Intensity Quotations

Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
Thomas Merton

The basic problem with my love relationships with women is that my standards are so high - and they apply equally to both of us. I seek full-blast mutual intensity, fully fledged mutual acceptance, full-blown mutual flourishing, and fully felt peace and joy with each other. This requires a level of physical attraction, personal adoration, and moral admiration that is hard to find.
Cornel West

The best training program in the world is absolutely worthless without the will to execute it properly, consistently, and with intensity.

If a leader doesn't convey passion and intensity then there will be no passion and intensity within the organization and they'll start to fall down and get depressed.
Colin Powell
