A "moving" story is one that makes you feel strong emotions. The emotions that are associated with feeling "moved" are:
- gratitude (being thankful)
Another way to describe it is that a "moving" story, photograph, song, or movie makes you feel empathetic to other people's feelings. It makes you imagine other people's pain, happiness, and dreams.
Use "moving" in these forms:
- (something) is so moving
What did you think of it? I thought it was so moving!
- a moving (something)
"Adagio for Strings" is such a moving piece of music.
- (someone) is (adverb) moved by (something)
I'm deeply moved by your generosity.
