Desire

Heraclitus, quoted by Bertrand Russell (in “History of Western Philosophy”), was very serious saying that

“It is hard to fight with one’s heart’s desire. Whatever it wishes to get, it purchases at the cost of soul. … It is not good for men to get all that they wish to get.”

George Bernard Shaw (in “Man and Superman” (1903), act 4) responded that

There are two tragedies in life. One is not to get your heart’s desire. The other is to get it.
