There's so much more subtlety to this new recording. There's a subtlety in the playing. There's also a subtlety in the way I approached the singing. The band was able to really capture the feeling of the songs and not really trade anything that we had sort of arranged for the live presentation, but the songs just aren't as loud.Jason Molina Not Feeling Sayings By Jason Molina: There's so much more subtlety to this new recording. There's a subtlety in the playing.
Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every field precisely due to their feeling of playing a relatively small part in the creation of living beings, which constantly impels them to an overcompensation in achievement?Karen Horney Not Feeling Sayings By Karen Horney: Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every
A butterfly does not wonder how it can stop being a caterpillar. It simply feels some feeling from within that tells it: isolate yourself in this cocoon and grow within it. It trusts that feeling. When it comes out, it is radiant and beautiful. All the little bug did was follow its nature. You are no different.Vironika Tugaleva Not Feeling Sayings By Vironika Tugaleva: A butterfly does not wonder how it can stop being a caterpillar. It simply feels
When coming up with Wonder Woman cover designs, sometimes people will pitch ideas to me, either the writer or the editor. And it's interesting, because I know they're not trying to, but they end up pitching things that end up feeling like damsel-in-distress covers, where the tension comes from her needing to be rescued somehow. And it's something I immediately push back against.Cliff Chiang Not Feeling Sayings By Cliff Chiang: When coming up with Wonder Woman cover designs, sometimes people will pitch ideas to me,
I don't banter with the audience, cause I don't have anything to say to them, and I'm not feeling any sense of ease or camaraderie when I'm on stage.Dan Bejar Not Feeling Sayings By Dan Bejar: I don't banter with the audience, cause I don't have anything to say to them,
My feeling is that I think writers in general tend to be self-conscious and it takes a bit of a leap of faith or just not giving a sh-t to write something you know people are going to criticize.Conor Oberst Not Feeling Sayings By Conor Oberst: My feeling is that I think writers in general tend to be self-conscious and it
Though I work in New York City, in an office about a mile from the World Trade Center, I was not in New York City when the planes struck. I was on a plane above the Atlantic Ocean, heading back to New York from a family reunion and celebration in Europe. I had said good-bye to my husband in London; he was staying for a wedding of a business friend. I couldn't wait to see my kids and my parents, who would be waiting for me at a Little League game in our town, about thirty-five miles from New York City. An hour and a half into the flight, I suddenly had the feeling that the plane was making a slow turn. Nobody else seemed to notice. I sat nervously, hoping I was imagining it. But then a stewardess made an announcement. "There has been a catastrophic event affecting all of North American airspace," she said. "We are returningLauren Tarshis Not Feeling Sayings By Lauren Tarshis: Though I work in New York City, in an office about a mile from the
It's not a large crowd," he said, "and I have the feeling this wedding party is going to end in an orgy." He shrugged his shoulders.Patrick Modiano Not Feeling Sayings By Patrick Modiano: It's not a large crowd," he said, "and I have the feeling this wedding party
There's something about you," Tate tried to explain as he traced his fingers along his jaw. "In the way you are. It pulls me in, Logan. I can't imagine knowing you and not feeling it.Ella Frank Not Feeling Sayings By Ella Frank: There's something about you," Tate tried to explain as he traced his fingers along his
And then when all around grows dark, when we feel utterly alone, when all men right and left pass us by and know us not, a forgotten feeling rises in the breast.Max Muller Not Feeling Sayings By Max Muller: And then when all around grows dark, when we feel utterly alone, when all men
Luke came to me and took the gun out of my hand. "I need to find a way to erase the last three minutes," he muttered, sounding aggrieved.
"Why?" I asked.
"I just watched my boy's sister strip. There's laws against that," he replied, not taking his eyes off Mace ... but I had a feeling what Luke was doing was studiously avoiding seeing me in sequined undies and stripper shoes.
"No there's not," I said to Luke and he finally looked at me.
"Babe, there are. Trust me," he stated.
Kristen Ashley Not Feeling Sayings By Kristen Ashley: Luke came to me and took the gun out of my hand. "I need to
Most therapists do not appear to know how to pinpoint and reverse therapeutic resistance - to head it off at the pass. Instead, they try to persuade the patient to change, or to do the psychotherapy homework, while the patient resists and 'yes-butts' the therapist. The therapist ends up feeling frustrated and resentful, and doing all the work.David D. Burns Not Feeling Sayings By David D. Burns: Most therapists do not appear to know how to pinpoint and reverse therapeutic resistance -
Beyond question the feeling of a lover has in it something akin to friendship; one might call it friendship run mad. But, though this is true, does anyone love for the sake of gain, or promotion, or renown? Pure[7] love, careless of all other things, kindles the soul with desire for the beautiful object, not without the hope of a return of the affection.Seneca. Not Feeling Sayings By Seneca.: Beyond question the feeling of a lover has in it something akin to friendship; one
Sometimes not being in control, not being able to think, just losing yourself in the moment, is the greatest feeling in the world. It's liberating. It's addicting. It's the most powerful high you'll ever get. It's a kind of freedom that tastes so sweet on your palate that you can't help but want more each time you have it.Mia Asher Not Feeling Sayings By Mia Asher: Sometimes not being in control, not being able to think, just losing yourself in the
I have the feeling that the magazine can reach many more people than it reaches and has something to offer that not everyone knows who should know it. That's why we're starting an app, and that's why we do the blog. But editorially, I think it's mainly a matter of keeping your eyes peeled. You just really don't know what's going to come along.Lorin Stein Not Feeling Sayings By Lorin Stein: I have the feeling that the magazine can reach many more people than it reaches
