Feelings are the conscious subjective experiences of emotion.


  • But, spite of all the criticising elves,
    Those who would make us feel, must feel themselves.
  • Feeling is deep and still; and the word that floats on the surface
    Is as the tossing buoy, that betrays where the anchor is hidden.
  • For there are moments in life, when the heart is so full of emotion,
    That if by chance it be shaken, or into its depths like a pebble
    Drops some careless word, it overflows, and its secret,
    Spilt on the ground like water, can never be gathered together.
  • Some feelings are to mortals given,
    With less of earth in them than heaven.
    • Walter Scott, Lady of the Lake (1810), Canto II, Stanza 22.
