What is the difference between the following three sentences:
This is my slightly jaded take on these statements.
(1) I feel like doing something great. You can be great any time you want, but today, you are in the mood to do something great.
(2) I would like to do something great. You would enjoy doing something great, but it is unlikely that you ever will.
(3) I want to do something great. You have a strong desire to do something great. Perhaps your ambition or hard work will allow you to do something great.
Thanks in advance!
Oh really? Any chance it might be an AE/BE issue?(3) is much stronger - it sounds as if there is a major tantrum on the way if pizza is not provided.
You are describing your emotional state at the moment. It doesn't mean you intend to do anything about it."feel like doing something" means you' ll take action this very minute
