„Nothing great in the world was accomplished without passion.“

—  Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, livro Lectures on the Philosophy of History

Variante: We may affirm absolutely that nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.
Contexto: We assert then that nothing has been accomplished without interest on the part of the actors; and — if interest be called passion, inasmuch as the whole individuality, to the neglect of all other actual or possible interests and claims, is devoted to an object with every fibre of volition, concentrating all its desires and powers upon it — we may affirm absolutely that nothing great in the World has been accomplished without passion.

„To play without passion is inexcusable!“

—  Ludwig Van Beethoven German Romantic composer 1770 - 1827

Not found in Beethoven's known works. It may be a summary of the following description of Beethoven from his piano pupil Ferdinand Ries: "When I left out something in a passage, a note or a skip, which in many cases he wished to have specially emphasized, or struck a wrong key, he seldom said anything; yet when I was at fault with regard to the expression, the crescendo or matters of that kind, or in the character of the piece, he would grow angry. Mistakes of the other kind, he said were due to chance; but these last resulted from want of knowledge, feeling or attention. He himself often made mistakes of the first kind, even playing in public."
Variante: To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable

„All passion is lost now. The world is mediocre, limp, without force.“

—  Joseph Conrad, livro The Secret Agent

Fonte: The Secret Agent (1907), Ch. 13
Contexto: All passion is lost now. The world is mediocre, limp, without force. And madness and despair are a force. And force is a crime in the eyes of the fools, the weak and the silly who rule the roost. You are mediocre. Verloc, whose affair the police has managed to smother so nicely, was mediocre. And the police murdered him. He was mediocre. Everybody is mediocre. Madness and despair! Give me that for a lever, and I'll move the world. Ossipon, you have my cordial scorn. You are incapable of conceiving even what the fat-fed citizen would call a crime. You have no force.

„By annihilating the desires, you annihilate the mind. Every man without passions has within him no principle of action, nor motive to act.“

—  Claude Adrien Helvétius French philosopher 1715 - 1771

En anéantissant les désirs, on anéantit l'âme, & tout homme sans passion n'a en lui ni principe d'action, ni motif pour se mouvoir.
