Quotes with ride
Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
To me, writing is a horseback ride into heaven and hell and back. I am grateful if I can crawl back alive. I'm grateful for the blood in the basin and the pursuit of integrity on the page, a small price to pay.
This quote was used in 1985 Esquire magazine article, however it's not clear who the author was.
...the human being, like the immortals, natually places sexual intercourse far and away above all other joys -- yet he has left it out of his heaven! The very thought of it excites him; opportunity sets him wild; in this state he will risk life, reputation, everything -- even his queer heaven itself -- to make good that opportunity and ride it to the overwhelming climax. From youth to middle age all men and all women prize copulation above all other pleasures combined, yet it actually as I have said: it is not in their heaven; prayer takes its place.
