4. "When the voice of your friend or the page of your book sinks into democratic equality with the pattern of the wallpaper, the feel of your clothes, your memory of last night, and the noises from the road, you are falling asleep. The highly selective consciousness enjoyed by fully alert men, with all its builded sentiments and consecrated ideals, has as much to be called real as the drowsy chaos, and more."
Author: C.S. Lewis
5. "Arraigned at my own bar, Memory having given her evidence of the hopes, wishes, sentiments I had been cherishing since last night-- of the general state of mind which I have indulged for nearly a fortnight past; Reason having come forward and told in her own quiet way , a plain, unvarnished tale, showing how I had rejected the real, and rabidly devoured the ideal;-- I pronounced judgment to this effect:-- That a greater fool than Jane Eyre had never breathed the breath of life: that a more fantastic idiot had never surfeited herself on sweet lies, and swallowed the poison as if it were nectar."

10. "Nothing appears more surprising to those who consider human affairs with a philosophical eye than the easiness with which the many are governed by the few, and the implicit submission with which men resign their own sentiments and passions to those of their rulers. When we enquire by what means this wonder is effected, we shall find, that, as force is always on the side of the governed, the governors have nothing to support them but opinion. It is therefore, on opinion only that government is founded, and this maxim extends to the most despotic and most military governments, as well as to the most free and most popular. The soldan of Egypt, or the emperor of Rome, might drive his harmless subjects, like brute beasts, against their sentiments and inclination. But he must at least have led his mamalukes, or prætorian bands, like men, by their opinion."
Author: David Hume
11. "Je ne connais rien de plus vivant que l'envie, on dira ce qu'on voudra, mais il n'y a rien de plus vivant que quand on a le désir qui frétille, que quand on désire à trépigner sur place, que quand on n'en peut plus de se palper les corps, ou même que quand on n'en peut juste plus d'être avec quelqu'un, qu'on attendait ça depuis longtemps, et que ce moment-là, rien au monde ne pourra l'abîmer. Alors les sentiments, le feeling, d'accord, m'enfin, c'est quand même en dessous, les trucs en commun, les esprits qui se rencontrent, les signaux lumineux, tout ça, oui, ça compte, d'accord, je ne dis pas, mais s'il n'y a pas l'envie au-dessus de ça, c'est mou, c'est fade."
Author: David Thomas
12. "Such, I have long known, is the paradoxical law of all sentiments having terror as a basis."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
13. "In moments of exaltation one expressed sentiments that outstripped one's spiritual capabilities by a vast span; and she knew well that unless God is sought for Himself alone, with a selflessness of which she was at present incapable, He is not to be found."
Author: Elizabeth Goudge
14. "Isolation, for him, had become a basic sine qua non for existence and loneliness, his sole companion like a perfectly faithful twin. He was someone for whom even happiness would cry for, mourning the death of his sentiments and murdering the existence of his soul."
Author: Faraaz Kazi
15. "I guess I haven't mentioned it before but I was, I am and I think I might always remain in love with you," he said with such passion that I froze in surprise. He went on. "And just so you know, I am prepared to fight for you, regardless of whether or not you share my sentiments."

Author: Honoré De Balzac
20. "Dans la vie morale, aussi bien que dans la vie physique, il existe une aspiration et une respiration; l'âme a besoin d'absorber les sentiments d'une autre âme, de se les assimiler pour les lui restituer plus riches. Sans ce beau phénomène humain, point de vie au cœur; l'air lui manque alors, il souffre et dépérit."
Author: Honoré De Balzac

31. "And more even than the painter, the writer, in order to achieve volume and substance, in order to attain to generality and, so far as literature can, to reality, needs to have seen many churches in order to paint one church and for the portrayal of a single sentiment requires many individuals. For if art is long and life is short, we may on the other hand say that, if inspiration is short, the sentiments which it has to portray are not of much longer duration. It is our passions which draw the outline of our books, the ensuing intervals of repose which write them."
Author: Marcel Proust
32. "There are in our life any number of women whom we have never wished to see again, and who have quite naturally responded to our in no way calculated silence with a silence as profound. Only in their case as we never loved them, we have never counted the years spent apart from them, and this instance, which would invalidate our whole argument, we are inclined to forget when we are considering the healing effect of isolation, just as people who believe in presentiments forget all the occasions on which their own have not ‘come true."
Author: Marcel Proust

It wouldn't though, not until he put his family before his career."I never thought our love story had an end," Luke said faintly.Clicking the door shut, I slid down the wooden frame into a heap on the floor. Sobs racked my body as I echoed the same sentiments in my head. Our love story shouldn't have had an end. Only a beginning."

Author: Radha Mitchell
42. "I despise my own past and that of others. I despise resignation, patience, professional heroism and all the obligatory sentiments. I also despise the decorative arts, folklore, advertising, radio announcers' voices, aerodynamics, the Boy Scouts, the smell of naphtha, the news, and drunks.I like subversive humor, freckles, women's knees and long hair, the laughter of playing children, and a girl running down the street.I hope for vibrant love, the impossible, the chimerical.I dread knowing precisely my own limitations."

45. "Altruism, compassion, empathy, love, conscience, the sense of justice—all of these things, the things that hold society together, the things that allow our species to think so highly of itself, can now confidently be said to have a firm genetic basis. That's the good news. The bad news is that, although these things are in some ways blessings for humanity as a whole, they didn't evolve for the "good of the species" and aren't reliably employed to that end. Quite the contrary: it is now clearer than ever how (and precisely why) the moral sentiments are used with brutal flexibility, switched on and off in keeping with self-interest; and how naturally oblivious we often are to this switching. In the new view, human beings are a species splendid in their array of moral equipment, tragic in their propensity to misuse it, and pathetic in their constitutional ignorance of the misuse. The title of this book is not wholly without irony."
Author: Robert Wright

50. "Can we be sure that they are incapable of the feelings or sentiments that are believed to place them on a lower scale than humans? Do we deny sensitivity to all of the so-called lower orders to blunt, protect, and, ultimately, deny our own? We will see that bees can grieve over teh loss of a queen, sound war cries or hum with contentment; they can be angry, docile, ferocious, playful, aggressive, appear happy, or utter pitiful sounds of distress. are these not emotions akin to ours, merely expressed differently?"
Author: William Longgood
