"Lust is to the other passions what the nervous fluid is to life; it supports them all, lends strength to them all ambition, cruelty, avarice, revenge, are all founded on lust".
The quote is pretty thorough in providing the full context of its meaning. I find myself inspired by this quote in particular, for several reasons I will aim to eloquently express.
The main reason for my valuation of these words, is the fact that I believe it to be true. Lust has a capricious way of altering and affecting every fiber in our lives. From the most mundane of actions or feelings, to the most complex psychological and spiritual tortures that humans experience.
As we rapaciously romp & ramble through life, the mercurial ways of lust hints, nudges and leads us on, often without humans realizing. How often has lust inspired to a particular reckless course of action, whilst we wouldn't have necessarily made the same choice, if pondered appropriately. The carnal drive to fuck and fornicate is by far shade the most vigorous of its different varieties of temptation.
How sweet is the pleasure of experiencing a new lover for the first time; the delicious bite of an apple you're not supposed to pick, yet it was asking to be pluck and devoured? Feeling a new mouth on your cock or entering the wet cunt of a new maiden, has few equal sensations in life.
Secretly we all lust for what we cannot have, or to have more of what we already posses. It's in our DNA and ingrained into our existence, not nurture, complete nature. There is no safeguard to us overreaching, or extending ourselves beyond our means and measure. A wise, yet ignorant man would argue that the ability to practice moderation is the riposte to the raptures of lust.
Moderation is for fools and people doomed to live lesser lives.
