“I remember when your name was just another name that rolled without thought off my tongue.

Now, I can’t look at your name without an abundance of sentiment attached to each letter.

Your name, which I played with so carelessly, so easily, has somehow become sacred to my lips.

A name I won’t throw around lightheartedly or repeat without deep thought.

And if ever I speak of you, I use the English language to describe who you were to me. You are nameless, because those letters grouped together in that familiar form….. carries too much meaning for my capricious heart.”
Jamie Weise

Edward Abbey

Edward Abbey

Christopher Isherwood, A Single Man

David Hume
“All sentiment is right; because sentiment has a reference to nothing beyond itself, and is always real, wherever a man is conscious of it. But all determinations of the understanding are not right; because they have a reference to something beyond themselves, to wit, real matter of fact; and are not always conformable to that standard.”
David Hume, Of the Standard of Taste and Other Essays

D.H. Lawrence
“What liars poets and everybody were! They made one think one wanted sentiment. When what one supremely wanted was this piercing, consuming, rather awful sensuality.”
D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover

Edward Abbey
“What we need now are heroes and heroines, about a million of them, one brave deed is worth a thousand books. Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.”
Edward Abbey

Staceyann Chin

Ian Fleming
“For her, sex was nothing more than an itch. And this phsychological and physiological neutrality of hers at once relieved her of so many human emotions and sentiments and desires. Sexual neutrality was the essence of coldness in an individual. It was a great and wonderful thing to be born with.”
Ian Fleming, From Russia With Love

Leslie Jamison
“Bad movies and bad writing and easy cliches still manage to make us feel things toward each other. Part of me is disgusted by this. Part of me celebrates it.”
Leslie Jamison, The Empathy Exams

Orson Scott Card
“Eko brushed a tear from her eye, and Immo jeered at her, but father held up a hand. "Never mock a tender heart," he said.”

“Suenos. Dulces Suenos.
He must be painting upstairs.
I can feel it.
I remember when his father was just a baby and I called her Mama for the first time and she became Mama for all of us; Mama de la casa and his father would wake up in the middle of the night and scream in his crib and nothing would make him stop, nada, and Mama would get so exhausted she would turn her back to me and cry in her pillow.
I would smooth her hair-it was black, Basilio, as black as an olive-and I would turn on the radio (electricity, Basilio, in the middle of the night), to maybe calm the baby and listen to something besides the screaming.
Mama liked the radio, Basilio, and we listened while your father cried-cantante negra, cantante de almas azules-and it made us feel a little better, helped us make it through.
I had to get up early to catch the streetcar to the shipyard, but when the crying finally stopped sometimes the sun would be ready to pop and Mama's breathing would slow down and her shoulders would move like gentle waves, sleeping but still listening, like I can hear her now on this good bed, and Basilio-Mira, hombre, I will not tell you this again-if I moved very close and kissed her shoulders, she would turn to face me and we would have to be quiet Basilio, under the music, very, very quiet....
So this I want to know, Basilio.
This, if you want to live on Macon Street for another minute.
Can you paint an apple baked soft in the oven, an apple filled with cinnamon and raisins?
Can you paint such a woman?
Are you good enough yet with those brushes so that she will step out of your pictures to turn on the radio in the middle of the night?
Will she visit an old man on his death bed?
If you cannot do that, Basilio, there is no need for you to live here anymore.”
Rafael Alvarez

Leigh Bardugo
“Nice to be back, Kaz.

Good to have you back, Wraith.”
Leigh Bardugo, Crooked Kingdom

Vladimir Nabokov
“- A sentyment staje się uciążliwy. W końcu jest coś nazbyt fizycznego w próbie zachowania cząstki dzieciństwa na swoim mostku.
- Nie pan pierwszy sprowadza wiarę do zmysłu dotyku.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Pnin

Traci Chee
“Sentiment makes fools of us all.”

