PASSION INSIDE A COTTAGE ON A BIRTHDAY

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate the fine passions of the Elders.

What the public wants is the image of passion, not passion itself.

(Roland Barthes (1915-1980), French semiologist. Mythologies, “Le monde où l’on catche,” (1957).

The heart that can No longer love passionately, Must with fury hate

JEAN RACINE

One sole desire, one passion now remains To keep life’s fever still within his veins, Vengeance! dire vengeance on the wretch who cast O’er him and all he lov’d that ruinous blast.
Thomas Moore

Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.
Denis Diderot

Mortal lovers must not try to remain at the first step; for lasting passion is the dream of a harlot and from it we wake in despair.
C S Lewis

Patience and time do more than strength or passion.
– Jean de La Fontaine

Passion is the quickest to develop, and the quickest to fade. Intimacy develops more slowly, and commitment more gradually still. Robert Sternberg
