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: “You remember the past not so that it is “accurately recorded,” to say it again, but so that you are prepared for the future.”
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: “Put your desires forward, as if you had a right to them – at least the same right as others.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “If you start with little you start with more possibility.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Every explorer is therefore, by necessity, a revolutionary, and every successful revolutionary is a peacemaker.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Dreams shed light on the dim places where reason itself has yet to voyage.”
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: “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: “The things that pose the greatest threats to your survival are the most real things.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “An aim, an ambition, provides the structure necessary for action. An aim provides a destination, a point of contrast against the present, and a framework, within which all things can be evaluated. An aim defines progress and makes such progress exciting. An aim reduces anxiety, because if you have no aim everything can mean anything or nothing, and neither of those two options makes for a tranquil spirit.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Humility: It is better to presume ignorance and invite learning than to assume sufficient knowledge and risk the consequent blindness.”
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: “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: “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: “I don’t think that you have any insight whatsoever into your capacity for good until you have some well-developed insight into your capacity for evil.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “Michelangelo’s great perfect marble David cries out to its observer: “You could be more than you are.”
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: “Without free speech there is no true thought.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Taking the easy way out or telling the truth – those are not merely two different choices. They are different pathways through life. They are utterly different ways of existing.”
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: “People are better at filling and properly administering prescription medication to their pets than to themselves.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “Don’t reorganize the state until you have ordered your own experience.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “I’m not hurt. I’m appalled.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “You are not simply your own possession to torture and mistreat.”
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: “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: “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: “It is Nature as Woman who says, “Well, bucko, you’re good enough for a friend, but my experience of you so far has not indicated the suitability of your genetic material for continued propagation.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “What should you do, when you don’t know what to do? Tell the truth.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When things break down, what has been ignored rushes in. When things are no longer specified, with precision, the walls crumble, and chaos makes its presence known. When we’ve been careless, and let things slide, what we have refused to attend to gathers itself up, adopts a serpentine form, and strikes – often at the worst possible moment. It is then that we see what focused intent, precision of aim and careful attention protects us from.”
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: “Ask, and ye shall receive. Knock, and the door will open. If you ask, as if you want, and knock, as if you want to enter, you may be offered the chance to improve your life, a little; a lot; completely – and with that improvement, some progress will be made in Being itself.”
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: “Aristotle defined the virtues simply as the ways of behaving that are most conducive to happiness in life.”
