Edna St. Vincent Millay
“My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!”
Edna St. Vincent Millay, A Few Figs from Thistles

J.C. Ryle
“A zealous man in religion is pre-eminently a man of one thing. It is not enough to say that he is earnest, hearty, uncompromising, thorough-going, whole-hearted, fervent in spirit. He sees one thing, he cares for one thing, he lives for one thing, he is swallowed-up in one thing — and that one thing is to please God. Whether he lives — or whether he dies; whether he has health — or whether he has sickness; whether he is rich — or whether he is poor; whether he pleases man — or whether he gives offence; whether he is thought wise — or whether he is thought foolish; whether he gets blame — or whether he gets praise; whether he gets honor, or whether he gets shame — for all this the zealous man cares nothing at all. He burns for one thing — and that one thing is to please God, and to advance God's glory. If he is consumed in the very burning — he is content. He feels that, like a lamp, he is made to burn, and if consumed in burning — he has but done the work for which God appointed him. Such a one will always find a sphere for his zeal. If he cannot preach, and work, and give money — he will cry, and sigh, and pray. Yes, if he is only a pauper, on a perpetual bed of sickness — he will make the wheels of sin around him drive heavily, by continually interceding against it. If he cannot fight in the valley with Joshua — then he will do the prayer-work of Moses, Aaron, and Hur, on the hill. (Exod. 17:9-13.) If he is cut off from working himself — he will give the Lord no rest until help is raised up from another quarter, and the work is done. This is what I mean when I speak of "zeal" in religion.”
J.C. Ryle

“Passion is wholehearted devotion; it is fervor and agony; it is temper and zeal.”
Rebecca Ross, The Queen’s Rising

Jerry Bridges
“As we grow in holiness, we grow in hatred of sin; and God, being infinitely holy, has an infinite hatred of sin.”
Jerry Bridges, The Pursuit of Holiness

“When you are fired because of laziness, dare to fire back with the spirit of enthusiasm. Rise up at the same time and at the same place that you have fallen. You can’t give up!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Warren Bennis
“Neoteny is more than retaining a youthful appearance, although that is often part of it. Neoteny is the retention of all those wonderful qualities that we associate with youth: curiosity, playfulness, eagerness, fearlessness, warmth, energy. Unlike those defeated by time and age, our geezers have remained much like our geeks – open, willing to take risks, hungry for knowledge and experience, courageous, eager to see what the new day brings. Time and lost steal the zest from the unlucky, and leave them looking longingly at the past. Neoteny is a metaphor for the quality – and the gift – that keeps the fortunate of whatever age focused on all marvelous undiscovered things to come.”
Warren G. Bennis, Geeks and Geezers

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“The fortifications have never been attacked, nor has any sane man ever proposed any reason why they should be attacked. They have never defended anything. Fourteen hundred persons are said to have died while building them. Of these fourteen hundred, about half are said to have been executed in public for substandard zeal.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

“I would rather drown in the depths of Love than splash around on the shore of complacency.”

Temi O’Sola

“The first inclination of this generation is to talk, talk, talk-about anything and everything, at anytime and in any way. But the problem is, talk is a sham when it is from a person who knows not much and to whom talk is a pass-time. Know, stay silent, dream big, dare, take risks, talk, think, love...that's the definition of my zeal. And that's the definition of greatness”
Asuni LadyZeal

Giannis Delimitsos
“When we get a new idea — or remember an old one – and we cling to it and try to spread it with evangelical zeal, then we no longer have control over it. In fact, it's the idea itself that possesses us and becomes our new master. And we end up blindly serving the idea and forgetting the cause that brought it to us in the first place.”
Giannis Delimitsos

“To succeed in the new year, you have to set your priority right, pursue your goals with zeal and do away with procrastination.”
Bamigboye Olurotimi

Aisha Tyler
“But if you really want something, you don’t punch it in the face. You stick with it until you stop wanting to hit it and start wanting to hug it, and then kiss it, and finally make sweet, sweet love to it that will leave you both in a shivering puddle of tears.

Until then, it’s absolutely fine to fake it ‘till you make it. Jump in with both feet. “Act as if.” Just remember you’ve got to actually put in the hours, and do the real, hard work of “becoming as if.”
Aisha Tyler, Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation

Soroosh Shahrivar
“Pangea split so now we're filled in a fit of pique.
We brim with lust, spirit willing, but the flesh is weak.
Consumed by greed, shoving everything down our throat.
Sloth a cottonseed, weaving us, we are a coat.
Zeal reveals our hearts conceal a deep and endless pit.
Grudge we hold against the world, she owes us every bit.
Iblis sees humanity's impending aftermath.
So now my friend, a gift he gives, its ink is wrath.”
Soroosh Shahrivar, Letter 19

“Where zeal abounds, maturity should abound much more.”
Ayoola Ekunboyejo

Well, those kids are already DEFEATED. ...consciously or unconsciously. And they have accepted the defeat consciously or unconsciously.

AND start WORKING on "getting" them ZEAL.”