He did not know how long it took, but later he looked back on this time of crying in the corner of the dark cave and thought of it as when he learned the most important rule of survival, which was that feeling sorry for yourself didn't work. It wasn't just that it was wrong to do, or that it was considered incorrect. It was more than that
it didn't work.
Gary Paulsen Not Feeling Sayings By Gary Paulsen: He did not know how long it took, but later he looked back on this
The theory of positivity teaches us to, "always look on the bright side" and to, "point out the bright side to others". However, any highly empathic individual will know, that this mindset alienates us from other people. What connects us with other people is the ability to identify with what they are feeling and thinking, regardless of whether or not we've actually been in their place before. If you want to point someone out to the light, first you need to get into their dark cave with them, light a candle, and say, "Hey, I'm here with you and look, remember what the light feels like?" That's the kind of positivity that actually bears real change in people, in the world.C. JoyBell C. Not Feeling Sayings By C. JoyBell C.: The theory of positivity teaches us to, "always look on the bright side" and to,
Marriage is not a process for prolonging the life of love, sir. It merely mummifies its corpse.P.G. Wodehouse Not Feeling Sayings By P.G. Wodehouse: Marriage is not a process for prolonging the life of love, sir. It merely mummifies
The devil is no fool. He can get people feeling about heaven the way they ought to feel about hell. He can make them fear the means of grace the way they do not fear sin. And he does so, not by light but by obscurity, not by realities but by shadows; not by clarity and substance, but by dreams and the creatures of psychosis. And men are so poor in intellect that a few cold chills down their spine will be enough to keep them from ever finding out the truth about anything.Thomas Merton Not Feeling Sayings By Thomas Merton: The devil is no fool. He can get people feeling about heaven the way they
Yes! Thank God; human feeling is like the mighty rivers that bless the earth: it does not wait for beauty - it flows with resistless force and brings beauty with it ... There are few prophets in the world; few sublimely beautiful women; few heroes. I can't afford to give all my love and reverence to such rarities: I want a great deal of those feelings for my every-day fellow-men, especially for the few in the foreground of the great multitude, whose faces I know, whose hands I touch, for whom I have to make way with kindly courtesy.George Eliot Not Feeling Sayings By George Eliot: Yes! Thank God; human feeling is like the mighty rivers that bless the earth: it
Full color experience is peculiarly satisfying even though it is exhausting and leaves you feeling two-thirds color blind when you're not making the effort.William Tapley Bennett Jr. Not Feeling Sayings By William Tapley Bennett Jr.: Full color experience is peculiarly satisfying even though it is exhausting and leaves you feeling
Whatever actions may have been appropriate for your survival when you were a child, are probably no longer necessary. However, the ego cannot know that. It is like a computer program, reacting to life robotically; doing what it deems is most applicable in the present circumstance, according to past experience. The problem is, it often blocks you from feeling what is appropriate in the present moment, through its preconceived notions of what worked best in the past, and may not necessarily pertain any longer. For example you may resist intimacy now by pushing others away, in effect shut them out, because as a five year old you did the same in order to protect your vulnerability.Paula Horan Not Feeling Sayings By Paula Horan: Whatever actions may have been appropriate for your survival when you were a child, are
THE ANGLER "I live not in myself, but I become Portion of that around me; and to me High mountains are a feeling, but the hum Of human cities torture." Byron.Charles Barker Bradford Not Feeling Sayings By Charles Barker Bradford: THE ANGLER "I live not in myself, but I become Portion of that around me;
When you're scared - and I mean really scared, not just hearing a noise in the night, or standing toe to toe with someone twice your size who wants to pound you into the earth - it feels as if you're being injected with darkness. It's like black water as cold as ice settling in your body where your blood and marrow used to be, pushing every other feeling out as it fills you from your feet to your scalp. It leaves you with nothing.Alexander Gordon Smith Not Feeling Sayings By Alexander Gordon Smith: When you're scared - and I mean really scared, not just hearing a noise in
At what age should one marry? As a rule of thumb, perhaps not until you are past the age of feeling strongly that you must marry.Jo Coudert Not Feeling Sayings By Jo Coudert: At what age should one marry? As a rule of thumb, perhaps not until you
I was late to understand that chaos and intensity are no subsitute for lasting love, nor are they necessarily an improvement on real life. Normal people are not always boring. On the contrary. Volatility and passion, although often more romantic and enticing, are not intrinsically preferable to a steadiness of experience and feeling about another person.Kay Redfield Jamison Not Feeling Sayings By Kay Redfield Jamison: I was late to understand that chaos and intensity are no subsitute for lasting love,
As a black actor, you always have the feeling that there's not as much work out there as for a white counterpart, but is America after all; you have to play ball if you're going to play ball.Dorian Missick Not Feeling Sayings By Dorian Missick: As a black actor, you always have the feeling that there's not as much work
It's a lovely feeling, just working away at the desk, putting words down, building words up ... I think you have to be aware that what you're doing is not just a private act, it's a societal thing.Sarah Hall Not Feeling Sayings By Sarah Hall: It's a lovely feeling, just working away at the desk, putting words down, building words
No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe.John Steinbeck Not Feeling Sayings By John Steinbeck: No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce
There's nothing "grown-up" about wanting the State to punish people without evidence of guilt so that you can feel safe. It's actually a deeply childish need at the heart of all authoritarianism - the desire for a big daddy figure to keep you safe from the Bad People even it means there are no legal constraints, due process, or transparency.
Children growing up learn that their Daddy is omnipotent and omniscient and exercises his unchecked power for benevolent ends - it's a nice, safe feeling, and many continue to cling to it in adulthood, hoping the Security State will provide that. Many adjectives can and should be used to describe that need - "grown-up" definitely is not among them.
