Man wants but little here below, Nor wants that little long.
Lord grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.
Burning desire to be or do something gives us staying power – a reason to get up every morning or to pick ourselves up and start in again after a disappointment.
A strong passion for any object will ensure success, for the desire of the end will point out the means.
Desire and hope will push us on toward the future.
I’m a simple man. All I want is enough sleep for two normal men, enough whiskey for three, and enough women for four.
By annihilting desires you annihilate the mind. Every man without passions has within him no principle of action, nor motive to act.
We live in our desires rather than in our achievements.
Whatever you want too much, you can’t have, so when you really want something, try to want it a little less.
When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.
