Sensual pleasures have the fleeting
brilliance of a comet; a happy marriage
has the tranquility of a lovely sunset.
- Ann Landers
Real love is the love that sometimes
arises after sensual pleasure:
if it does, it is immortal;
the other kind inevitably goes stale,
for it lies in mere fantasy.
- Giacomo Casanova
I am sensual and very physical.
I'm very erotic.
But my sexuality exists on
a sort of a fantasy level.
- Donna Summer
Purely sensual love is never
true or lasting, for which
reason first love is, as a rule,
but a passing infatuation,
a fleeting passion.
- Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
Sensuality without love is
a sin; love without
sensuality is worse than a sin.
- José Bergamín
Physical pleasure is a sensual
experience no different from pure
seeing or the pure sensation with
which a fine fruit fills the tongue;
it is a great unending experience,
which is given us, a knowing of the
world, the fullness and the glory of
all knowing. And not our acceptance
of it is bad; the bad thing is that
most people misuse and squander this
experience and apply it as a stimulant
at the tired spots of their lives and
as distraction instead of a rallying
toward exalted moments.
- Rainer Maria Rilke
Sensual love deceives one as to the
nature of heavenly love; it could not
do so alone, but since it unconsciously
has the element of heavenly love
within it, it can do so.
- Franz Kafka
may i feel said he
(i’ll squeal said she
just once said he)
it’s fun said she
- e.e. cummings
What a delicious, erotically
sensual torment when your eyes,
your hands, your lips, your very
soul roam all over my body.
- Savanah Hindi
