Quote by WILLIAM JAMES - Deepstash
WILLIAM JAMES

“Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not. Therefore, the ideal and conscious way to cheerfulness - when you have lost it - is to sit calmly and act and speak as if you were already cheerful.”
