13 Most Passionate Quotes

13 Most Passionate Quotes:

I wanted to do somemore quotes this week and when I came across the first one by John Keats, I melted. I'm usually in a sarcastic mood, that's who I am... But for today's Thursday Thirteen I decided to be passionate and emotional. Enjoy!

1. "I cannot exist without you. I am forgetful of everything but seeing you again. My life seems to stop there, I see no further. You have absorb'd me. I have a sensation at the present moment as though I were dissolving. I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for religion... I have shudder'd at it... I shudder no more. I could be martyr'd for my religion: Love is my religion. I could die for that. I could die for you. My creed is love, and you are its only tenet. You have ravish'd me away by a power I cannot resist." ~letter written by John Keats

2. "We are each of us angels with only one wing. And we can only fly while embracing each other." ~Lucian de Croszonza

3. "Your words are my food, your breath my wine. You are everything to me." ~Sarah Bernhardt

4. "All that you are, all that I owe to you, justifies my love." ~Marquis de Lafayette

5. "Thou art to me a delicious torment." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

6. "O happy hours when I may once more encircle within these arms the dearest object of my love - when I shall again feel the pressure of that 'aching head' which will delight to recline upon my bosom, when I may again press to my heart which palpitates with the purest affection that loved one who has so long shared its undivided devotion." ~Alexander Hamilton Rice

7. "My love for you is a journey; Starting at forever, And ending at never." ~Unknown

8. "You're nothing short of my everything." ~Ralph Block

9. "Love me without fear / Trust me without questioning / Need me without demanding / Want me without restrictions / Accept me without change / Desire me without inhibitions." ~Dick Sutphen

10. "There's this place in me where your fingerprints still rest, your kisses still linger, and your whispers softly echo. It's the place where a part of you will forever be a part of me." ~Gretchen Kemp

11. "He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know where he ended and she began." ~Leo Tolstoy

12. "How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said." ~Victor Hugo

13. "I can no longer think of anything but you. In spite of myself, my imagination carries me to you. I grasp you, I kiss you, I caress you, a thousand of the most amorous caresses take possession of me." ~Honore de Balzac, letter to Evelina Hanska, June 1836
