Research has found that emotions — both upbeat ones like enthusiasm and joy, and negative ones like sadness, fear and anger — are easily passed from person to person, often without either party’s realizing it.

If you’re the receiver, you may not know what exactly happened, just that you feel differently after the encounter than you did before. –excerpt from “That Look — It’s Catching,” Washington Post May 2006
“You can use your life in a very useful and intelligent way. You can very well transform that negative energy into a positive energy that empowers you and makes life meaningful.” –Thich Nhat Hanh
