Emotion Quotes

"Beware of emotions. The emotional person is turned off sensually. His body is a churning robot. Emotions are addictive, narcotic, and stupefacient. Moods such as sorrow and joy accompany emotions. Like a junkie who has just connected, the emotional person feels good when he has scored emotionally, i.e., put someone down or been beaten down. Conscious love is not an emotion; it is the serene merging with yourself, with other people, with other forms of energy. Love cannot exist in an emotional state. Emotions are emergency alarms.....The presocial wily-animal god of emotion-locomotion resides within our nervous system, ready to pour out flight-fight endocrine juices (p97)."
— T. Leary 

"The only way to stave off boredom, in a complex domesticated primate like humankind, is to increase one's intelligence. This is not appealing to the average primate, who instead invents emotional games (soap opera and grand opera dramatics)."
- Robert Anton Wilson

"Control thy passions, lest they take vengeance on thee."

- Epictetus

"If you do not wish to be prone to anger, do not feed the habit; give it nothing which may tend to its increase."

- Epictetus
 
"If you would cure anger, do not feed it. Say to yourself: 'I used to be angry every day; then every other day; now only every third or fourth day.' When you reach thirty days offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the gods."
- Epictetus

“Romantic poetry and fiction of the last 2000 years has blinded us to the fact that emotions are a low form of jungle consciousness. Emotional actions are the most contracted, dangerous form of fanatic stupor.”
- T. Leary

Anger:

"Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were."
- Cherie Carter-Scott, "If Love Is a Game, These Are the Rules"

"When anger rises, think of the consequences."

- Confucius (551 BC - 479 BC)

"Anger makes dull men witty, but it keeps them poor."
- Elizabeth I (1533 - 1603), in Francis Bacon, Apophthegms, 1625

"Anger as soon as fed is dead 'Tis starving makes it fat."

- Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886), Poems, Second Series, 1891

"If you do not wish to be prone to anger, do not feed the habit; give it nothing which may tend to its increase."

- Epictetus (55 AD - 135 AD)

"If you would cure anger, do not feed it. Say to yourself: 'I used to be angry every day; then every other day; now only every third or fourth day.' When you reach thirty days offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the gods."

- Epictetus (55 AD - 135 AD)

"Anger is a signal, and one worth listening to."
- Harriet Lerner, The Dance of Anger, 1985

"Never forget what a man says to you when he is angry."
- Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887)

"Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life."
- Joan Lunden, in Healthy Living Magazine
