A Quote by Virginia Satir on feelings, individuality, toleration, communication, and family

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible ~ the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.

A Quote by John Welwood on john welwood, perfect love, love, feelings, and experience

If there is one thing I've learned in thirty years as a psychotherapist, it is this: If you can let your experience happen, it will release its knots and unfold, leading to a deeper, more grounded experience of yourself. No matter how painful or scary your feelings appear to be, your willingness to engage with them draws forth your essential strength, leading in a more life-positive direction.

A Quote by Audre Lorde on feelings and vision

Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.  They are chaotic, sometimes painful, sometimes contradictory, but they come from deep within us.  And we must key into those feelings... This is how new visions begin.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, definitions, descriptions, opinions, experience, knowledge, knowing, know, loving, living, life, questioning, question, belief, attachment, emotional, emotions, feelings, spirit, and joy

There are those who will dismiss love as a naïve and romantic construct of our culture. Others will wax poetic and tell you that “love is all,””love is the bird call and the glint in a young girl’s eyes on a summer night.” Some will be dogmatic and tell you emphatically that “God is Love.” And some, according to their own experience, will tell us, “Love is a strong emotional attachment to another…”etc. In some cases you will find that people have never thought of questioning love, much less defining it, and object violently even to the suggestion that they think about it. To them love is not to be pondered, it is simply to be experienced. It is true to some degree all of these statements are correct, but to assume that any one is best or all there is to love, is rather simple. So each man lives love in his limited fashion and does not seem to relate the resultant confusion and loneliness to this lack of knowledge about love.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, definitions, descriptions, opinions, experience, knowledge, knowing, know, loving, living, life, questioning, question, belief, attachment, emotional, emotions, feelings, spirit, and joy

In discussing love, it would be well to consider the following premises;

One cannot give what he does not possess. Too give love you must possess love.
One cannot teach what he does not understand. To teach love, you must comprehend love.
One cannot know what he does not study. To study love, you must live in love.
One cannot appreciate what he does not recognize. To recognize love you must be receptive to love.
One cannot have doubt about that which he wishes to trust. To trust love you must be convinced of love.
One cannot admit what he does not yield to. To yield to love you must be vulnerable to love.
One cannot live what he does not dedicate himself to. To dedicate yourself to love you must be forever growing in love.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on soul, mates, intact, resistance, sensitivity, sensitivities, defense, feelings, honest, emotions, healing, understanding, compassion, and self acceptance

“Often we may feel that something in us doesn’t want to be understood or healed. We don’t want to go to the doctor. We decide against taking a class. We’re tired of the friend who always tries to change us, give us advice, or figure us out. These feelings, sometimes dismissed as resistance or defense, may be Daphne sensitivities, honest emotions keeping the soul intact.”
    From “Soul Mates” ~ Thomas Moore ~
