"Excitement, fever, are not ecstasies. They look alike, that is the problem. In life many things look alike and the distinctions are very delicate and fine and subtle. Excitement can look like ecstasy—it is not, because ecstasy is basically cool. Passion is hot. Love is cool, not cold but cool. Hatred is cold. Passion, lust, is hot. Love is exactly in the middle. It is cool—neither cold nor hot. It is a state of tremendous tranquility, calmness, serenity, silence. And out of that silence is poetry, out of that silence is song, out of that silence arises a dance of your being. "by OSHO.
