One who is hungry knows not taste or if the food was cooked well.
One who pursues knowledge knows neither comfort nor sleep.
One who has desires knows no fear or shame.

First 3 statements are absolutely agreed ..........4th one ...agree to disagree with reservation because, to me , desires must not have an end unless otherwise , it becomes a Greed. Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek
And the 3rd statement "pursues knowledge " may be a forced entity to get over the immediate crisis but when it comes to desire for knowledge , it then becomes real ecstasy
