 emo·tion /ɪˈmoʃən/ 名詞
 情緒,感情,激動

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 E·mo·tion n.  A moving of the mind or soul; excitement of the feelings, whether pleasing or painful; disturbance or agitation of mind caused by a specific exciting cause and manifested by some sensible effect on the body.
    How different the emotions between departure and return!   --W. Irving.
    Some vague emotion of delight.   --Tennyson.
 Syn: -- Feeling; agitation; tremor; trepidation; perturbation; passion; excitement.
 Usage: Emotion, Feeling, Agitation. Feeling is the weaker term, and may be of the body or the mind. Emotion is of the mind alone, being the excited action of some inward susceptibility or feeling; as, an emotion of pity, terror, etc.  Agitation may be bodily or mental, and usually arises in the latter case from a vehement struggle between contending desires or emotions. See Passion. Agitations have but one character, viz., that of violence; emotions vary with the objects that awaken them. There are emotions either of tenderness or anger, either gentle or strong, either painful or pleasing.” --Crabb.
