Fanaticism obliterates the feelings of humanity.
Do not give in too much to feelings. A overly sensitive heart is an unhappy possession on this shaky earth.
Favorite poems are like favorite children. We definitely have them but we never tell as the others would have their feelings hurt.
I could take all the cartoons in the tabloid newspapers, but I couldn’t take my daughter punching me in the belly and asking why I was so fat. That was my inspiration to lose the weight. And probably the last time anyone hurt my feelings.
Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings – always darker, emptier and simpler.
God joins us together by means of the body, in consequence of the laws of the communication of movements. He affects us with the same feelings in consequence of the laws of the conjunction of body and soul.
Those most moved to tears by every word of a preacher are generally weak and a rascal when the feelings evaporate.
Beautiful sights arouse feelings of love, and contrary sights bring feelings of disgrace and hate. And the emotions of the soul and spirit bring something additional to the body itself, which exists under the control of the soul and the direction of the spirit.
Poems in a way are spells against death. They are milestones, to see where you were then from where you are now. To perpetuate your feelings, to establish them. If you have in any way touched the central heart of mankind’s feelings, you’ll survive.
Being a leader for me is about having the courage to speak the truth, and live the truth, despite attempts to silence our thoughts, feelings, and past experiences.
