A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

Paul Cezanne


There's so much toxic masculinity out there. I grew up with the notion that the more masculine you are and the less you show emotion, the more of a man you are.

Karamo Brown


Gratitude isn't a burdening emotion.

Loretta Young


Acting is not being emotional, but being able to express emotion.

Robert Quillen


A film is — or should be — more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.

Stanley Kubrick


When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.

Dale Carnegie


There's design, and there's art. Good design is total harmony. There's no better designer than nature — if you look at a branch or a leaf, it's perfect. It's all function. Art is different. It's about emotion. It's about suffering and beauty — but mostly suffering!

Diane von Furstenberg


The focus of 'Flower' is emotion and to make you feel peaceful.

Jenova Chen


I'm one of those people who has always struggled with emotions and revealing them. When my dog Orson died, I did this very male thing of 'It's just a dog and I'll just move on.' I was very slow to grasp the emotion. But Orson is the reason I started writing about dogs.

Emotion – quotes and aphorisms

Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.

Earl Nightingale

Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration.

Taylor Swift


Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.

T. S. Eliot


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost
