Quote of the Day
Wolves and women are relational by nature, inquiring, possessed of great endurance and strength. They are deeply intuitive, intensely concerned with their young, their mate and their pack. Yet both have been hounded, harassed and falsely imputed to be devouring and devious, overly aggressive, of less value than those who are their detractors.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Do whatever you do intensely.
Blake said that the body was the soul's prison unless the five senses are fully developed and open. He considered the senses the 'windows of the soul.' When sex involves all the senses intensely, it can be like a mystical experence.

A man, to be greatly good, must imagine intensely and comprehensively; he must put himself in the place of another and of many others; the pains and pleasures of his species must become his own.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends.
Nothing fixes a thing so intensely in the memory as the wish to forget it.
Michel de Montaigne
Choose your corner, pick away at it carefully, intensely and to the best of your ability and that way you might change the world.
Blue thou art, intensely blue; Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
The suspense of a novel is not only in the reader, but in the novelist, who is intensely curious about what will happen to the hero.
The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.
Existence is no more than the precarious attainment of relevance in an intensely mobile flux of past, present, and future.
Uncontrolled, the hunger and thirst after God may become an obstacle, cutting off the soul from what it desires. If a man would travel far along the mystic road, he must learn to desire God intensely but in stillness, passively and yet with all his heart and mind and strength.
Men make love more intensely at 20, but make love better, however, at 30.
Catherine the Great
There are many types of participation. One can observe so intensely that one becomes part of the action, but without being an active participant.

My experience, with both my parents, is that grief has a lot of down, sad things, but I was also really emotionally raw, in the first year after each of them passed. Flowers smelled more intensely, my relationships were hotter, and I was more willing to risk. I was going for it a lot more. I was 'unsober' and I wasn't playing by my rules.

Joseph B. Wirthlin
I play a complicated position in an intensely team-oriented game.
Robert Pattinson has the face of a film-noir dupe. It's a face that is searching and open and kind. It's a face that a certain type of woman might want to fool because, in its intensely old-fashioned kindness, the face says, I love you. Fool me.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
