Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “If you start with little you start with more possibility.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “There are so many ways that things can fall apart, or fail to work altogether, and it is always wounded people who are holding it together.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Every game has rules... The first of these rules is that the game is important. If it wasn’t important, you wouldn’t be playing it.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “There is little more natural than culture. Dominance hierarchies are older than trees. The part of our brain that keeps track of our position in the dominance hierarchy is therefore exceptionally ancient and fundamental.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “You’re in order, when you have a loyal friend, a trustworthy ally. When the same person betrays you, sells you out, you move from the daytime world of clarity and light to the dark underworld of chaos, confusion and despair.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Maybe you are a loser. And maybe you’re not – but if you are, you don’t have to continue in that mode.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “You cannot be protected from the things that frighten you and hurt you, but if you identify with the part of your being that is responsible for transformation, then you aare always the equal, or more than the equal of the things that frighten you.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When you dare aspire upward, you reveal the inadequacy of the present and the promise of the future. Then you disturb others, in the depths of their souls, where they understand that their cynicism and immobility are unjustifiable. You play Abel to their Cain.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Your wisdom then consists not of the knowledge you already have, but the continual search for knowledge, which is the highest form of wisdom.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “We require rules, standards, values – alone and together. We’re pack animals, beasts of burden. We must bear a load, to justify our miserable existence.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “No tree can grow to Heaven,” adds the ever-terrifying Carl Gustav Jung, psychoanalyst extraordinaire, “unless its roots reach down to Hell.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Everybody acts out a myth, but very few people know what their myth is and you should know what your myth is, because it might be a tragedy. And maybe you don’t want it to be.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When a lobster that has just lost a battle is exposed to serotonin, it will stretch itself out, advance even on former victors, and fight longer and harder.9 The drugs prescribed to depressed human beings, which are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, have much the same chemical and behavioural effect. In one of the more staggering demonstrations of the evolutionary continuity of life on Earth, Prozac even cheers up lobsters.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “People are better at filling and properly administering prescription medication to their pets than to themselves.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Don’t reorganize the state until you have ordered your own experience.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “The things that pose the greatest threats to your survival are the most real things.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “I’m not hurt. I’m appalled.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Dreams shed light on the dim places where reason itself has yet to voyage.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Forest fires burn out deadwood and return trapped elements to the soil. Sometimes, however, fires are suppressed, artificially. That does not stop the deadwood from accumulating. Sooner or later, a fire will start. When it does, it will burn so hot that everything will be destroyed – even the soil in which the forest grows.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When the aristocracy catches a cold, as it is said, the working class dies of pneumonia.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “One of the problems with being relatively wealthy if you are a parent is that you cannot provide your children with necessity.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “It is instead the realization that the tragic irrationalities of life must be counterbalanced by an equally irrational commitment to the essential goodness of Being.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “If you surround yourself with people who support your upward aim, they will not tolerate your cynicism and destructiveness. They will instead encourage you when you do good for yourself and others and punish you carefully when you do not.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When should you push back against oppression, despite the danger? When you start nursing secret fantasies of revenge; when your life is being poisoned and your imagination fills with the wish to devour and destroy.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Loss of group-centred belief renders life chaotic, miserable, intolerable; presence of group-centred belief makes conflict with other groups inevitable. In the West, we have been withdrawing from our tradition-, religion-, and even nation-centred cultures, partly to decrease the danger of group conflict. But we are increasingly falling prey to the desperation of meaningless, and that is no improvement at all.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Stop the discussion for a moment, and institute this rule: ‘Each person can speak up for himself only after he has first restated the ideas and feelings of the previous speaker accurately, and to that speaker’s satisfaction.’” I have found this technique very useful, in my private life and in my practice. I routinely summarize what people have said to me, and ask them if I have understood properly.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Consciousness is a mystery that faces the mystery of potential and transforms it into actuality. We do that with every choice we make. Our choices determine the destiny of the world. By making a choice, you alter the structure of reality.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “It isn’t precisely that people will fight for what they believe. They will fight, instead, to maintain the match between what they believe, what they expect, and what they desire.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When existence reveals itself as existentially intolerable, thinking collapses in on itself. In such situations – in the depths – it’s noticing, not thinking, that does the trick.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Are you so sure the person crying out to be saved has not decided a thousand times to accept his lot of pointless and worsening suffering, simply because it is easier than shouldering any true responsibility? Are you enabling a delusion? Is it possible that your contempt would be more salutary than your pity?”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the great documenter of the slave-labour-camp horrors of the latter, once wrote that the “pitiful ideology” holding that “human beings are created for happiness” was an ideology “done in by the first blow of the work assigner’s cudgel.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “We believe that in reducing the scope and importance of our errors, we are properly humble; in truth, we are merely unwilling to bear the weight of our true responsibility.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “To say it again: it is the greatest temptation of the rational faculty to glorify its own capacity and its own productions and to claim that in the face of its theories nothing transcendent or outside its domain need exist. This means that all important facts have been discovered. This means that nothing important remains unknown.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “It indicates clearly that people need ordering principles, and that chaos otherwise beckons.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Aristotle defined the virtues simply as the ways of behaving that are most conducive to happiness in life.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Alternatively, perfection might be regarded as the absence of all unnecessary things, and the pleasures of an ascetic life.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Thus, they did not concern themselves with what the world was, as a scientist might have it, but with how a human being should act. I suggested that our ancestors portrayed the world as a stage – a drama – instead of a place of objects. I described how I had come to believe that the constituent elements of the world as drama were order and chaos, and not material things.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Something we cannot see protects us from something we do not understand. The thing we cannot see is culture, in its intrapsychic or internal manifestation. The thing we do not understand is the chaos that gave rise to culture. If the structure of culture is disrupted, unwittingly, chaos returns. We will do anything – anything – to defend ourselves against that return.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “You are not simply your own possession to torture and mistreat.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Inequality is the deepest of problems, built into the structure of reality itself, and will not be solved by the presumptuous, ideology-inspiring retooling of the rare free, stable and productive democracies of the world.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “If you have a friend whose friendship you wouldn’t recommend to your sister, or your father, or your son, why would you have such a friend for yourself?”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Psychotherapy is not advice. Advice is what you get when the person you’re talking with about something horrible and complicated wishes you would just shut up and go away. Advice is what you get when the person you are talking to wants to revel in the superiority of his or her own intelligence. If you weren’t so stupid, after all, you wouldn’t have your stupid problems.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Alcohol temporarily lifts the terrible burden of self-consciousness from people. Drunk people know about the future, but they don’t care about it. That’s exciting. That’s exhilarating. Drunk people can party like there’s no tomorrow. But, because there is a tomorrow – most of the time – drunk people also get in trouble.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “In the West, we have been withdrawing from our tradition-, religion- and even nation-centred cultures, partly to decrease the danger of group conflict. But we are increasingly falling prey to the desperation of meaninglessness, and that is no improvement at all.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “There is very little difference between the capacity for mayhem and destruction, integrated, and strength of character. This is one of the most difficult lessons of life.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Don’t underestimate the power of vision and direction. These are irresistible forces, able to transform what might appear to be unconquerable obstacles into traversable pathways and expanding opportunities.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Worthlessness is the default condition.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Cooperation is for safety, security and companionship. Competition is for personal growth and status.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “You have to be willing to be a fool to advance.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “The poor and stressed always die first, and in greater numbers. They are also much more susceptible to non- infectious diseases, such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.”
