Quotes of Depravation

“ He that has never suffered extreme adversity knows not the full extent of his own depravation. ”

- Charles Caleb Colton

“ Alas, human vices, however horrible one might imagine them to be, contain the proof of man's longing for the infinite; but it is a longing that often takes the wrong route. It is my belief that the reason behind all culpable excesses lies in this depravation of the sense of the infinite. ”

- Charles Baudelaire
