Emotions are like drinking water. you can insert a hose to your tummy and get water and survive, but it's higher knowledge to experience water itself. emotions have more within them than anything knowable.
Emotions are highly under-rated in a psychology-driven world which tends to oppose logical thinking to emotional feeling; when both go together...
Emotions come first; logic is just there to make sense of them. Without emotions there is no logic - we wouldn't even care about explain rationally something we haven't felt yet.
I love Khalil Gibran's take on emotion/reason. If we're sailing, emotions is the wind blowing and reason the rudder. Without a rudder your boat will crash on the rocks, without any wind, it won't move.
