what s missing
What’s Missing
  • With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion. –
  • Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age. –
  • Man is only great when he acts from passion. –
  • It is obvious that we can no more explain passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind. –
  • With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion. – E. A. Poe
  • Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age. – James Joyce
  • Man is only great when he acts from passion. – Benjamin Disraeli
  • It is obvious that we can no more explain passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind. – T. S. Eliot
