Emotional

Famous quotes containing the word emotional:

    Countries are either mothers or fathers, and engender the emotional bristle secretly reserved for either sire.
    Edna O’Brien (b. c. 1932)

    A system of morality which is based on relative emotional values is a mere illusion, a thoroughly vulgar conception which has nothing sound in it and nothing true.
    Socrates (469–399 B.C.)

    Abused as we abuse it at present, dramatic art is in no sense cathartic; it is merely a form of emotional masturbation.... It is the rarest thing to find a player who has not had his character affected for the worse by the practice of his profession. Nobody can make a habit of self-exhibition, nobody can exploit his personality for the sake of exercising a kind of hypnotic power over others, and remain untouched by the process.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