Glenn Greenwald Not Feeling Sayings By Glenn Greenwald: There's nothing "grown-up" about wanting the State to punish people without evidence of guilt so
I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That's what everyone wants. Not 24-7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have a feeling that they can't hide.Rachel Cohn Not Feeling Sayings By Rachel Cohn: I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song
Our societies put into the category of the pathological what other cultures consider normal - the preponderance of pain - and put into the category of the normal and even the necessary what others see as exceptional - the feeling of happiness. The question is not whether we are more or less happy than our ancestors: our conception of happiness has changed, and to change utopias is to change constraints. But we are probably living in the world's first societies that make people unhappy not to be happy.Pascal Bruckner Not Feeling Sayings By Pascal Bruckner: Our societies put into the category of the pathological what other cultures consider normal -
I don't think you will ever be able to understand what it is like - the utter loneliness, the feeling of desperation - to be abandoned in a deep well in the middle of the desert at the edge of the world, overcome by intense pain in total darkness. I went so far as to regret that the Mongolian noncom had not simply shot me and got it over with. If I had been killed that way, at least they would have been aware of my death. If I died here, however, it would be truly a lonely death, a death of no concern to anyone, a silent death.Haruki Murakami Not Feeling Sayings By Haruki Murakami: I don't think you will ever be able to understand what it is like -
This is a feeling that you had, Quentin, she said. Once, a very long time ago. A rare one. This is how you felt when you were eight years old, and you opened one of the Fillory books for the first time, and you felt awe and joy and hope and longing all at once. You felt them very strongly, Quentin. You dreamed of Fillory then, with a power and an innocence that not many people ever experience. That's where all this began for you. You wanted the world to be better than it was.Lev Grossman Not Feeling Sayings By Lev Grossman: This is a feeling that you had, Quentin, she said. Once, a very long time
I discovered that joy is not the negation of pain, but rather acknowledging the presence of pain and feeling happiness in spite of it.Lupita Nyong'o Not Feeling Sayings By Lupita Nyong'o: I discovered that joy is not the negation of pain, but rather acknowledging the presence
I certainly must,' said she. 'This sensation of listlessness, weariness, stupidity, this disinclination to sit down and employ myself, this feeling of everything's being dull and insipid about the house! I must be in love; I should be the oddest creature in the world if I were not.Jane Austen Not Feeling Sayings By Jane Austen: I certainly must,' said she. 'This sensation of listlessness, weariness, stupidity, this disinclination to sit
The Truth is far more all-encompassing than the mind could ever comprehend. No thought can encapsulate the Truth. At best, it can point to it. For example, it can say: "All things are intrinsically one (The Pearl of Great Price)." That is a pointer, not an explanation. Understanding these words means feeling deep within you the truth to which they point.Eckhart Tolle Not Feeling Sayings By Eckhart Tolle: The Truth is far more all-encompassing than the mind could ever comprehend. No thought can
Again, was it not this same presentiment of death that made it seem so strange to me now that I should never again walk along this path in the Philippine forest? In our own country, even in the most distant or inaccessible part, this feeling of strangeness never comes to us, because subconsciously we know that there is always a possibility of our returning there in the future. Does not our entire life-feeling depend upon this inherent assumption that we can repeat indefinitely what we are doing at the moment?Shohei Ooka Not Feeling Sayings By Shohei Ooka: Again, was it not this same presentiment of death that made it seem so strange
The truth is that art does not teach; it makes you feel, and any teaching that may arise from the feeling is an extra, and must not be stressed too much. In the modern world, and in Canada as much as anywhere, we are obsessed with the notion that to think is the highest achievement of mankind, but we neglect the fact that thought untouched by feeling is thin, delusive, treacherous stuff.Robertson Davies Not Feeling Sayings By Robertson Davies: The truth is that art does not teach; it makes you feel, and any teaching
As in all matters involving love, which has so many different meanings, you find that the feeling that we label 'love' is not a simple feeling, it's a very complex one. Under the heading 'love' can come all sorts of rage and desperation.Helen Garner Not Feeling Sayings By Helen Garner: As in all matters involving love, which has so many different meanings, you find that
Heaven and hell are not very distant, they are neighbors; only a small fence divides them. You can jump that fence, even without a gate. You go on jumping from this to that. In the morning you may be in heaven; by evening you are in hell. This moment heaven, that moment hell. It is just an attitude, just a state of your mind, just how you are feeling. Many times, in a single life, you may visit hell, and many times you may visit heaven. In a single day also ...Rajneesh Not Feeling Sayings By Rajneesh: Heaven and hell are not very distant, they are neighbors; only a small fence divides
I think that generally, being honest with oneself and others about what you are or are not capable of doing can counteract that feeling of lack of self-confidence.Dalai Lama XIV Not Feeling Sayings By Dalai Lama XIV: I think that generally, being honest with oneself and others about what you are or
Her assessment was that I had poor judgment, and my rape had immediately confirmed it. I believed that the rape had erased all of the progress I'd made in my time hiking and proved my mother right. Immediately. I was hurting with not only the shame of the rape, but also the shame of feeling I'd wanted to prove myself a valid, independent person - but I couldn't.Aspen Matis Not Feeling Sayings By Aspen Matis: Her assessment was that I had poor judgment, and my rape had immediately confirmed it.
Americans come out of the comparison rather better. They may overdo emotion, but they are not fearful of it. A surplus of feeling has rarely done as much damage as a deficiency of it.Terry Eagleton Not Feeling Sayings By Terry Eagleton: Americans come out of the comparison rather better. They may overdo emotion, but they are
