Intense Quotations

The game of basketball has been everything to me. My place of refuge, place I've always gone where I needed comfort and peace. It's been the site of intense pain and the most intense feelings of joy and satisfaction. It's a relationship that has evolved over time, given me the greatest respect and love for the game.
Michael Jordan

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
Mother Teresa

Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.

Erich Fromm
