Enthusiasm is the most beautiful word on earth.
      - Christian Morgenstern

The fire of true enthusiasm is like the fires of Baku, which no water can ever quench, and which burn steadily on from night to day, and year to year, because their well-spring is eternal.
      - Ouida (pseudonym of Marie Louise de la Ramee)

Enthusiasm releases the drive to carry you over obstacles and adds significance to all you do.
      - Norman Vincent Peale

There is an eloquence in true enthusiasm.
      - Edgar Allan Poe

Great dejection often follows great enthusiasm.

      - Charles M. Schwab

There is a melancholy which accompanies all enthusiasm.
      - Lord Shaftesbury, 3rd Earl of Shaftesbury (Anthony Ashley Cooper)

Conscience is doubtless sufficient to conduct the coldest character into the road of virtue; but enthusiasm is to conscience what honor is to duty; there is in us a superfluity of soul, which it is sweet to consecrate to the beautiful when the good has been accomplished.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

The sense of this word among the Greeks affords the noblest definition of it: enthusiasm signifies God in us.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

When once enthusiasm has been turned into ridicule, everything is undone except money and power.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

Enthusiasm is grave, inward, self-controlled; mere excitement, outward, fantastic, hysterical, and passing in a moment from tears to laughter.
      - John Sterling

Enthusiasm for a cause sometimes warps judgment.
      - William Howard Taft

None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Let us recognize the beauty and power of true enthusiasm; and whatever we may do to enlighten ourselves and others, guard against checking or chilling a single earnest sentiment.
      - Henry Theodore Tuckerman

Without enthusiasm, the adventurer could never kindle that fire in his followers which is so necessary to consolidate their mutual interests; for no one can heartily deceive numbers who is not first of all deceived himself.
      - Bishop William Warburton

Enthusiasm is that temper of the mind in which the imagination has got the better of the judgment.
