Feelings

Charlotte Bronte:

Better to be without logic than without feeling.

Susanna K. Langer:

The wide discrepancy between reason and feeling may be unreal; it is not improbable that intellect is a high form of feeling – a specialized, intensive feeling about intuitions.

Audre Lorde:

Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.

Marya Mannes:

You cannot know what you do not feel.

Amelia E. Barr:

Human relations are built on feeling, not on reason or knowledge. And feeling is not an exact science; like all spiritual qualities, it has the vagueness of greatness about it.

Ntozake Shange:

Our society allows people to be absolutely neurotic and totally out of touch with their feelings and everyone else’s feelings, and yet be very respectful.

George Eliot:

It was one of those dangerous moments when speech is at once sincere and deceptive – when feeling, rising high above its average depth, leaves flood-marks which are never reached again.

Anais Nin:

Atrophy of feeling creates criminals.

May Sarton:

Why is it that people who cannot show feeling presume that that is a strength and not a weakness?

Esther Hautzig:

Feelings are untidy.
