An emotion is only an emotion. It’s just a small part of your whole being. You are much more than your emotion. An emotion comes, stays for a while, and goes away, just like a storm. If you’re aware of that, you won’t be afraid of your emotions. - Thich Nhat Hanh
Emotions are not tools of cognition. They tell you nothing about the nature of reality. - Dave Galanter
Emotions are the colours of the soul. - WM. Paul Young
Emotions are the lowest form of consciousness. Emotional actions are the most contracted, narrowing, dangerous form of behaviour. - Timothy Leary
Emotions can keep you ill. When the brain warns of danger, emotion leaps into action; blood pressure increases, adrenaline flows into the blood stream, muscles tense. When emergency passes, the emotions let up and we relax. But when the danger does not go away ... the emotions keep pouring out distress signals which may ultimately manifest themselves physically. - Blake Clark
Emotions talked to you before you had words, so listen to them ... they are often more honest than the mind's remarkable ability to self-deceive. - WM. Paul Young

This is the greatest paradox: the emotions cannot be trusted; yet it is the emotions that tell us the greatest truths. - Don Herold
We become our own enemy when we are thrown out of balance by anger, hatred, grief or any other intense emotion. We are for the time being obsessed by something alien. - Paramanada
Willpower is a myth. The problem with trying to use willpower to achieve and sustain a behavioural change is that it is fuelled by emotion. And as we all know, our emotions are, at best, fickle. They come and go. When your emotions start running down – and they will – even your best-laid plans will fall flat. - Philip C. McGraw
