You can satisfy one thousand desires or conquer just one.

The power of unfulfilled desires is the root of all of man’s slavery.

The secret to great sex

“To understand excitement, we have to go back to the early days, when we were deeply in the mood (for sex) pretty much every hour. What was exciting was our ability to touch, hold, stroke – in short, possess someone who wasn’t entirely within our reach: someone who was independent and free to walk away from us – and yet miraculously was choosing not to do so.

Sexiness = Possession + Freedom.”
