feelings Quotes

All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.

Jean Maurice Eugne Clment Cocteau

Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.

Philip James Bailey

"In God We Trust." It is the choicest compliment that has ever been paid us, and the most gratifying to our feelings. It is simple, direct, gracefully phrased: it always sounds well In God We Trust. I don't believe it would sound any better if it were true. And in a measure it is true half the nation trusts in Him. That half has decided it.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Only during hard times do people come to understand how difficult it is to be master of their feelings and thoughts.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Agriculture is for living; mind culture is for life. Skills are for shaping material things so that they cater more for the comfort of man; studies are for shaping attitudes, feelings, desires, emotions and impulses of man, so that they may confer more peace, more joy and more fortitude on man.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Like great works, deep feelings always mean more than they are conscious of saying.

Albert Camus

Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.

Audre Lorde

Dictatorship is a constant lecture instructing you that your feelings, your thoughts and desires are of no account, that you are a nobody and must live as you are told by other people who desire and think for you.

Stephen Vizinczey

I feel ever so strongly that an artist must be nourished by his passions and his despairs. These things alter an artist whether for the good or the better or the worse. It must alter him. The feelings of desperation and unhappiness are more useful to an artist than the feeling of contentment, because desparation and unhappiness stretch your whole sensibility.

Francis Bacon(painter)

If you are to judge a man, you must know his secret thoughts, sorrows, and feelings; to know merely the outward events of a mans life would only serve to make a chronological table a fools notion of history.

Honor de Balzac

It is important to express oneself... provided the feelings are real and are taken from your own experience.

Berthe Morisot

Each bud flowers but once and each flower has but its minute of perfect beauty; so, in the garden of the soul each feeling has, as it were, its flowering instant, its one and only moment of expansive grace and radiant kingship. Each star passes but once in the night through the meridian over our heads and shines there but an instant; so, in the heaven of the mind each thought touches its zenith but once, and in that moment all its brilliancy and all its greatness culminate. Artist, poet, or thinker, if you want to fix and immortalize your ideas or your feelings, seize them at this precise and fleeting moment, for it is their highest point. Before it, you have but vague outlines or dim presentiments of them. After it you will have only weakened reminiscence or powerless regret; that moment is the moment of your ideal.

Henri-Frdric Amiel

Feelings are not supposed to be logical. Dangerous is the man who has rationalized his emotions.

David Borenstein

The passion of love is essentially selfish, while motherhood widens the circle of our feelings.
