    Re: feelings!!!

    I think that would be very subjective- is despair worse than grief?

    Re: feelings!!!

    There are levels, but I don't think they can be structured in an ordered sequence- there are many types, like terror and despair, but who is to say which is worse?

    Yes, we can't find a relation between terror and despair, for they convey two types of feelings as fear and hopelessness respectively. How about to pick one type and giving an ordered sequence of it as in happiness-sorrow.

    How about you listing them as you think they might be sequenced.

    Actually, that's the problem I find doing that made me ask if it were possible. I think it is, but I'm not quite familiar of the modifiers used with feelings but simple ones only, so if you could me with this, thank you very much.

    with happiness, I know that one could be happy that's all and that bliss according to my dictionary is the highest level of happiness. Well, that's all!!

    Re: feelings!!!

    It is because you are finding it difficult that I suggest you try to do it. Even if it's wrong, you will be thinking it through. Give it a go!