Richelle E. Goodrich
“While observing a breeze dance over a patch of dandelions that had gone to seed, I realized how easily delicate things succumbed to the wind. I became suddenly aware that my emotions are affected in the same way by every minor gust of sentiment.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold: Quotes, Poetry, & Motivations for Every Day of the Year

“- Dragul meu, țin să-ți mărturisesc că atunci când nu ești lângă mine, am cel mai frumos sentiment din lume!
- Draga mea... cum așa?!
- Păi, nu este dorul cel mai frumos sentiment din lume?”
Ana Truța

“I cannot do anything in life, I am inferior and insufficient' is a sentiment more deadly than diseases like Aids and Cancer; and it is the 'HanumanChalisa' that wipes out this sentiment.”
Dr. Aniruddha D. Joshi, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh - A peerless organization in the world

“At the same time, even as "feeling" is distrusted in favour of "rationality", common usage reflects the opposite recognition: that most important thinking is imbued with feeling. The word "feel", as a near synonym for "think", suggests, half subliminally, the mixture of the affective and the conceptual in what we call "thought". Feeling seems an obscure antecedent to, and therefore perhaps a necessary part of, conceptualization; as if thought has an affective component, or feeling is a form of understanding.”
Bell, Michael

Dumitru Constantin Dulcan
“Este "umbra" eului nostru atemporal, care nu trăieşte în acord cu simbolul său primordial, cu arhetipul său cosmic. Este sentimentul amar al neîmplinirii ființei interioare.”
Dumitru Constantin Dulcan, Inteligenţa materiei

“Fieldworkers must build a community of sentiment, with local and long-distance members, that opposes the competitive individualism of academia. The lone scholar is a sociological impossibility. Our “individual” works rely on language, literatures, and feedback from colleagues (Becker, 1986).”
Sherryl Kleinman, Emotions and Fieldwork

Isabel Allende
“En estos meses me he ido pelando como una cebolla, velo a velo,, cambiando, ya no soy la misma mujer, mi hija me ha dado la oportunidad de mirar dentro de mí y descubrir esos espacios interiores, vacíos, oscuros y extrañamente apacibles, donde nunca antes había explorado. Son lugares sagrados y para llegar a ellos debo recorrer un camino angosto y lleno de obstáculos, vencer las fieras de la imaginación que me salen al paso. Cuando el terror me paraliza, cierro los ojos y me abandono con la sensación de sumergirme en aguas revueltas, ,entre los golgpes furiosos del oleaje. p. 300”
Isabel Allende, Paula

“When you can't convince them with intellect, persuade them with sentiment.”

Jim Harrison
“By not letting places be themselves we show our contempt for them. We bury them in sentiment, then suffocate them to death in one way or another. I can ruin both the desert and the Museum of Modern Art in New York by carrying to them an insufferable load of distinctions that disallows actually seeing the flora and fauna or the paintings. Children are usually better at finding mushrooms and arrowheads because they are either ignorant of or unwilling to carry the load.”
Jim Harrison, Dalva

“Creating a division among people is to create control over people. If you control on the resources letting overconsumption on one side leads to hunger and death of the other! - Judy”
Abhishek Ghosh, The Paradise Conflict

“As children we got so we could tell time by the sun pretty well, and would know by the light in the room when we opened our eyes that it was seven o'clock and time to get  up for school, and later that it was almost ten and then almost noon and almost three o'clock and time to be dismissed. School ran strictly by clocks, the old Regulators that Mr. Hamburger was always fiddling with, adding and subtracting paper clips on the pendulum to achieve perfect time, but we were sensitive to light, knowing how little was available to us as winter came on, and always knew what time it was - as anyone will who leads a regular life in a familiar place. My poor great-grandpa,when his house burned down when Grandma left the bread baking in the summer kitchen oven to go visit the Berges and they built the new one facing west instead of south: they say he was confused the rest of his life and never got straightened out even when he set up his bed in the parlor ( which faced north as his former bedroom had): he lived in a twilight world for some time and then moved in his mind to the house he'd grown up in, and in the end didn't know one day from another until he died." Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil," but there's more than one kind of of shadow, and when a man loses track, it can kill him. Not even the siren could have saved my great-grandpa. He died of misdirection. "  / "Lake Wobegon Days" Garrison Keillor/ ”
