Quote of the Day: Charlotte Bronte
“Better to be without logic than without feeling” (Charlotte Bronte).
Today I thought I would post a quote that focused around knowledge and emotion. Bronte makes an interesting statement saying that she would rather have emotion than knowledge. Her most known book is of course Jane Eyrewhich focuses around love. However, Jane was also educated so she had logic. It was difficult for me to decide what I would rather give up, logic or emotion. In reality, I would like to have elements of both, but if I had to choose between the two I would also want feeling over logic. I feel the world would be a cruel place if a person had all the knowledge in the world but could not understand kindness, happiness
and other emotions. I feel knowledge is important, but I feel as an English major especially my emotions influence my writing.
What do you think? Would you rather have logic or feeling?
