There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive.     

Jack London

Ecstasy is from the contemplation of things vaster than the individual and imperfectly seen perhaps, by all those that still live.     

William Butler Yeats

The ecstasy is so short but the forgetting is so long.     

Walt Whitman

It was then that the ecstasy and the dream began, in which emotion was the matter of the universe, and matter but an adventitious intrusion likely to hinder you from spinning where you wanted to spin.

Ecstasy is not really part of the scene we can do on celluloid.     

Orson Welles

Ecstasy is a complex emotion containing elements of joy, fear, terror, triumph, surrender, and empathy. What has replaced our prehistoric understanding of this complex of ecstasy now is the word comfort, a tremendously bloodless notion.

Terence McKenna

Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.

Ecstasy can be painful when it's intense enough, when the kundalini surges enough. The ecstasy is so complete, it's overwhelming sometimes.     

Frederick Lenz
