: : What does it mean to "put a high price on one's feelings"? I first heard this phrase in the movie 'First Knight' w/ Sean Connery and Julia Ormond and I always wondered just what exactly it meant.

: To "put a high price on" anything means just what it sounds like - to value it so much that you will only sell it for a high price. (VSD)

Well an acquaintance was planning on quitting a job because his feelings were hurt. That is putting a high price on feelings. I talked him out of it.
