorrow, real poverty.
– David Hume (1711-1776)
|A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.
– Carl Jung (1875-1961)
