Madness
Engrave this Quote One who shows signs of mental aberration is, inevitably, perhaps, but cruelly, shut off from familiar, thoughtless intercourse, partly excommunicated; his isolation is unwittingly proclaimed to him on every countenance by curiosity, indifference, aversion, or pity, and in so far as he is human enough to need free and equal communication and feel the lack of it, he suffers pain and loss of a kind and degree which others can only faintly imagine, and for the most part ignore.

Mind, the
Engrave this Quote The mind is not a hermit's cell, but a place of hospitality and intercourse.

People
Engrave this Quote We have no higher life that is really apart from other people. It is by imagining them that our personality is built up; to be without the power of imagining them is to be a low-grade idiot.

Power
Engrave this Quote The need to exert power, when thwarted in the open fields of life, is the more likely to assert itself in trifles.

Praise
Engrave this Quote By recognizing a favorable opinion of yourself, and taking pleasure in it, you in a measure give yourself and your peace of mind into the keeping of another, of whose attitude you can never be certain. You have a new source of doubt and apprehension.

Professionalism
Engrave this Quote It is surely a matter of common observation that a man who knows no one thing intimately has no views worth hearing on things in general. The farmer philosophizes in terms of crops, soils, markets, and implements, the mechanic generalizes his experiences of wood and iron, the seaman reaches similar conclusions by his own special road; and if the scholar keeps pace with these it must be by an equally virile productivity.

Prudence
Engrave this Quote Prudence and compromise are necessary means, but every man should have an impudent end which he will not compromise.

Psychiatry
Engrave this Quote The human mind is indeed a cave swarming with strange forms of life, most of them unconscious and unilluminated. Unless we can understand something as to how the motives that issue from this obscurity are generated, we can hardly hope to foresee or control them.

Reading
Engrave this Quote A person of mature years and ripe development, who is expecting nothing from literature but the corroboration and renewal of past ideas, may find satisfaction in a lucidity so complete as to occasion no imaginative excitement, but young and ambitious students are not content with it. They seek the excitement because they are capable of the growth that it accompanies.

Sex
Engrave this Quote The more developed sexual passion, in both sexes, is very largely an emotion of power, domination, or appropriation. There is no state of feeling that says mine, mine, more fiercely.

Simplicity
Engrave this Quote Simplicity is a pleasant thing in children, or at any age, but it is not necessarily admirable, nor is affectation altogether a thing of evil. To be normal, to be at home in the world, with a prospect of power, usefulness, or success, the person must have that imaginative insight into other minds that underlies tact and savoir-faire, morality and beneficence. This insight involves sophistication, some understanding and sharing of the clandestine impulses of human nature. A simplicity that is merely the lack of this insight indicates a sort of defect.

Society
Engrave this Quote Our individual lives cannot, generally, be works of art unless the social order is also.

-Charles Horton Cooley, Life and the Student
Engrave this Quote Institutions -- government, churches, industries, and the like -- have properly no other function than to contribute to human freedom; and in so far as they fail, on the whole, to perform this function, they are wrong and need reconstruction.

Talent
Engrave this Quote A talent somewhat above mediocrity, shrewd and not too sensitive, is more likely to rise in the world than genius.

Travel
Engrave this Quote The idea that seeing life means going from place to place and doing a great variety of obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Unions
Engrave this Quote One of the great reasons for the popularity of strikes is that they give the suppressed self a sense of power. For once the human tool knows itself a man, able to stand up and speak a word or strike a blow.

Vacations
Engrave this Quote To get away from one's working environment is, in a sense, to get away from one's self; and this is often the chief advantage of travel and change.

Worth
