Thought Of The Day

Ask as many people as we wish to. Make as many emphatic statements as we like. None of this will make us any wiser. We try to understand an emotion with our intellect. This is like trying to taste an orange by holding it up to our ear. We are using the wrong tool for the job. Can we conclude that the orange has no taste, just because our ear cannot hear it? Well then, how can we decide that our feeling has no relevance, just because our inner computer cannot comfortably explain it? We need to honour and respect our deepest emotions.
