"But it ain't our feelings we have to steer by through life--no, no, we'd make shipwreck mighty often if we did that. There's only the one safe compass and we've got to set our course by that--what it's right to do." ~ L M Montgomery (Anne’s House of Dreams XXX)


does it mean you should't let small things upset you?? Don't really understand it!

Well, here's my take on it. You should do the right thing, even if your emotions say otherwise.

Say, for example, you had a sick pet, and the vet said he wasn't going to get any better, was in pain and needed to be put to sleep. Your emotions might say no, you want to take the pet back home with you because you love it.

But the right thing would be to let the vet put the animal to sleep so it wouldn't suffer.

So, he's saying if you let your feelings or emotions run your life, you'll make a lot of bad decisions. You should use your sense of what's right instead.

Of course, that's just my interpretation. Others may have a better one.

I agree too. It's sometimes better to listen to your head instead of your heart.
