2 Definition(s) from various sources:

An emotion is a state of deep feeling, an "inward stirring" which can act as a motivation for action. Emotions are often associated with the instincts, the inborn tendencies to act in specific ways in specific situations.

Human beings are conditioned to a very great extent by their emotions, by their likes and dislikes. Too often their emotions are biased by self interest and egotism, even to the extent that they overwhelm sense and reason, compelling us to act in ways that, in saner moments, we regard with dismay.
