Enthusiasm imparts itself magnetically and fuses all into one happy and harmonious unity of feeling and sentiment
None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm
I prefer the folly of enthusiasm to the indifference of wisdom
When once enthusiasm has been turned into ridicule, everything is undone except money and power
Enthusiasm gives life to what is invisible; and interest to what has no immediate action on our comfort in this world
Enthusiasm is the fever of reason
Opposition embitters the enthusiast but never converts him
Every great and commanding movement in the annals of the world is the triumph of enthusiasm
Enthusiasm is the leaping lightning, not to be measured by the horse-power of the understanding
Enthusiasm is the height of man; it is the passing from the human to the divine

Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