You know, for me, the realization that two people should have the right to form a sacred union regardless of their gender was strengthened when I saw a performance of the play The Normal Heart in 1985. After feeling the love those two men had for each other, I dare anybody not to want them to get married by the end.Barbra Streisand Not Feeling Sayings By Barbra Streisand: You know, for me, the realization that two people should have the right to form
Feeling has as much to say as the words do. You can have the greatest words in the world and if they're not believable, they don't strike a chord and they're not said convincingly, it's not a great song.Sam Phillips Not Feeling Sayings By Sam Phillips: Feeling has as much to say as the words do. You can have the greatest
Happiness is a necessity. It's not a thing money can buy but a feeling that comes from within.Abdulazeez Henry Musa Not Feeling Sayings By Abdulazeez Henry Musa: Happiness is a necessity. It's not a thing money can buy but a feeling that
It's not enough that we have to handle our own race's problems," Claude said. "Now we're sucked into the fucking vampire struggles, too."
"No," I said, feeling I was walking uphill in this conversation. "You as a group weren't sucked into the vampire struggles. One of you was taken for a specific purpose. Different scenario.
Charlaine Harris Not Feeling Sayings By Charlaine Harris: It's not enough that we have to handle our own race's problems," Claude said. "Now
Such is professional jealousy; a scientist will never show any kindness for a theory which he did not start himself. There is no feeling of brotherhood among these people. Indeed, they always resent it when I call them brother. To show how far their ungenerosity can carry them, I will state that I offered to let Prof. H
y publish my great theory as his own discovery; I even begged him to do it; I even proposed to print it myself as his theory. Instead of thanking me, he said that if I tried to fasten that theory on him he would sue me for slander.
Mark Twain Not Feeling Sayings By Mark Twain: Such is professional jealousy; a scientist will never show any kindness for a theory which
I know well that healing comes-if one is brave-from within, through profound resignation to suffering and death, through the surrender of your own will and of your self-love. But that is of no use to me; I love to paint, to see people and things and everything that makes our life-artificial, if you like. Yes, real life would be a different thing, but I do not belong to that category of souls who are ready to live and also at any moment to suffer. I am everything but courageous in sorrow, and everything but patient when I am not feeling well, though I have rather a good deal of patience in keeping to my work.Vincent Van Gogh Not Feeling Sayings By Vincent Van Gogh: I know well that healing comes-if one is brave-from within, through profound resignation to suffering
I read the paragraph again. A peculiar feeling it gave me. I don't know if you have ever experienced the sensation of seeing the announcement of the engagement of a pal of yours to a girl whom you were only saved from marrying yourself by the skin of your teeth. It induces a sort of
well, it's difficult to describe it exactly; but I should imagine a fellow would feel much the same if he happened to be strolling through the jungle with a boyhood chum and met a tigress or a jaguar, or what not, and managed to shin up a tree and looked down and saw the friend of his youth vanishing into the undergrowth in the animal's slavering jaws. A sort of profound, prayerful relief, if you know what I mean, blended at the same time with a pang of pity. What I'm driving at is that, thankful as I was that I hadn't had to marry Honoria myself, I was sorry to see a real good chap like old Biffy copping it. I sucked down a spot of tea and began brooding over the business.
P.G. Wodehouse Not Feeling Sayings By P.G. Wodehouse: I read the paragraph again. A peculiar feeling it gave me. I don't know if
The best thing that I can offer to people is just to be honest, and that's a rare quality. In doing so, I think there's always a top down feeling that permeates a working environment. If the boss is cool and he's a certain way that's not bullshitting, then everyone around is going to feel that comfort and try to be that way, as well. That's just who I strive to be, as a person.Joe Hahn Not Feeling Sayings By Joe Hahn: The best thing that I can offer to people is just to be honest, and
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.Pema Chodron Not Feeling Sayings By Pema Chodron: Only in an open, nonjudgmental space can we acknowledge what we are feeling. Only in
Biblical hope means confidence in the future. It's a confidence born of faith. Faith, hope and love go together (1 Cor. 13). When we have faith in God, we claim His promises, and they give us hope for the future. Hope for the Christian is not a feeling of "I hope it's going to happen." It's exciting expectancy because God controls the future. When Jesus Christ is your Savior and your Lord, the future is your friend. You don't have to worry.Warren W. Wiersbe Not Feeling Sayings By Warren W. Wiersbe: Biblical hope means confidence in the future. It's a confidence born of faith. Faith, hope
The prophecies are not literal, Mistress," OreSeur said. "They're metaphors - expressions of hope. Or, at least, that is how I have always seen them. Perhaps your Terris prophecies are the same? Expressions of a belief that if the people were in danger, their gods would send a Hero to protect them? In this case, the vagueness would be intentional - and rational. The prophecies were never meant to mean something specific, but more to speak of a general feeling. A general hope.Brandon Sanderson Not Feeling Sayings By Brandon Sanderson: The prophecies are not literal, Mistress," OreSeur said. "They're metaphors - expressions of hope. Or,
Cassia had a feeling Kane might not follow her instructions to the letter, but she never expected him to come barreling into the docking lot with Arabelle hoisted over one shoulder, shielding his head with his free arm and yelling like his pants were on fire. Behind him, Doran and Solara ran through the open doorway, each armed with a stolen pulse pistol and firing indiscriminately at someone out of view.
So much for smooth negotiating.
Melissa Landers Not Feeling Sayings By Melissa Landers: Cassia had a feeling Kane might not follow her instructions to the letter, but she
