lust Quotes

Seven of the best book quotes about lust
  1. #1
    “Lust and dull slumber and the lazy hours
    Have well nigh banished virtue from mankind.
    Hence have man’s nature and his treacherous mind
    Left their free course, enmeshed in sin’s soft bowers.
    The very light of heaven hath lost its powers
    Mid fading ways our loftiest dreams to find;
    Men jeer at him whose footsteps are inclined
    Where Helicon from dewy fountains showers.
    Who seeks the laurel? who the myrtle twines?
    ‘Wisdom, thou goest a beggar and unclad,’
    So scoffs the crowd, intent on worthless gain.
    Few are the hearts that prize the poet’s lines:
    Yet, friend, the more I hail thy spirit glad!
    Let not the glory of thy purpose wane!”

    Are threefold, whereby men to ruin pass,--

    Of Avarice. Let a man shun those three!”
  7. #7
