Yes, I love those things, too.  Whether sentiment, common love and
tenderness are only common emotions not in the upper planes of
spirit-matter or not, I believe they are valuable tools for helping one
develop wisdom and compassion, which is Buddhi-Manas.  A person who
cannot even start with such sensitivity and under the delusion that
insensitivity is just pure logic and manas, have a much longer way to go
toward compassion, much less wisdom.
