The Irrationality of Emotion – Thinking vs Feeling

In All, Happiness by Eddie Pinero

When logic points right, emotion points left. When the brain screams, “Don’t,” the heart screams, “Do.” These two rivals live on opposite ends of life’s spectrum, refusing to coexist and fighting for contradictory outcomes.

Can the brain effectively influence the heart? Perhaps. The same way that a road sign attempts to guide a weary traveler; highlighting the most effective route, but unable to guarantee true satisfaction with the destination. It will always be difficult to follow the straight and narrow when life’s greatest adventures are off trail.
