Dorothy L. Sayers
“I imagine you come across a number of people who are disconcerted by the difference between what you do feel and what they fancy you ought to feel. It is fatal to pay the smallest attention to them.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Gaudy Night

C.S. Lewis
“For every one pupil who needs to be guarded against a weak excess of sensibility there are three who need to be awakened from the slumber of cold vulgarity. The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts. The right defence against false sentiments is to inculcate just sentiments. By starving the sensibility of our pupils we only make them easier prey to the propagandist when he comes. For famished nature will be avenged and a hard heart is no infallible protection against a soft head.”
C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

E.A. Bucchianeri
“Sweetheart, darling, dearest, it was funny to think that these endearments, which used to sound exceedingly sentimental in movies and books, now held great importance, simple but true verbal affirmations of how they felt for each other. They were words only the heart could hear and understand, words that could impart entire pentameter sonnets in their few, short syllables.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

Shannon L. Alder
“It is not a person or situation that affects your life; it is the meaning you give to that person or situation, which influences your emotions and actions. Your choice is to change the meaning you gave it or to change your response, in order to create the outcome you want.”
Shannon L. Alder

“Nostalgia não é saudade.
sim, são sinonimas, mas "sinônimo" é o mismo que "semelhante" e não "idêntico"
"Idêntico" é cem por cento "igual", enquanto que em "semelhante há pelo menos um percentual minimo de "diferente", de cualquier maneira saudade não e nostalgia.
Nostalgia é a nausea que se encontra numa paisagem. num cheiro. numa música, num vento que nos carrega para tão proximo de reviver una história, porem se esvai num relance.
Saudade é a falta que se sente do que já se foi, saudade se afina, saudade não e provocada no lance de uma sensação. Saudade e a própia sensação constante, um sentimiento abstrato quase sólido a beira do palpável.”
Juliano Ramos de Oliveira

Abhijit Naskar
“Sentiments that glorify humanity know no racial distinction.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Always try to come back to your senses when in love, because that's the moment you become almost carried away by sensuality and sentiments.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Pawan Mishra
“Matters of the heart are so incalculable!”
Pawan Mishra, Coinman: An Untold Conspiracy

Abhijit Naskar
“In the biological sense, race does not exist.”

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Creativity is not intelligence, it is the ability to do what you did not know through the use of what you know.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Amit Abraham
“Religious sentiments are many a times much above reality. All are aware of reality but blinded by faith and faith has always led to many a myths become reality".”
Amit Abraham

Kelseyleigh Reber
“My emotions are invisible, untouchable—invincible even—and their power far outweighs my own. And so it seems unfair that for all the little I can do to them, they can do so much to me.”
Kelseyleigh Reber, If I Resist

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“Strong thoughts are accompanied by great emotions”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom

Kelseyleigh Reber
“I have never known anyone to win a battle waged against his emotions. When a sentiment hoists his glimmering blade into the air, the battle is lost before it has begun.”
Kelseyleigh Reber

Llorenç Villalonga
“La intensitat dels seus sentiments era tal que pareixia comèdia. Declamava com una mala actriu. Després he vist que molts de boigs, contra el que es podria esperar, són afectats. L'observació, si va a dir ver, és de Don Toni. «Quan la crítica no governa» —deia— «tot és teatre de cassola. Mira, si no, les cartes "sinceres" que s'escriuen ets enamorats de tot el món. ¿No mos pareixia ridícules? ¿No és Ofèlia, la pobra, una cursi modèlica, com dirien a Cadis?»”
Llorenç Villalonga, Bearn o La sala de les nines

“You can repeat lies of others without hesitation
Because, you don’t have to give justification
But, saying truth you have to be fearless and courageous
Because, you have to defend your views
You can not say truth without hurting sentiments of many people”
Sammy Toora

Girdhar Joshi
“In real life, when emotions and sentiments are involved and the very continuity of life is at stake, there are no quantitative theories, linear programming, and applied mechanics available to solve those problems.”
Girdhar Joshi, Some Mistakes Have No Pardon

