Great must its claims have been beyond all human thought...true enthusiasm is ours found in these high realms to grow.

Very true being true to their very good ethics is obviously admirable.

It'true! A life without enthusiasm is very dull and sad and empy

Enthusiasm is hope with flash… Precaution is necessity.

This very positive thought belongs to one of Charlotte Bronte's letters.

Is it impossible to kill with an enthusiasm? St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre for example?

This qute is from :
Wrote by Chalote to WILLIAM SMITH WILLIAMS

TO W. S. WILLIAMS

February 25th 1848.

‘My dear Sir,—I thank you for your note; its contents moved me much, though not to unmingled feelings of exultation. Louis Philippe (unhappy and sordid old man!) and M. Guizot doubtless merit the sharp lesson they are now being taught, because they have both proved themselves men of dishonest hearts. And every struggle any nation makes in the cause of Freedom and Truth has something noble in it—something that makes me wish it success; but I cannot believe that France—or at least Paris—will ever be the battle-ground of true Liberty, or the scene of its real triumphs. I fear she does not know “how genuine glory is put on.” Is that strength to be found in her which will not bend “but in magnanimous meekness”? Have not her “unceasing changes” as yet always brought “perpetual emptiness”? Has Paris the materials within her for thorough reform? Mean, dishonest Guizot being discarded, will any better successor be found for him than brilliant, unprincipled Thiers?

‘But I damp your enthusiasm, which I would not wish to do, for true enthusiasm is a fine feeling whose flash I admire wherever I see it.

‘The little note inclosed in yours is from a French lady, who asks my consent to the translation of Jane Eyre into the French language. I thought it better to consult you before I replied. I suppose she is competent to produce a decent translation, though one or two errors of orthography in her note rather afflict the eye; but I know that it is not unusual for what are considered well-educated French women to fail in the point of writing their mother tongue correctly. But whether competent or not, I presume she has a right to translate the book with or without my consent. She gives her address: Mdlle B--- [373] W. Cumming, Esq., 23 North Bank, Regent’s Park.

‘Shall I reply to her note in the affirmative?

‘Waiting your opinion and answer,—I remain, dear sir, yours faithfully,

Think ...depends what that "true enthusiasm is for" .... if it's for evil purposes, then it's not to be admired, but to be stood up against in public and private...

I know of no single formula for success. But over the years I have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal and are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together.

There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.

"True", the qualifier, takes away half of any enthusiasm. The other half is left up to guessing the outcome of it.
