Forgive me, that I manage badly, Manage badly but live gloriously, That I leave traces of myself in my songs, That I appeared to you in waking dreams. ~ Jeanette Winterson

For my part, I think we need more emotion, not less. But I think, too, that we need to educate people in how to feel. Emotionalism is not the same as emotion. We cannot cut out emotion; in the economy of the human body, it is the limbic, not the neural highway that takes precedence. We are not robots… but we act as though all our problems would be solved if only we had no emotions to cloud our judgement.
