‘Emotion is so crucial to effective thought, both in making wise decisions and in simply allowing us to think clearly’ and ‘that is why when we are emotionally upset and we say we just can’t think straight’- and why continual emotional distress can create deficits in child’s intellectual abilities, crippling the capacity to learn’.

Daniel Goleman, 1995. Emotional Intelligence. New York:  Bantam  Books. Page 30