Gustave Flaubert
“... sentimentele slăbesc cînd le schimbi locul.../ Frédéric s’était attendu à des spasmes de joie ; mais les passions s’étiolent quand on les dépayse, et, ne retrouvant plus Mme Arnoux dans le milieu où il l’avait connue, elle lui semblait avoir perdu quelque chose, porter confusément comme une dégradation, enfin n’être pas la même. Le calme de son coeur le stupéfiait. (©BeQ)”
Gustave Flaubert, Sentimental Education

Gustave Flaubert
“Frédéric se așteptase să fie zguduit de bucurie; dar sentimentele slăbesc cînd le schimbi locul și, nemaigăsind-o pe doamna Arnoux în mediul în care o cunoscuse, îi părea că pierduse ceva, că purta în ea, nelămurit, un fel de degradare, că, în sfîrșit, nu mai era aceeași. Liniștea inimii lui îl uluia./

“Croats are not prepared for the future yet. They are still divided with the sentiments of the past.”

Abhijit Naskar
“If not as a true human, let me tell you as a Biologist, color of the skin does not define an individual’s intelligence – it does not define an individual’s ambitions - it does not define an individual’s dreams – and above all, it does not define an individual’s character.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

Abhijit Naskar
“It is character that should be the sole measure of judgement in the society of thinking humanity, and nothing short of that would do.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

Kelseyleigh Reber
“I cannot detain Love, holding him captive so that he may never break my heart. No more than I can stick Guilt in a pot so that I may boil him until all of my sins are vaporized, rising alongside the screaming steam. I cannot hold Sorrow in my arms and rock him to a fit and endless sleep. Nor can I search for Joy and effortlessly find him beneath the pink-dusted sky of late afternoon, where he waits for me with open arms.”
Kelseyleigh Reber, If I Resist

Olaotan Fawehinmi
“Taking the Right Decision in any situation only requires TWO major ingredients:
Critical Thinking and Grace.
Critical Thinking is like 'Works' and Grace is like 'Faith'. So if "Faith without Works is dead," then same, I believe, goes for Works without Faith.
Like the two sides of a coin, one without the other just won't make any sense. And if the coin ever has a third side, it will never be 'Emotions' or 'Sentiments' because they both have zero IQ.”
Olaotan Fawehinmi, The Soldier Within

Abhijit Naskar
“Call up the ever-pure, the effulgent and the ever-radiant character of true humanism in yourself and in others, and no racism shall have the power to thrive in such society even for a few seconds.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

“The philosophical study of beauty, art, and the splendor of nature nurtures a person’s fertile mind by exposing a person to the puzzling world of the beautiful, elegant, ugly, and grotesque. Human beings ability to experience sublime pleasure emanates from a variety of sensory experiences and a person’s ability to make discriminatory observations and judgment in taste and sentiment.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“The goal of all principled people is to recognize truth. Simple or complex thoughts and feelings standing alone rarely express any universal truths. Thoughts and feelings combine to create profound truths and compose extravagant falsities. Truth making exposes certain falsehoods, and lies shed light upon irrefutable truths. Art reveals the pageantry of nature along with the unmitigated grotesqueness that accompanies an earthly life. The search for truth begins with an intellectual journey into darkness whereas the search for beauty requires an imaginative act trussed with the classical beauty of Apollonian lightness. Aesthetic appreciation represents the perfect reconciliation of the sensual and rational parts of humankind’s animalistic nature. Similar to aesthetic experience – contemplation of beauty without imposition of a worldly agenda – love depends upon human sensory-emotional values, a judgement of values and sentiments.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“If we could be humble enough to submit our passions, sentiments and even weaknesses to God Almighty, he would successfully convert them to something positive that would eventually glorify Him.”
Sunday Adelaja, The Mountain of Ignorance

“[...] j'ai songé alors que ce qui est violent, ce n'est pas le temps qui passe, c'est l'effacement des sentiments et des émotions. Comme s'ils n'avaient jamais existé.”
Laurence Tardieu, Un temps fou
