Famous quotes containing the words compulsive and/or obsessive:
“Like to the Pontic Sea,
Whose icy current and compulsive course
Neer knows retiring ebb, but keeps due on
To the Propontic and the Hellespont,
Even so my bloody thoughts with violent pace
Shall neer look back, neer ebb to humble love,
Till that a capable and wide revenge
Swallow them up.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Who among us has not, in moments of ambition, dreamt of the miracle of a form of poetic prose, musical but without rhythm and rhyme, both supple and staccato enough to adapt itself to the lyrical movements of our souls, the undulating movements of our reveries, and the convulsive movements of our consciences? This obsessive ideal springs above all from frequent contact with enormous cities, from the junction of their innumerable connections.”
—Charles Baudelaire (18211867)
