Today’s Quotes come from The Name of the Rose, a book I can quote from day after day and still not be done with it. These are just a few of the books many quotable lines.
* What is love? There is nothing in the world, neither man nor Devil nor any thing, that I hold as suspect as love, for it penetrates the soul more than any other thing. Nothing exists that so fills and binds the heart as love does. Therefore, unless you have those weapons that subdue it, the soul plunges through love into an immense abyss.
* After so many years even the fire of passion dies, and with it what was believed the light of the truth. Who of us is able to say now whether Hector or Achilles was right, Agamemnon or Priam, when they fought over the beauty of a woman who is now dust and ashes?
* Because learning does not consist only of knowing what we must or we can do, but also of knowing what we could do and perhaps should not do.
~ Umberto Eco from The Name of the Rose
Some fantastic quotes for sure! I really love the last one…. it’s a lesson I live my days by.
Thanks! I try to live by the last one too especially the part about what we ‘perhaps should not do’. 🙂
“in the absence of that which your are not, that which your are, is not” – Neal Donald Walsch
not necessarily my favorite quote – but one I find baffling – can anyone provide some illumination
Don’t look at me! I can barely make sense of what is going on around me let alone understand something so highbrow! 😉
