If you feel something, it’s true

They have the capacity to love, but it’s too much time and trouble, so they just ignore it. It’s all bottled up. We’re in a society that hates emotions. They are rejected as being anti-intellectual, anti-political, anti-everything. We’re animals with brains.
People all over the world have inherited the disease firstly of feeling that money is the answer to their life’s problems and secondly that intellectualism is an answer to their problems.
We need to stop intellectualizing so much and rely on what we feel. If you feel something, it’s true. The only truth you can really know is something emotional that you feel. When we lose our instincts for truth, we are nothing.”

John Cassavetes
