Carl R. Rogers Quote: “If we value independence, if we are disturbed by the growing conformity of knowledge, of values, of attitudes, which our present system induces, then we may wish to set up conditions of learning which make for uniqueness, for self-direction, and for self-initiated learning.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “We in the West seem to have made a fetish out of complete individual self-sufficiency, of not needing help, of being completely private except in a very few selected relationships.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “The only way to understand another culture is to assume the frame of reference of that culture.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Neurotic behavior is quite predictable. Healthy behavior is unpredictable.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Don’t be a damned ammunition wagon. Be a rifle!”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I believe that the testing of the student’s achievements in order to see if he meets some criterion held by the teacher, is directly contrary to the implications of therapy for significant learning.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Both the young and the old are almost completely useless in our modern society, and are made keenly aware of that uselessness. They have no place. They are private, isolated – and hopeless.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “A second characteristic of the process which for me is the good life, is that it involves an increasingly tendency to live fully in each moment. I believe it would be evident that for the person who was fully open to his new experience, completely without defensiveness, each moment would be new.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “The elements in a relationship which seem impossible to share, the secretly disturbing, dissatisfying elements, are the most rewarding to share. This is a hard, risky, frightening thing to learn, and it needs to be re-learned over and over.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “No other person’s ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “It seems to me to have value because the curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am, then I change.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I have come to feel that the more fully the individual is understood and accepted, the more he tends to drop the false fronts with which he has been meeting life, and the more he tends to move in a direction which is forward.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “You can’t possibly be afraid of death, really, you can only be afraid of life.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Though modern Marriage is a tremendous laboratory, its members are often without preparation for the partnership function. How much agony and remorse and failure could have been avoided if there had been at least some rudimentary learning before they entered the partnership.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Loneliness is a barrier that prevents one from uniting with the inner self.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “When you are in psychological distress and someone really hears you without passing judgement on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mold you, it feels damn good!”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “The very essence of the creative is its novelty, and hence we have no standard by which to judge it.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “The sense of community does not arise out of collective movement, nor from conforming to some group direction. Quite the contrary. Each individual tends to use the opportunity to become all that he or she can become. Separateness and diversity – the uniqueness of being “me” – are experienced.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I believe I know why it is satisfying to me to hear someone. When I can really hear someone, it puts me in touch with him; it enriches my life. It is through hearing people that I have learned all that I know about individuals, about personality, about interpersonal relationships.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I was forced to stretch my thinking, to realize that sincere and honest people could believe in very divergent religious doctrines.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I have come to feel that the only learning which significantly influences behavior is self-discovered, self-appropriated learning.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Most of us consist of two separated parts, trying desperately to bring themselves together into an integrated soma, where the distinctions between mind and body, feelings and intellect, would be obliterated.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “If the time comes when our culture tires of the endless homicidal feuds, despairs of the use of force and war as a means of bringing peace, becomes discontent with the half-lives that its members are living – only then will our culture seriously look for alternatives.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I observe first that characteristically the client shows a tendency to move away, hesitantly and fearfully, from a self that he is not. In other words even though there maybe no recognition of what he might be moving toward, he is moving away from something. And of course in so doing he is beginning to define, however negatively, what he is.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I find it very satisfying when I can be real, when I can be close to whatever it is that is going on within me. I like it when I can listen to myself. To really know what I am experiencing in the moment is by no means an easy thing, but I feel somewhat encouraged because I think that over the years I have been improving at it.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “In my relationships with persons I have found that it does not help, in the long run, to act as though I were something that I am not.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I have learned that my total organismic sensing of a situation is more trustworthy than my intellect.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Experience is, for me, the highest authority. The touchstone of validity is my own experience. No other person’s ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience. It is to experience that I must return again and again, to discover a closer approximation to truth as it is in the process of becoming in me. Neither the Bible nor the prophets – neither Freud nor research – neither the revelations of God nor man – can take precedence over my own direct experience.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I have come to recognize that the reason I devote myself to research, and to the building of theory, is to satisfy a need for perceiving order and meaning, a subjective need which exists in me.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “We cannot deal with the increasing maldistribution of wealth, the increasing alienation of millions, or the lack of a unified purpose and goal by increasing the efficiency of production, increasing the automation of industry, accelerating our technology, or increasing our reliance on the profit motives of multinational corporations.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I would like to make it very plain that these are learnings which have significance for me. I do not know whether they would hold true for you. I have no desire to present them as a guide for anyone else. Yet I have found that when another person has been willing to tell me something of his inner directions this has been of value to me, if only in sharpening my realization that my directions are different.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “The intolerant “true believer” is a menace to any field, yet I suspect each one of us finds traces of that person in ourself.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Time and again in my clients, I have seen simple people become significant and creative in their own spheres, as they have developed more trust of the processes going on within themselves, and have dared to feel their own feelings, live by values which they discover within, and express themselves in their own unique ways.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “When I am thus able to be in process, it is clear that there can be no closed system of beliefs, no unchanging set of principles which I hold. Life is guided by a changing understanding of and interpretation of my experience. It is always in process of becoming.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “To be what one is, is to enter fully into being a process.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “In therapy the individual learns to recognize and express his feelings as his own feelings, not as a fact about another person.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Can I freely permit this staff member or my son or my daughter to become a separate person with ideas, purposes, and values which may not be identical with my own?”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “The facts are always friendly, every bit of evidence one can acquire, in any area, leads one that much closer to what is true.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “One of the most satisfying feelings I know – and also one of the most growth-promoting experiences for the other person – comes from my appreciating this individual in the same way that I appreciate a sunset. People are just as wonderful as sunsets if I can let them be. In fact, perhaps the reason we can truly appreciate a sunset is that we cannot control it.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “With the price of life these days, you’ve got to get everything for free you can.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Although the client-centered approach had its origin purely within the limits of the psychological clinic, it is proving to have implications, often of a startling nature, for very diverse fields of effort.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Allowance of the freedom of choices in direction, either for the group or individuals particularly in the near future.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Learning of all kinds goes on best, lasts best, and tends to lead itself on more when it grows out of a real focus of interest in the learner.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Unless man can make new and original adaptations to his environment as rapidly as his science can change the environment, our culture will perish.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “The strongest force in our universe is not overriding power, but love.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I regret it when I suppress my feelings too long and they burst forth in ways that are distorted or attacking or hurtful.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “There is no organised encounter group. There is simply a freedom of expression – of feelings and thoughts – on any personally relevant issue.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “He is learning that the feelings which exist are good enough to live by. They do not have to be coated with a veneer.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “Each man must resolve within himself issues for which his society previously took full responsibility.”
Carl R. Rogers Quote: “I believe that individuals nowadays are probably more aware of their inner loneliness than has ever been true before in history.”
