Forces Of Emotion

Human history is not the product of the wise direction of human reason, but is shaped by the forces of emotion -- our dreams, our pride, our greed, our fears, and our desire for revenge.

-- Lin Yutang (1895 - 1976), Chinese writer and translator, Confucius Saw Nancy and Essays about Nothing (1936), p. 95
