When we suffer anguish we return to early childhood because that is the period in which we first learnt to suffer the experience of total loss. It was more than that. It was the period in which we suffered more total losses than in all the rest of our life put together.
— John Berger (via psych-quotes)
But insight doesn’t necessarily produce self-control. Sometimes you just see your destructiveness more clearly.
— Keith Ablow, Denial (via psych-quotes)
Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful; yourself.
— Alan Alda (via thatkindofwoman)
