Erich Fromm Quote: “There are many who feel consciously hopeful and unconsciously hopeless, and there are few for whom it is the other way around.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Only dogmatic thinking, the result of the laziness of mind and heart, tries to construct simplistic schemes of the either-or type that block any real understanding.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “If the religious system does not correspond to the prevalent social character, if it conflicts with the social practice of life, it is only an ideology.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “One can hardly overestimate people’s need to talk about themselves and to be listened to.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “In the view of the wise, Heaven is man and Earth woman: Earth fosters what Heaven lets fall.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The more man gains freedom in the sense of emerging from the original oneness with man and nature and the more he becomes an ‘individual,’ he has no choice but to unite himself with the world in the spontaneity of love and productive work or else to seek a kind of security by such ties with the world that destroys his freedom and the integrity of his individual self.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “But any explanation which analyzes one sector to the exclusion of all others is unbalanced, and thus wrong. The socio-economic, spiritual and psychological explanations look at the same phenomena from different aspects, and the very task of a theoretical analysis is to see how these different aspects are interrelated, and how they interact.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Not only thinking and feeling are determined by man’s character structure but also his actions.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Whether a carpenter makes a table, or a goldsmith a piece of jewelry, whether the peasant grows his corn, or the painter paints a picture, in all types of creative work the worker and his object become one, man unites himself with the world in the process of creation. This, however, holds true only for productive work, for work in which I plan, produce, see the result of my work. In the modern work process of a clerk, the worker on the endless.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “My duty not to remain passive in a world which seems to be moving toward self-chosen catastrophe.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “As Simone Weil expressed it so beautifully:“The same words can be commonplace or extraordinary according to the manner in which they are spoken. And this manner depends on the depth of the region in a man’s being from which they proceed without the will being able to do anything. And by a marvelous agreement they reach the same region in him who hears them. Thus the hearer can discern, if he has any power of discernment, what is the value of the words.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “It was the irrational doubt which springs from the isolation and powerlessness of an individual whose attitude toward the world is one of anxiety and hatred. This irrational doubt can never be cured by rational answers; it can only disappear if the individual becomes and integral part of a meaningful world.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “People are confused and unsure, they seek answers to guide them to joy, tranquillity, self-knowledge, salvation – but they also demand that it be easy to learn, that it require little or no effort, that results be quickly obtained.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Giving is the highest expression of potency. In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy. I experience myself as overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “The cruelty itself is motivated by something deeper: the wish to know the secret of things and of life.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “As a child, every human being passes through a state of powerlessness, and truth is one of the strongest weapons of those who have no power.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Today we take for granted that we are we. Yet the doubt about ourselves still exists, or has even grown.”
Erich Fromm Quote: “Will is based on activity, whim on passivity.”
