“Let’s not forget that the little emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without realizing it.”

Helen Keller

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart”

Leslie Greenberg

“If anyone had told me the depth of emotion, especially difficult emotions, I would experience in parenting, I would have thought the person greatly prone to exaggeration. Sure, I expected to feel love, joy, happiness, excitement, worry, and frustration, but I did not expect to be pushed to the farthest limits of my experience. In addition to the feelings I expected, I have felt extreme helplessness, rage, pride, fear, anxiety, and worry beyond anything I had ever felt before. I have also felt sadness, a deeper and more poignant sadness than I could have imagined: sadness at my children’s hurts that I could not heal; at their disappointments and failures that I could not prevent; and at their leaving, which I could not stop, nor wished to. I needed every ounce of emotional intelligence I had to negotiate the most challenging of life’s tasks: parenting.”

Charlie Chaplin

“From the study of the science behind emotions, we know that emotion is the power source and control center of the brain. But ask yourself, are you at the wheel of this powerful machine? Or are you simply just a passenger? We’ve often been taught to avoid, manage, and even fear our own and others’ emotions, especially at work or in environments outside our closest relationships. But neuroscience tell us that our emotions, when harnessed, are the most effective guidance system for our decisions. By understanding how to use this system, you can become fluent in your Emotion Brain and better navigate interpersonal conflict challenges.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“One ought to hold on to one’s heart; for if one lets it go, one soon loses control of the head too.”

Saba Thair

“Your emotions make you human. Even the unpleasant ones have a purpose. Don’t lock them away. If you ignore them, they just get louder and angrier.”

Nicholas Sparks

“The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it…”

Anne Frank

“But feelings can’t be ignored, no matter how unjust or ungrateful they seem.”

Charlotte Brontë  (Jane Eyre)

“Crying does not indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive.”

Mitch Albom

“In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did and why you no longer need to feel it.”
