A Quote by Warren on emotion, love sex, man woman, relationships, couples life, living, and desire

 

There are three kinds of love: instinctual, emotional and conscious love.  There is no challenge in the mastery of the first two they precede from human biology and frailty.

A Quote by This American Life on vulnerable, vulnerability, authentic, authenticity, emotion, feeling, and high school

...being a good actor is the exact emotional opposite of what it takes to be a successful inmate. Rather than close off all feeling and look tough, you have to open your vulnerable self up, and withstand often cruel laughter as you try to find some authentic emotion within you. In this way, a Level IV, high-security prison is no different from high school.

A Quote by William James on habits, psychology, and emotion

Every time a resolve or a fine glow of feeling evaporates without bearing practical fruit is worse than a chance lost; it works to hinder future resolutions and emotions from taking the normal path of discharge. There is no more contemptible type of human character than that of the nerveless sentimentalist and dreamer, who spends his life in a weltering sea of sensibility and emotion, but who never does a manly concrete deed.

William James (1842 - 1910)

A Quote by Jeffery Eugenides on emotion, words, and feeling

Emotions, in my experience aren't covered by single words. I don't believe in "sadness," "joy," or "regret." I'd like to have at my disposal complicated hybrid emotions, Germanic traincar constructions like, say, "the happiness that attends disaster." Or: "the disappointment of sleeping with one's fantasy." ... I'd like to have a word for "the sadness inspired by failing restaurants" as well as for "the excitement of getting a room with a minibar." I've never had the right words to describe my life...

A Quote by Daniel Goleman on emotion, self-control, and impulse

There is perhaps no psychological skill more fundamental than resisting impulse. It is the root of all emotional self-control, since all emotions, by their very nature, lead to one or another impulse to act. The root meaning of the word emotion, remember, is "to move."

A Quote by Malcolm Gladwell on emotion, feeling, and contagious

If we think about emotion this way -- as outside-in, not inside out -- it is possible to understand how some people can have an enormous amount of influence over others. Some of us, after all, are very good at expressiing emotions and feelings, which means that we are far more emotionally contagious than the rest of us.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on belief, emotion, inspiration, and tears

Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can move their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe.

Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on emotion, needs, people, and world

We need not be afraid to touch, to feel, to show emotion. The easiest thing in the world is to be what you are, what you feel. The hardest thing to be is what other people want you to be.

Leo Buscaglia