When we are in love, our love is too big a thing for us to be able altogether to contain it within ourselves. It radiates towards the loved one, finds there a surface which arrests it, forcing it to return to its starting-point, and it is this repercussion of our own feeling which we call the other's feelings and which charms us more then than on its outward journey because we do not recognise it as having originated in ourselves.Marcel Proust Not Feeling Sayings By Marcel Proust: When we are in love, our love is too big a thing for us to
Feeling pain is still better than not feeling, isn't it?Jonathan Safran Foer Not Feeling Sayings By Jonathan Safran Foer: Feeling pain is still better than not feeling, isn't it?
Forgiveness is a CHOICE, not a feeling.Joyce Meyer Not Feeling Sayings By Joyce Meyer: Forgiveness is a CHOICE, not a feeling.
That's the dream scenario: when people approach these stressful situations not focused on that concrete outcome but just focused on being there and being themselves and enjoying connecting with people. You're not going to be present all the time, but if you can figure out how to connect with yourself and bring that self forth in those moments, you will probably be feeling a lot better over time, and it's likely that even though you're not focused on the outcome, the outcomes will be better.Amy Cuddy Not Feeling Sayings By Amy Cuddy: That's the dream scenario: when people approach these stressful situations not focused on that concrete
Accepting and feeling sympathy and love is not so healing as giving it.Ruth Draper Not Feeling Sayings By Ruth Draper: Accepting and feeling sympathy and love is not so healing as giving it.
In truth she is not a hard lady naturally, and the time has been when the sight of the venerable figure suing to her with such strong earnestness would have moved her to great compassion. But so long accustomed to suppress emotion and keep down reality, so long schooled for her own purposes in that destructive school which shuts up the natural feelings of the heart like flies in amber and spreads one uniform and dreary gloss over the good and bad, the feeling and the unfeeling, the sensible and the senseless, she had subdued even her wonder until now.Charles Dickens Not Feeling Sayings By Charles Dickens: In truth she is not a hard lady naturally, and the time has been when
What is this thing of intangible substance that wreaks consequential havoc on our lives? What is this sensitive thread that runs through heart and mind, and when given the slightest tremor grasps hold of all sanity, dragging the afflicted down to insufferable depths or flinging him weightless to euphoric heights? What is this magic we would deem imagination, fantasy, or pretend if not for the evidence of power manifest by human consequences? Effortlessly controlling us, it affects the infected in an instant. It takes but one word, one thought, one act to become immersed.
To stop it is hopeless.
To stifle it, demanding.
To think to master it is both improbable and pretentious.
What is this invisible hand that blinds our eyes and reigns hearts with a string? It is nature's drug and poison we call emotion.
Richelle E. Goodrich Not Feeling Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: What is this thing of intangible substance that wreaks consequential havoc on our lives? What
Anxiety is not fear, being afraid of this or that definite object, but the uncanny feeling of being afraid of nothing at all. It is precisely Nothingness that makes itself present and felt as the object of our dread.William Barrett Not Feeling Sayings By William Barrett: Anxiety is not fear, being afraid of this or that definite object, but the uncanny
There is no general doctrine which is not capable of eating out our morality if unchecked by the deep-seated habit of direct fellow-feeling with individual fellow-men.George Eliot Not Feeling Sayings By George Eliot: There is no general doctrine which is not capable of eating out our morality if
Too often when we say we feel joyful, we're really feeling manic. There is a frenetic nature to our joy, a whiff of panic; we're afraid the moment might end abruptly. But then there are other moments when our joy is more solidly grounded. I am not speaking of a transcendental moment, of bliss, but something less.Eric Weiner Not Feeling Sayings By Eric Weiner: Too often when we say we feel joyful, we're really feeling manic. There is a
If it will give you any satisfaction in the end, I still care for you. Either there is no such thing as love, or the word does not mean what I have thought it to mean on many different occasions. It is a feeling without a name, really - better to leave it at that. So take it and go away and have your fun with it. You know that we would both be at one another's throats again one day, as soon as we run out of common enemies. We had many fine reconciliations, but were they ever worth the pain that preceded them? Know that you have won and that you are the goddess I worship - for are not worship and religious awe a combination of love and hate, desire and fear?Roger Zelazny Not Feeling Sayings By Roger Zelazny: If it will give you any satisfaction in the end, I still care for you.
You love him still and struggle against your love, feeling that it will undo you. He knows this and he will tempt you by every lure he can devise, every deceit he can employ. Sorrow and sin will surely follow if you yield; happiness never can be yours with him; doubt, remorse and self-reproach will kill love, and a time will come when you will find that in gaining a brief joy you have lost your peace forever. Oh, Agatha, be warned in time, do not listen to your own weak heart but to the conscience that nothing can bribe or silence.Louisa May Alcott Not Feeling Sayings By Louisa May Alcott: You love him still and struggle against your love, feeling that it will undo you.
Can't two people be in love and both be so intelligent and so sensitive that there is freedom and absence of a center that makes for conflict? Conflict is not the feeling of being in love. The feeling of being in love is utterly without conflict. There is no loss of energy in being in love. The loss of energy is in the tail, in everything that follows - jealousy, possessiveness, suspicion, doubt, the fear of losing that love, the constant demand for reassurance and security. Surely, it must be possible to function in a sexual relationship with someone you love without the nightmare which usually follows. Of course it is.Jiddu Krishnamurti Not Feeling Sayings By Jiddu Krishnamurti: Can't two people be in love and both be so intelligent and so sensitive that
The driver got out smiling. He looked about seventeen or eighteen, and for a second, I had the uneasy feeling it was Luke, my old enemy. This guy had the same sandy hair and outdoorsy good looks. But it wasn't Luke. His smile was brighter and more playful. (Luke didn't do much more than scowl and sneer these days.) The Maserati driver wore jeans and loafers and a sleeveless T-shirt.

