Quotes to help you understand and express your feelings
Did you that there is a difference between emotions and feelings? Interesting, huh? Let me break it down for you…
Emotions are something we are given at birth. Emotions are always present and there is nothing we can do about that. And then we have feelings. A feeling is something we learn in life. Feeling is a crystallization of our emotions. Another difference is that feelings can be negative and contra-productive while emotions are always positive.
I picked and compiled quotes about feelings, and also divided them in something like categories. Here we go!
