Hi. Would you paraphrase the following quotation. I find it difficult to understand.

A feeling bears on itself the scars of its birth; it recollects as a

subjective

emotion its struggle for existence;

it retains the impress of what might have been, but is not.

"Alfred North Whitehead"

Thanks

Interesting, but not easy.

When you have a feeling, you remember what caused you to have that feeling.

And you remember what it felt like not to have that feeling.

And you think about how you would feel now if you had not had that feeling.
