A Quote by David Bohm on thought, mind, feeling, and assumption

When you are thinking something, you have the feeling that the thoughts do nothing except inform you the way things are and then you choose to do something and you do it.  That's what people generally assume.  But actually, the way you think determines the way you're going to do things.  Then you don't notice a result comes back, or you don't see it as a result of what you've done, or even less do you see it as a result of how you were thinking.  Is that clear?

A Quote by Pema Chodron on feeling, emotion, and communication

Only in an open, nonjudgmental space can we acknowledge what we are feeling. Only in an open space where we're not all caught up in our own version of reality can we see and hear and feel who others really are, which allows us to be with them and communicate with them properly.

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 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 Lotte Lehmann on paralyzed, enchained, patterns, build, youthful, feeling, groping, thought, flowering, and perception

Do not become paralyzed and enchained by the set patterns which have been woven of old.  No, build from your own youthful feeling, your own groping thought and your own flowering perception.

Facts don’t persuade, feelings do. And stories are the best way to get at those feelings.
