Maybe Baby

Maybe, baby, the promised land was there and I missed it. 
Look at it glittering in the light. But the truth is I am inventing 
the maybe. 
I can only make the choices I make, 
so why torture myself with what I might have done, 
when all I can handle is what I have done.
The Maybe Islands are hostile to human life."
— Jeanette Winterson

I think we need more emotion, not less. 
But I think, too, that we need to educate people in how to feel. 
Emotionalism is not the same as emotion. 
We cannot cut out emotion - in the economy of the human body, 
it is the limbic, not the neural, highway that takes precedence. 
We are not robots...but we act as though all our problems 
would be solved if only we had no emotions
to cloud our judgement."
— Jeanette Winterson