[I]t seems to me that a lot of the stranger ideas people have about medicine derive from an emotional struggle with the very notion of a pharmaceutical industry. Whatever our political leanings, we all feel nervous about profit taking any role in the caring professions, but that feeling has nowhere to go. Big pharma is evil; I would agree with that premise. But because people don't understand exactly how big pharma is evil, their anger gets diverted away from valid criticisms - its role in distorting data, for example, or withholding lifesaving AIDS drugs from the developing world - and channeled into infantile fantasies. "Big pharma is evil," goes the line of reasoning; "therefore homeopathy works and the MMR vaccine causes autism." This is probably not helpful.Ben Goldacre Not Feeling Sayings By Ben Goldacre: [I]t seems to me that a lot of the stranger ideas people have about medicine
Words are like seeds, I think, planted into our hearts at a tender age. They take root in us as we grow, settling deep into our souls. The good words plant well. They flourish and find homes in our hearts. They build trunks around our spines, steadying us when we're feeling most flimsy; planting our feet firmly when we're feeling most unsure. But the bad words grow poorly. Our trunks infest and spoil until we are hollow and housing the interests of others and not our own. We are forced to eat the fruit those words have borne, held hostage by the branches growing arms around our necks, suffocating us to death, one word at a time.Tahereh Mafi Not Feeling Sayings By Tahereh Mafi: Words are like seeds, I think, planted into our hearts at a tender age.

