Luste, is lord of al: it hath overcome Lordes, Learned Men, Wise and eloquent: it hath vanquished the gretest Knights that have ben.
~ John Florio, in First Frutes
Society drives people crazy with lust and calls it advertising.
~ John Lahr
He that but looketh on a plate of ham and eggs to lust after it hath already committed breakfast with it in his heart.
~ C.S. Lewis
Lust is an enemy to the purse, a foe to the person, a canker to the mind, a corrosive to the conscience, a weakness of the wit, a besotter of the senses, and, finally, a mortal bane to all the body.
~ Pliny the Elder
Eyes blinded by the fog of Things cannot see Truth. Ears deafened by the din of Things cannot hear Truth. Brains bewildered by the whirl of Things cannot think Truth. Hearts deadened by the weight of Things cannot feel Truth. Throats choked by the dust of Things cannot speak Truth.
~ Harold Bell Wright, in The Uncrowned King
