    Lust quotes by:    

The nurse of infidelity is sensuality.

    Author: Richard Cecil

Sensual pleasures are like soap-bubbles, sparkling, evanescent. The pleasures of intellect are calm, beautiful, sublime, ever enduring and climbing upward to the borders of the unseen world.

    Author: James H. Aughey

Malice is the devil's picture. Lust makes men brutish; malice makes them devilish - it is mental murder.

    Author: Thomas Watson

Ahab cast a covetous eye at Naboth's vineyard, David a lustful eye at Bathsheba. The eye is the pulse of the soul; as physicians judge of the heart by the pulse, so we by the eye; a rolling eye, a roving heart. The good eye keeps minute time, and strikes when it should; the lustful, crochet-time, and so puts all out of tune.

    Author: Thomas Adams

Satan can only attack us from the outside in. He may work through the lust and sensations of the body or through the mind and emotion of the soul, for those two belong to the outward man.

    Author: Watchman Nee

An affection which is not inspired by the Lord will soon be transformed into lust. Samson is not alone in the history of man in failing in this regard. Delilah is still cutting the hair of man today!

    Author: Watchman Nee

It is no policy to let thy lusts have arms, which are sure to rise and declare against thee when thine enemy comes.

    Author: William Gurnall

Therefore tremble, O man, at any power thou hast, except thou usest it for God. Art thou strong in body; who hath thy strength? God, or thy lusts?

    Author: William Gurnall

There is not only a lack of success for condoms. It's worse than that -- they are utter failures.

    Author: Wendy Wright

God made every one of us a sexual being, and that is good. Attraction and arousal are the natural, spontaneous, God-given responses to physical beauty, while lust is a deliberate act of the will.

    Author: Rick Warren

Dietrich Bonhoeffer made the observation that when lust takes control, "At this moment God...loses all reality... Satan does not fill us with hatred of God, but with forgetfulness of God." What a world of wisdom there is in this statement! When we are in the grip of lust, the reality of God fades... This is what lust does! It has done it millions of times. God disappears to lust-glazed eyes.

James 1 says, "Lust when it conceives brings forth sin"... If you don't win the battle on the inside, it will show up on the outside. A pure conscience is more to be sought than a good reputation.
