Erich Fromm Quote: “If an individual is able to love productively, he loves himself, too; if he can love only others, he cannot love at all.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that man may become robots.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Erotic love begins with separateness, and ends in oneness. Motherly love begins with oneness, and leads to separateness.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “There is no meaning to life except the meaning man gives his life by the unfolding of his powers.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “To spare oneself from grief at all cost can be achieved only at the price of total detachment, which excludes the ability to experience happiness.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The attitude inherent in consumerism is that of swallowing the whole world. The consumer is the eternal suckling crying for the bottle.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “In love the paradox occurs that two beings become one and yet remain two.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “All men are in need of help and depend on one another. Human solidarity is the necessary condition for the unfolding of any one individual.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The scars left from the child’s defeat in the fight against irrational authority are to be found at the bottom of every neurosis.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “If there is no evidence that sport lowers aggression, at the same time it should be said that there is also no evidence that sport is motivated by aggression.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Just as modern mass production requires the standardization of commodities, so the social process requires standardization of man, and this standardization is called equality.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Freedom does not mean license.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The passion for having must lead to never-ending class war. The pretense of the communists that their system will end class struggle by abolishing classes is fiction, for their system is based on the principle of unlimited consumption as the goal of living. As long as everybody wants to have more, there must be formations of classes, there must be class war, and in global terms, there must be international war. Greed and peace preclude each other.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Man unites himself with the world in the process of creation.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Even the most sadistic and destructive man is human, as human as the saint.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Love is union with somebody, or something, outside oneself, under the condition of retaining the separateness and integrity of one’s own self.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Reason flows from the blending of rational thought and feeling. If the two functions are torn apart, thinking deteriorates into schizoid intellectual activity and feeling deteriorates into neurotic life-damaging passions.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Chronic boredom compensated or uncompensated constitutes one of the major psychopathological phenomena in contemporary technotronic society, although it is only recently that it has found some recognition.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Today the function of psychiatry, psychology and psychoanalysis threatens to become the tool in the manipulation of man.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Not that people think that love is not important. They are starved for it; they watch endless numbers of films about happy and unhappy love stories, they listen to hundreds of trashy songs about love – yet hardly anyone thinks that there is anything that needs to be learned about love. This.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The human passions transform man from a mere thing into a hero, into a being that in spite of tremendous handicaps tries to make sense of life.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “In the development of both capitalism and communism, as we visualize them in the next fifty or a hundred years, the processes that encourage human alienation will continue.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The process of learning an art can be divided conveniently into two parts: one, the mastery of the theory; the other, the mastery of the practice.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Care and responsibility are constituent elements of love, but without respect for and knowledge of the beloved person, love deteriorates into domination and possessiveness.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Understanding a person does not mean condoning; it only means that one does not accuse him as if one were God or a judge placed above him.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The basic for any approach to self-transformation is an ever-increasing awareness of reality and the shedding of illusions.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “I believe indeed that to rescue the humanist tradition of the last decades is of the utmost importance, and that Victor Serge is one of the outstanding personalities representing the socialist aspect of humanism.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Modern man’s happiness consists in the thrill of looking at the shop windows, and in buying all that he can afford to buy, either for cash or on installments.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Man does not suffer so much from poverty today as he suffers from the fact that he has become a cog in a large machine, an automaton, that his life has become empty and lost its meaning.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Two persons thus fall in love when they feel they have found the best object available on the market, considering the limitations of their own exchange values.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The successful revolutionary is a statesman, the unsuccessful one a criminal.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The customer is an object to be manipulated, not a concrete person whose aims the businessman is interested to satisfy.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The essential difference between the unhappy, neurotic type person and him of great joy is the difference between get and give.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “What is it that distinguishes man from animals? It is not his upright posture.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The full humanization of man requires the breakthrough from the possession-centered to the activity-centered orientation, from selfishness and egotism to solidarity and altruism.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Contemporary society preaches this ideal of unindividualized equality because it needs human atoms, each one the same, to make them function in a mass aggregation, smoothly, without friction; all obeying the same commands, yet everybody being convinced that he is following his own desires. Just as modern mass production requires the standardization of commodities, so the social process requires standardization of man, and this standardization is called “equality.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The individual is freed from the bondage of economic and political ties. He also gains in positive freedom by the active and independent role which he has to play in the new system. But simultaneously he is freed from those ties which used to be lived in a closed world the center of which was man; the world has become limitless and at the same time threatening.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The authoritarian character worships the past. What has been, will eternally be. To wish or to work for something that has not yet been before is crime or madness. The miracle of creation – and creation is always a miracle – is outside of his range of emotional experience.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “They have their big, ever-changing egos, but none has a self, a core, a sense of identity.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “All genuine ideals have one thing in common: they express the desire for something which is not yet accomplished but which is desirable for the purpose of the growth and happiness of the individual.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Modern man is alienated from himself, from his fellow men, and from nature. He has been transformed into a commodity, experiences his life forces as an investment which must bring him the maximum profit obtainable under existing market conditions.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Care, responsibility, respect and knowledge are mutually interdependent. They are a syndrome of attitudes which are to be found in the mature person; that is, in the person who develops his own powers productively, who only wants to have that which he has worked for, who has given up narcissistic dreams of omniscience and omnipotence, who has acquired humility based on the inner strength which only genuine productive activity can give.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “I only wish to be the fountain of love from which you drink, every drop promising eternal passion.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Mother’s love is bliss, is peace, it need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. If it is there, it is like a blessing; if it is not there it is as if all the beauty had gone out of life.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Love is the active concern for the life and the growth of that which we love. Where this active concern is lacking, there is no love.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “We live in a world of things, and our only connection with them is that we know how to manipulate or to consume them.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “To live is to be born every minute. Death occurs when birth stops.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Escape from Freedom attempts to show, modern man still is anxious and tempted to surrender his freedom to dictators of all kinds, or to lose it by transforming himself into a small cog in the machine, well fed, and well clothed, yet not a free man but an automaton.”
