Quotes about ardent

1. Falling in love is very real, but I used to shake my head when people talked about soul mates, poor deluded individuals grasping at some supernatural ideal not intended for mortals but sounded pretty in a poetry book. Then, we met, and everything changed, the cynic has become the converted, the sceptic, an ardent zealot.
- E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

2. If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!
- Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

- Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Carmilla