But the trouble was that the hysterics could not go on for ever, and (I am writing the loathsome truth) lying face downwards on the sofa with my face thrust into my nasty leather pillow, I began by degrees to be aware of a far-away, involuntary but irresistible feeling that it would be awkward now for me to raise my head and look Liza straight in the face. Why was I ashamed? I don't know, but I was ashamed.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Not Feeling Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: But the trouble was that the hysterics could not go on for ever, and (I

We're a couple of travelers!" I called up to her. "I'm Briony, and this is Ella!"

"Grammy said I ought not to talk to strangers!" she called back.

"We're not strangers!" Ella shouted. "We're with the union!"

I cut her a look and mouthed, Union?, which was silly with this other girl out of earshot. Ella shrugged.

There was a pause before the girl called somewhat timidly given we were shouting, "What union?"

"We represent the Coalition of Self-Rescuing Princesses," Ella replied.

"But I'm not a princess!"

"That's fine!" I called, sighing as I prepared to lay on the charm with this ridiculous foible. "We of the Coalition of Self-Rescuing Princesses do not discriminate based on social caste, for we believe that every damsel in distress has the heart of a princess!"

"Are you feeling subjugated?" Ella continued. "Yearning to be free, wondering when your prince will come and what's taking him so damn long?

Why is one a slave to thought ? Why has thought become so important in all our lives -thought being ideas, being the response to the accumulated memories in the brain cells? Perhaps many of you have not even asked such a question before, or if you have you may have said, "it's of very little importance- what is important is emotion." But I don't see how you can separate the two. If thought does not give continuity to feeling, feeling dies very quickly. So why in our daily lives, in our grinding, boring, frightened lives, has thought taken on such inordinate importance?Jiddu Krishnamurti Not Feeling Sayings By Jiddu Krishnamurti: Why is one a slave to thought ?

But then, maybe loneliness didn't have anything to do with how many people we had in our lives. Maybe it was really about how we felt on the inside.

And maybe I should go ahead and let myself feel these things, instead of always trying to push down and deny every negative emotion. Maybe they were just a part of me, and maybe it was okay to not always feel happy and positive. I was forever trying to silence that other part of myself, but maybe I'd feel more whole if I stopped doing that.

