Desire is an emotion that refers to a strong sense of longing, and you want to have or possess the thing or person that you desire. This can refer to a physical longing that occurs with romantic love or it can be a desire to possess a bigger television, newer car, or more expensive home. Be careful that desire does not turn into obsession, which is unhealthy and can be dangerous.

We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, we are like ignorant children who want to continue making mud pies in a slum because we cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a vacation at the sea. We are far too easily pleased
