41,309.  Use, do not abuse ... neither abstinence nor excess ever renders man happy.  (Abuse & Abstinence & Excess)  Voltaire

 

 

71,731.  Never go to excess but let moderation be your guide.  (Excess & Moderation)  Cicero

 

 

71,732.  Nothing in excess.  Temple of Apollo at Delphi inscription

 

 

71,733.  Ours is a culture based on excess, on overproduction; the result is a steady loss of sharpness in our sensory experience.  All the conditions of modern life - its material plenitude, its sheer crowdedness - conjoin to dull our sensory faculties.  Susan Sontag

 

 

71,734.  To gild the refined gold, to paint the lily,

To throw a perfume on the violet,

To smooth the ice, or add another hue

Unto the rainbow, or with taper light

To seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish

Is wasteful and ridiculous excess.  William Shakespeare, King John IV ii 11

 

 

46,100.  More than a little is by much too much.  (Shakespeare & Excess)  The Tempest 2010 starring Helen Mirren & Felicity Jones & Chris Cooper & Russell Brand & Reeve Carney & Tom Conti & Alan Cumming & Dimon Hounsou & Alfred Molina & Ben Whishaw et al, director Julie Taymor, King

 

 

71,735.  We are no longer in a state of growth; we are in a state of excess. We are living in a society of excrescence.  The boil is growing out of control, recklessly at cross purposes with itself, its impacts multiplying as the causes disintegrate.  Jean Baudrillard

 

 

71,736.  Let’s not quibble!  I’m the foe of moderation, the champion of excess.  If I may lift a line from a die-hard whose identity is lost in the shuffle, I’d rather be strongly wrong than weakly right.  Tallulah Bankhead

 

 

71,737.  The road to excess leads to the palace of wisdom.  William Blake

 

 

71,738.  Excess on occasion is exhilarating.  It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit.  (Excess & Moderation)  Somerset W Maugham

 

 

71,739.  The word ‘excess’ has no meaning for a male.  Richard Dawkins

 

 

53,758.  We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers ... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls.  Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge, and I knew we’d get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.  (Road & Drugs & Las Vegas & Ether & Excess)  Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas 1998 starring Johnny Depp & Benicio del Toro & Tobey Maguire & Ellen Barkin & Gary Busey & Christina Ricci & Mark Harmon & Cameron Diaz & Katherine Helmond & Michael Jeter & Penn Jillette et al, director Terry Gilliam

 

 

71,740.  The mother of excess is not joy but joylessness.  Friedrich Nietzsche 

 

 

71,741.  There are those people who can eat one piece of chocolate, one piece of cake, drink one glass of wine.  There are even people who smoke one or two cigarettes a week.  And then there are people for whom one of anything is not even an option.  Abigail Thomas, Thinking About Memoir

 

 

71,742.  In one sense the drinker learns wisdom, in the words of Goethe or Blake or whichever it was, ‘The pathway to wisdom lies through excess.’  Jack Kerouac, Big Sur

 

 

71,743.  Moderation is a fatal thing.  Nothing succeeds like excess.  (Excess & Moderation)  Oscar Wilde

 

 

84,618.  Our general belief was in moderation.  We preach the virtue of avoiding excesses of every kind.  (Paradise & Moderation & Excess)  Lost Horizon 1937 ***** starring Ronald Colman & Jane Wyatt & H B Warner & Sam Jaffe & John Howard & Edward Everett Horton & Thomas Mitchell & Margo & Isabel Jewell & David Clyde & David Torrence et al, director Frank Capra, Chang
