The Link Between Ideas And Action Is Rarely Direct. There Is Almost Always An Intermediate Step In Which The Idea Is Overcome. De Tocqueville Points Out That It Is At Times When Passions Start To Govern Human Affairs That Ideas Are Most Obviously Translated Into Political Action. The Translation Of Ideas Into Action Is Usually In The Hands Of People Least Likely To Follow Rational Motives. Hence, It Is That Action Is Often The Nemesis Of Ideas, And Sometimes Of The Men Who Formulate Them. One Of The Marks Of The Truly Vigorous Society Is The Ability To Dispense With Passion As A Midwife Of Action - The Ability To Pass Directly From Thought To Action.
~ Eric Hoffe
The Holy Passion Of Friendship Is So Sweet And Steady And Loyal And Enduring A Nature That It Will Last Through A Whole Lifetime, If Not Asked To Lend Money.

He Fell In Love With Himself At First Sight, And It Is A Passion To Which He Has Always Remained Faithful. Self-love Seems So Often Unrequited.
