FEELINGS Quotes

"Children need systems that are inclusive and driven by them, systems that will enable them to respond to their feelings and needs at any time."
-- Jeroo Billimoria

* One of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing that we as individuals can make a difference. Ending hunger in America is a goal that is literally within our grasp.
-- Jeff Bridges

* 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

There is a boundary to men's passions when they act from feelings; but none when they are under the influence of imagination.
-- Edmund Burke

Family is the first social unit for developing the qualities of the heart. A true family grows and moves through life together, inseparable in the heart. Whether a biological family or an extended family of people attracted to each other based on heart resonance and mutual support, the word "family" implies warmth, a place where the core feelings of the heart are nurtured. Family values represent the core values and guidelines that parents and family members hold in high regard for the well-being of the family. Sincere family feelings are core heart feelings. They are the basis for true family values. While we have differences, we remain "family" by virtue of our heart connection. Family provides necessary security and support, and acts as a buffer against external problems. A family made up of secure people generates a magnetic power that can get things done. They are the hope for real security in a stressful world.
-- Doc Childre and Howard Martin, The HeartMath Solution

* Most of what we take as being important is not material, whether it's music or feelings or love. They're things we can't really see or touch. They're not material, but they're vitally important to us.
-- Judy Collins

* Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital...” - The Dalai Lama

The freedom to be at peace in our own skins - that’s what forgiveness allows. We relinquish this freedom when we hold onto anger and resentment. Enormous amounts of energy are wasted when we hold back our love, hold onto hate, and harbor acrimonious feelings. The only remedy is letting go, and being willing to forgive.
-- Naomi Drew

By banishing doubt and trusting your intuitive feelings, you clear a space for the power of intention to flow through.
- Wayne Dyer

A human being is a part of the whole, called by us, "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security -- Albert Einstein

When faced with world problems – like hunger, overpopulation, nuclear weapons, the arms trade – you may be among those who are overwhelmed by a feeling of “Help! What on earth can I, just one person, do about this?” Take heart. That’s a sane response. It’s the basis for a whole new attitude to world problems, where change at the level of the individual is more and more recognised as essential to change in huge world systems.
-- Scilla Elworthy

"Forgiving is an act of mercy toward an offender. We are no longer controlled by angry feelings toward this person."
-- Robert D. Enright

* “I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.”
-- Mohandas K. Gandhi

 

* “I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.”
-- Mohandas K. Gandhi

I have deep feelings for the welfare and comfort of others.
-- DeForest Kelley

We're finally learning that it is not an either-or situation ... Feelings and learning and emotion are all very integral to each other."
~ Linda Lantieri

* "Let us at all times remember that all American citizens are brothers of a common country, and should dwell together in bonds of fraternal feeling."
-- Abraham Lincoln

“What is the quality of your intent? Certain people have a way of saying things that shake us at the core. Even when the words do not seem harsh or offensive, the impact is shattering. What we could be experiencing is the intent behind the words. When we intend to do good, we do. When we intend to do harm, it happens. What each of us must come to realize is that our intent always comes through. We cannot sugarcoat the feelings in our heart of hearts. The emotion is the energy that motivates. We cannot ignore what we really want to create. We should be honest and do it the way we feel it. What we owe to ourselves and everyone around is to examine the reasons of our true intent. My intent will be evident in the results.”
-- Thurgood Marshall

Self-actualizing people have a deep feeling of identification, sympathy, and affection for human beings in general. They feel kinship and connection, as if all people were members of a single family.
--Abraham Maslow

* "... plain, old, simple kindness: to other people, to your family. Love for other people. I think that’s another very important part of morality, being genuinely compassionate and concerned about the feelings and well being of other people, especially those that depend on you directly."
-- George McGovern

"You and only you are in charge of your feelings."
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

"You and only you are in charge of your feelings."
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

"You are uniquely you.
It is okay for you to be who you are. It is certainly okay for you to be yourself. A living, breathing human being with feelings." "
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

"Be willing to bring bad feelings to the light of day. Expose them for what they are. They are only feelings after all."
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

"One you get a handle on your feelings, life becomes much easier. Remember you don't have to keep on doing the old same-o, same-o bad feelings."
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

"Resisting feeling your emotions is like feeding them and then bottling them up. Emotions can grow fatter and fatter if they aren’t let out in safe ways. If you aren’t aware of your feelings, you can act them out in harmful ways. Or you can act them in and become depressed."
-- Lynne Namka (AngriesOut.com)

"I feel closer to my country than ever. There is no longer a feeling of lonesome isolation. Instead--peace. I return without fearing prejudice that once bothered me . . . for I know that people practice cruel bigotry in their ignorance, not maliciously"
-- Paul Robeson

* Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent. -- Eleanor Roosevelt

* "It seems to me of great importance to teach children respect for life. Towards this end, experiments on living animals in classrooms should be stopped. To encourage cruelty in the name of science can only destroy the finer emotions of affection and sympathy, and breed an unfeeling callousness in the young towards suffering in all living creatures."
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

* When we hear the other person's feelings and needs, we recognize our common humanity.
-- Marshall Rosenberg

Whatever system of governance is eventually adopted, it is important that it carries the people with it. We need to convey the message that safeguarding our common property, humankind, will require developing in each of us a new loyalty: a loyalty to mankind. It calls for the nurturing of a feeling of belonging to the human race. We have to become world citizens.
-- Joseph Rotblat

“No man can be a good teacher unless he has feelings of warm affection toward his pupils and a genuine desire to impart to them what he believes to be of value.” -- Bertrand Russell

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.
-- Virginia Satir

Learning to let things go and forgive isn't always easy, but when we truly forgive, it helps foster better health, better relationships, a deeper sense of purpose and self worth and a feeling of connection to others. -- Robert Alan Silverstein

Conflicts are a normal part of life; how we deal with them can make a big difference. Often when people resolve conflicts, one person ends up a winner, and one loses out. This may solve the problem for the moment, but resentment and bad feelings can cause more problems later. Another way to look at conflicts is to try to find a WIN-WIN solution, a compromise in which both sides can benefit. In this way, conflicts are turned into opportunities to grow and make things better. This approach is the cornerstone of "conflict resolution" - an important tool for bringing peace into our personal lives, our communities and to our world.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

I don't have any understanding of a human being who doesn't respect the beauty of life and that goes for all creatures that have thoughts, feelings and needs.
-- Alicia Silverstone

"There is much suffering in the world - physical, material, mental. The suffering of some can be blamed on the greed of others. The material and physical suffering is suffering from hunger, from homelessness, from all kinds of diseases. But the greatest suffering is being lonely, feeling unloved, having no one. I have come more and more to realize that it is being unwanted that is the worst disease that any human being can ever experience."
-- Mother Teresa

"The more I read and the more I talked to other parents of children with disabilities and normal children, the more I found that feelings and emotions about children are very much the same in all families. The accident of illness or disability serves only to intensify feelings and emotions, not to change them."
-- Judith Weatherly
