  3. Simone de Beauvoir:

    The curse which lies upon marriage is that too often the individuals are joined in their weakness rather than in their strength --each asking from the other instead of finding pleasure in giving. It is even more deceptive to dream of gaining through the child a plenitude, a warmth, a value, which one is unable to create for oneself; the child brings joy only to the woman who is capable of disinterestedly desiring the happiness of another, to one who without being wrapped up in self seeks to transcend her own existence.

  4. George Bernard Shaw:

    Virtue consists, not in abstaining from vice, but in not desiring it.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Merely desiring something is not advisable and encouraging. Yes! you've got to be longing for it (desire it strongly) as well, do quest for it unyieldingly or tirelessly, so that you can be able to surmount any challenge that might show up in the course of pursuing or realizing it. ~Emeasoba George
