appetite

In our own time we have seen domination spread over the social landscape to a point where it is beyond all human control. Compared to this stupendous mobilization of materials, of wealth, of human intellect, of human labor for the single goal of domination, all other recent human achievements pale to almost trivial significance. Our art, science, medicine, literature, music and charitable acts seem like mere droppings from a table on which gory feasts on the spoils of conquest have engaged the attention of a system whose appetite for rule is utterly unrestrained.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men are to be guided only by their self-interests. Good government is a good balancing of these; and, except a keen eye and appetite for self-interest, requires no virtue in any quarter. To both parties it is emphatically a machine: to the discontented, a taxing-machine; to the contented, a machine for securing property. Its duties and its faults are not those of a father, but of an active parish-constable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

No human beings more dangerous than those who have suffered for a belief: the great persecutors are recruited from the martyrs not quite beheaded. Far from diminishing the appetite for power, suffering exasperates it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Sinful and forbidden pleasures are like poisoned bread; they may satisfy appetite for the moment, but there is death in them at the end.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Ambition has its disappointments to sour us, but never the good fortune to satisfy us. Its appetite grows keener by indulgence and all we can gratify it with at present serves but the more to inflame its insatiable desires.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you purify your soul of attachment to and desire for things, you will understand them spiritually. If you deny your appetite for them, you will enjoy their truth, understanding what is certain in them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Hunger is never delicate; they who are seldom gorged to the full with praise may be safely fed with gross compliments, for the appetite must be satisfied before it is disgusted.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
America, which has the most glorious present still existing in the world today, hardly stops to enjoy it, in her insatiable appetite for the future.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Of course we women gossip on occasion. But our appetite for it is not as avid as a man s. It is in the boys gyms, the college fraternity houses, the club locker rooms, the paneled offices of business that gossip reaches its luxuriant flower.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Digressions, incontestably, are the sunshine; they are the life, the soul of reading! Take them out of this book, for instance, --you might as well take the book along with them; --one cold external winter would reign in every page of it; restore them to the writer; --he steps forth like a bridegroom, --bids All-hail; brings in variety, and forbids the appetite to fail.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The appetite for power, even for universal power, is only insane when there is no possibility of indulging it; a man who sees the possibility opening before him and does not try to grasp it, even at the risk of destroying himself and his country, is eitherMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland: [singing] Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite / Looking forward to a little afternoon delight / Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite / And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting.

Withnail: Eat it? Fucker's alive.
Peter Marwood: Yeah, you've got to kill it.
Withnail: Me? I'm the firelighter and fuel collector.
Peter Marwood: Yeah, I know, but I got the logs in. It takes away your appetite just looking at it.

Once you've reached the point where you can pay rent, you can go to the vet and you can go to the grocery store, after that point it's all the same. I don't have the appetite for a decadent lifestyle.More [09/17/2006 12:09:00]
“There was this insatiable appetite for anything on me. I’ll never forget the feeling of waking up in the morning and my stomach would be churning, and the phone would ring and someone would tell me I was on the front page of something. It got to the point where I was miserable.”More [12/08/2006 12:12:00]
Nash: [to Thomas King] I still see things that are not here. I just choose not to acknowledge them. Like a diet of the mind, I just choose not to indulge certain appetites; like my appetite for patterns; perhaps my appetite to imagine and to dream.More [04/28/2007 12:04:00]
John Milton: You sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with its desire; you build egos the size of cathedrals; fiber-optically connect the world to every eager impulse; grease even the dullest dreams with these dollar-green, gold-plated fantasies, until every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own God... and where can you go from there?More [08/27/2007 12:08:00]

Nathan: Alice, please. Your dog, Alice. It and my appetite are mutually exclusive.
Alice: Well, what's wrong with the dog?
Nathan: Simple. He's been licking his asshole for the last three straight hours. I submit to you that there is nothing there worth more than an hour's attention. I should think that whatever he is attempting to dislodge is either gone for good, or there to stay. Wouldn't you agree?More [08/10/2008 12:08:00]

Susan Bonnard:
[Bibi returns to the dining room, adjusting lacy garters on his sleeves] Bibi, what have you got on your sleeves?



Robert 'Bibi' Bonnard:
They're too long. Before he left town, Uncle Desmond gave me some garters to hold them up.



Susan Bonnard:
Women's garters! Take them off! Look at them! Off some... stranger's legs!



Grandpere Bonnard:
To Desmond she was not a stranger.



Susan Bonnard:
Jacques!



Jacques Bonnard:
Calm yourself, my love. My brother is young.



Susan Bonnard:
Your son is younger.



Jacques Bonnard:
And after all, there is no great harm in catching garters that are thrown from the stage of the Casino Burlesque. It's done by some of our most distinguished citizens. It's a form of sport.



Susan Bonnard:
I don't want garters from the burlesque on my son's arms.



Robert 'Bibi' Bonnard:
Only one is from the burlesque! The other was obtained privately!



Susan Bonnard:
[shrieking, she leaves the room]



Jacques Bonnard:
Now, Bibi-in the world of men, one does not talk too much. It's enough to have the garters; one does not volunteer the information where they were obtained. You will understand when you are a man.



Robert 'Bibi' Bonnard:
Papa? When will I be?



Jacques Bonnard:
What?



Robert 'Bibi' Bonnard:
When will I be a man?



Jacques Bonnard:
Soon enough.



Grandpere Bonnard:
There is a law of nature, called la puberté, and it is widespread among all animals, being the awakening of a natural appetite. Life will taste better then-like a good soup! It is the seasoning that counts! But it is a hard appetite to satisfy, believe me.

Narrator:
[opening narration] Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to violence, the word and the act. While violence cloaks itself in a plethora of disguises, its favorite mantle still remains... sex. Violence devours all it touches, its voracious appetite rarely fulfilled. Yet violence doesn't only destroy, it creates and molds as well. Let's examine closely then this dangerously evil creation, this new breed encased and contained within the supple skin of woman. The softness is there, the unmistakable smell of female, the surface shiny and silken, the body yielding yet wanton. But a word of caution: handle with care and don't drop your guard. This rapacious new breed prowls both alone and in packs, operating at any level, any time, anywhere, and with anybody. Who are they? One might be your secretary, your doctor's receptionist... or a dancer in a go-go club!
