Quotes containing the word indulge


1. I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.
- Edgar Allan Poe

3. There is lust and then there is love. They are related, but still very different things.
