The shadows of our own desires stand between us and our better angels, and thus their brightness is eclipsed.
- Charles Dickens

The passions and desires, like the two twists of a rope, mutually mix one with the other, and twin inextricably round the heart; producing good if moderately indulged; but certain destruction if suffered to become inordinate.
- Robert Burton

Those who restrain desire, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained.
- William Blake

First off, I love the poetic term "wax" or "waxing" and I am absolutely delighted to have found my way to your delightful blog. What a pleasure to find another ardent writer!
