Definition of a Feeling

It is part of the definition of a feeling that it is born in us without our will, often against our will. As soon as we want to feel (decide to feel …), feeling is no longer feeling but an imitation of feeling, a show of feeling. This is commonly called hysteria. That’s why homo sentimentalis (a person who has raised feeling to value) is in reality identical to homo hystericus.
