Alluring Quotes

Hey guys! I’m back! Take a look at my latest post.

Everyone has favorite quotes. They are the ones that allure us the most and mean something to us. They are like our own personal inspiration. So I have listed  some of the ones that captivated me.

1. “Hell is empty
     And all the devils are here.”

2. “Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind.
      And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”

3. “Abashed the Devil stood,
And felt how awful goodness is, and saw
Virtue in her shape how lovely.
—saw, and pined his loss.”

– John Milton, Paradise Lost

4. “Yet each man kills the thing he loves
      By each let this be heard,
      Some do it with a bitter look,
      Some with a flattering word,
      The coward does it with a kiss,
      The brave man with a sword!”
– Oscar Wilde, The Ballad of Reading Gaol

13. “That to love is to destroy and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed.”

Actually, this list is currently infinite. And so, I’ve mentally forced myself to stop at 13. Let me know your views about this post and maybe I’ll do some more. Thanks for reading!
