I think that, to date, one of the most influential statements I've heard has come from Neil Gaiman when he speaks of emotion and how the reader should be left to feel it, not be told what to feel (show, don't tell):
"And if I leave you crying because I just killed a unicorn, I'm not going to tell you how sad the death of the unicorn was. I'm going to kill that unicorn... and I'm going to break your heart." - Neil Gaiman.
