Feel, think, and believe are not interchangeable.” – George T. Arnold

”The use of feel for words like think, believe, and argue is becoming unsettlingly common. It's a cliché, and a touchy-feely one at that, reducing all cognition to sensation and emotion.” – Jack Lynch

People can feel sick or can feel the table. People DO NOT feel an opinion - they think, opine, or believe an opinion. – The Devereaux Bureau
