There has never been a perfect government, because men have passions and if they did not have passions, there would be no need for government.
Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire
Doubtless criticism was originally benignant, pointing out the beauties of a work rather that its defects. The passions of men have made it malignant, as a bad heart of Procrustes turned the bed, the symbol of repose, into an instrument of torture.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Some people think only intellect counts: knowing how to solve problems, knowing how to get by, knowing how to identify an advantage and seize it. But the functions of intellect are insufficient without courage, love, friendship, compassion and empathy.

We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.
John Adams
All the passions make us commit faults love makes us commit the most ridiculous ones.
La Rochefoucauld
If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of potential - - For the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints; possibility never.
S? ren Kierkegaard

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
The Dalai Lama
In endowing us with memory, nature has revealed to us a truth utterly unimaginable to the unreflective creation, the truth of immortality.... The most ideal human passion is love, which is also the most absolute and animal and one of the most ephemeral.
George Santayana
Who is wise He that learns from everyone. Who is powerful He that governs his passions. Who is rich He who is content. Who is that Nobody.
Benjamin Franklin
The holy passion of Friendship is so sweet and steady and loyal and enduring a nature that it will last through a whole lifetime, if not asked to lend money.
Mark Twain
The human animal differs from the lesser primates in his passion for lists of Ten Best.
H. Allen Smith

What a mistake to suppose that the passions are strongest in youth The passions are not stronger, but the control over them is weaker They are more easily excited, they are more violent and apparent but they have less energy, less durability, less intense and concentrated power than in the maturer life.
Edward Bulwer - Lytton
What a mistake to suppose that the passions are strongest in youth! The passions are not stronger, but the control over them is weaker! They are more easily excited, they are more violent and apparent; but they have less energy, less durability, less intense and concentrated power than in the maturer life.
Edward Bulwer - Lytton
When men exercise their reason coolly and freely on a variety of distinct questions, they inevitably fall into different opinions on some of them. When they are governed by a common passion, their opinions, if they are to be called, will be the same.
Alexander Hamilton
We are not enemies but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic cords of memory shall swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of nature.
Abraham Lincoln
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
I cannot believe that the purpose of life is merely to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate. I think it is above all to matter, to count, to stand for something. To have it make some difference that you lived at all.
Leo Rosten
Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.
