#767 Intellect and emotions

I have seen too much not to know that the impression of a woman may be more valuable than the conclusion of an analytical reasoner. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle

A woman's life is a history of the affections. ~ Washington Irving

A woman's life revolves in curves of emotions. It is upon lines of intellect that a man's life progresses. ~ Oscar Wilde

There is in every true woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.  ~ Washington Irving

Whatever a woman's reason may say, her feelings tell her the truth.  ~ Stefan Zweig

- How can you try to cultivate a balance between the two?
