In the process of self-realisation, automatically evil desires are consumed and destroyed.

Rig-Veda (2.30.5)

Desire is called sinful, since in its grosser expressions, it makes us live & work satisfying our lower nature. It thus results in our living the life of a lower level of evolution.

Swami Chinmayananda

The Ordinary life of men is like that of saints. They all seek satisfaction and differ only in the object in which they place it; they call those their enemies who hinder them.


It is impossible to abolish either with a law or an axe the desires of men.

Walter Lippman

There are two tragedies in life. one is to lose your hearts desire. The other is to gain it.

George Bernard Shaw

No on can have all he wants, but a man can refrain from wanting what he is not, and cheerfully make the best of a bird in the hand.
