Feelings

A feeling is no longer the same when it comes the second time. It dies through the awareness of its return. We become tired and weary of our feelings when they come too often and last too long. - Pascal Mercier

Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone. - Fred Rogers

Feeling acts as an impulse, as a spur, as a spring, and when feelings are excited, and they put nothing forward, they are sometimes even dangerous to a man. - Henry Ward Beecher

Feeling is the oil of life. - Edward Counsel

Man’s feelings are always purest and most glowing in the hour of meeting and of farewell. - Jean Paul Richter

There's no 'should' or 'should not' when it comes to having feelings. They're part of who we are and their origins are beyond our control. When we can believe that, we may find it easier to make constructive choices about what to do with those feelings. - Fred Rogers

To give vent now and then to his feelings, whether of pleasure or discontent, is a great ease to a man’s heart. - Francesco Guicciardini

We as human beings do this thing where we stuff down our feelings until they find a way to manifest themselves. We try to avoid them until there's no more room and they come bubbling up like a pot of boiling-hot water that overflows. And when it does, it burns. - Jennifer Lopez

When you want someone to understand your feelings – remember, a person can’t know something you have not expressed! Unsaid words become unheard. - Unknown

You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings. - Pearl S. Buck
