Desire?

Is desire greater than a want or less than a need? The reason I asked is because of this.

“Stranger than you dreamt it, can you even bear to look, or dare to think of me?… This lonesome gargoyle who burns in hell but secretly YEARNS for heaven secretly, secretly but Christine… fear can turn to love you’ll learn to see to find the man behind the monster this… repulsive carcass that seems a beast but secretly dreams of beauty secretly, secretly…”
from the movie The Phantom of The Opera

Those were the words of the Phantom to Christine Daae, and after them, he cried.

There was a desire to be with the person he loved; he compared it to heaven. But he did not get that love. Why? She did not love him; there was no yearning to be with him.

When you love someone, do you want to be around that person, or do you need to be around that person? Can it lead to an obsession?

for the month of february, PLEASE GIVE A DIME. Or ten cents, or an equivalent. For each day, set this amount aside for the whole month, 28 days, and at the end of the month, donate it to a children’s charity. A small big difference. Pass the word along if you please. :)

  1. Desire or passion is stronger than love, because love seeks the happiness of the other, and desire/passion seeks happiness of self.

  2. you must be relishing your weekend 🙂
    wish you loads of fun.

  3. When people get in love sometimes the power of the emotions can take over and you lose all logical sense

  4. Love and not thinking logically, hmm. It should take more than the mind, the heart should be included as well. 🙂
