Laughter the Best Medicine

Quote Me

 

The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water.

Neurosis

The expectation that every neurotic phenomenon can be cured may, I suspect, be derived from the layman's belief that the neuroses are something quite unnecessary which have no right whatever to exist. Whereas in fact they are severe, constitutionally fixed illnesses, which rarely restrict themselves to only a few attacks but persist as a rule over long periods throughout life.

Normality  

What usually happens in the educational process is that the faculties are dulled, overloaded, stuffed and paralyzed so that by the time most people are mature they have lost their innate capabilities.

Gold

Gold and silver from the dead turn often into lead.

Human Nature

Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us. We are not the only experiment.

Manners

Parents are usually more careful to bestow knowledge on their children rather than virtue, the art of speaking well rather than doing well; but their manners should be of the greatest concern.

Problems

When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.

Freud

Devout believers are safeguarded in a high degree against the risk of certain neurotic illnesses; their acceptance of the universal neurosis spares them the task of constructing a personal one.

Destiny

Anatomy is destiny.

Honesty

Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.

Insanity

A man should not strive to eliminate his complexes, but to get into accord with them; they are legitimately what directs his conduct in the world.

Love

We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love, never so forlornly unhappy as when we have lost our love object or its love.

Mind

Every normal person, in fact, is only normal on the average. His ego approximates to that of the psychotic in some part or other and to a greater or lesser extent.

Procreation

It would be one of the greatest triumphs of humanity, one of the most tangible liberations from the constraints of nature to which mankind is subject, if we could succeed in raising the responsible act of procreating children to the level of a deliberate and intentional activity and in freeing it from its entanglement with the necessary satisfaction of a natural need.

Self-discovery

Look into the depths of your own soul and learn first to know yourself, then you will understand why this illness was bound to come upon you and perhaps you will thenceforth avoid falling ill.

Society

It is always possible to bind together a considerable number of people in love, so long as there are other people left over to receive the manifestations of their aggression.

Wisdom

Just as a cautious businessman avoids investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us also not to anticipate all our happiness from one quarter alone.

Who surpasses or subdues mankind, must look down on the hate of those below.

~ Lord Byron ~

My wife's jealousy is getting ridiculous. The other day she looked at my calendar and wanted to know who May was.

~ Rodney Dangerfield ~

Jealousy is the jaundice of the soul.

~ John Dryden ~

Jealousy, that dragon which slays love under the pretence of keeping it alive.

~ Havelock Ellis ~

I've never been jealous. Not even when my dad finished the fifth grade a year before I did.

~ Jeff Foxworthy ~

In jealousy there is more of self-love than love.

~ Francois De La Rochefoucauld ~

The jealous are possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time.

~ Johann Kaspar Lavater ~

Plain women are always jealous of their husbands. Beautiful women never are. They are always so occupied with being jealous of other women's husbands.

~ Oscar Wilde ~