To feel everything in every way; to be able to think with the emotions and feel with the mind; not to desire much except with the imagination; to suffer with haughtiness; to see clearly so as to write accurately; to know oneself through diplomacy and dissimulation; to become naturalized as a different person, with all the necessary documents; in short, to use all sensations but only on the inside, peeling them all down to God and then wrapping everything up again and putting it back in the shop window like the sales assistant I can see from here with the small tins of a new brand of shoe polish.Fernando Pessoa Not Feeling Sayings By Fernando Pessoa: To feel everything in every way; to be able to think with the emotions and

We have one mind, and it contains both thought and feeling. Passion and reason combine as one in our mind. Only when we are at war with ourselves do they diverge, but this is pathology not a healthy state. They are both parts of the whole, each a subsystem embedded in an integrated, larger system. There is nothing more human than our reason and our emotions. We are probably the most emotional creature on the earth as a result of the complexity and subtlety of our thought, our mind's and body's role in adaptation, and our dependency on other people, all of which are relevant to survival and how we flourish as individuals and a species.Richard S. Lazarus Not Feeling Sayings By Richard S. Lazarus: We have one mind, and it contains both thought and feeling. Passion and reason combine
My first step from the old white man was trees. Then air. Then birds. Then other people. But one day when I was sitting quiet and feeling like a motherless child, which I was, it come to me: that feeling of being part of everything, not separate at all. I knew that if I cut a tree, my arm would bleed. And I laughed and I cried and I run all around the house. I knew just what it was. In fact, when it happen, you can't miss it.Alice Walker Not Feeling Sayings By Alice Walker: My first step from the old white man was trees. Then air. Then birds. Then
And yet. And yet. If asked - if pressed - Honora would have to say she is strangely content. It's an odd feeling that she cannot describe to anyone - not to her mother and certainly not to Sexton, whose unhappiness seems to have no bounds, whose unhappiness is defined now by what he does not have, which is almost everything. He will always, in his mind, be the salesman who no longer has anything to sell. A man who longs for the open road but who cannot ever take it. Whereas Honora, oddly, now has more purpose than she ever did before. She is a dutiful wife who tends to her husband in spite of his weaknesses. She is a woman with ingenuity. She is a woman without illusions. She is a woman who, above all, is too busy trying to make a go of it to fret about her marriage.Anita Shreve Not Feeling Sayings By Anita Shreve: And yet. And yet.

For thousands of years, it had been nature
and its supposed creator
that had had a monopoly on awe. It had been the icecaps, the deserts, the volcanoes and the glaciers that had given us a sense of finitude and limitation and had elicited a feeling in which fear and respect coagulated into a strangely pleasing feeling of humility, a feeling which the philosophers of the eighteenth century had famously termed the sublime.
But then had come a transformation to which we were still the heirs ... Over the course of the nineteenth century, the dominant catalyst for that feeling of the sublime had ceased to be nature. We were now deep in the era of the technological sublime, when awe could most powerfully be invoked not by forests or icebergs but by supercomputers, rockets and particle accelerators. We were now almost exclusively amazed by ourselves.

Happiness is corny. It is a word you do not find in Dorland's medical dictionary. When people are feeling tops, really at peace with themselves and others, they are not happy. In the medical sense, in that condition they are thought of not as happy, they are "euphoric," which, loosely translated, means slap-happy.Paul De Kruif Not Feeling Sayings By Paul De Kruif: Happiness is corny.

Paul Tillich, a theologian who grew up in Weimar Germany, similarly explained the rise of Nazism as a response to anxiety. "First of all a feeling of fear or, more exactly, of indefinite anxiety was prevailing," he writes of 1930s Germany. "Not only the economic and political, but also the cultural and religious, security seemed to be lost. There was nothing on which one could build; everything was without foundation. A catastrophic breakdown was expected every moment. Consequently, a longing for security was growing in everybody. A freedom that leads to fear and anxiety has lost its value; better authority with security than freedom with fear.Scott Stossel Not Feeling Sayings By Scott Stossel: Paul Tillich, a theologian who grew up in Weimar Germany, similarly explained the rise of
He had surrendered to it, on a few rare occasions through the years, with women he had thought he liked. He had been left feeling an angry emptiness - because he had sought an act of triumph, though he had not known of what nature, but the response he received was only a woman's acceptance of a casual pleasure, and he knew too clearly that what he had won had no meaning. He was left, not with a sense of attainment, but with a sense of his own degradation. He grew to hate his desire. He fought it. He came to believe the doctrine that this desire was wholly physical, a desire, not of consciousness, but of matter, and he rebelled against the thought that his flesh could be free to choose and that its choice was impervious to the will of his mind.Ayn Rand Not Feeling Sayings By Ayn Rand: He had surrendered to it, on a few rare occasions through the years, with women
