A Quote by Stuart Walton on humanity, community, and emotions

In other words, the emotions are not just those spasmodic bursts of feeling that well up in response to external stimuli. They are the bedrocks on which much, if not all, of our social and cultural lives rest. It is that realisation that dispels the idea that, in some future utopia, we might evolve to a stage wher we feel no emotion -- that, and the fact that if we ever did manage to acheive such a state, we would arguably have ceased to be human at all.
