Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Not everyone who is failing is a victim, and not everyone at the bottom wishes to rise, although many do, and many manage it.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “The only time no ever means no in the absence of violence is when it is uttered by one civilized person to another.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Territory matters, and there is little difference between territorial rights and social status. It is often a matter of life and death.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Shared beliefs simplify the world, as well, because people who know what to expect from one another can act together to tame the world. There is perhaps nothing more important than the maintenance of this organization – this simplification. If it’s threatened, the great ship of state rocks.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “The first: limit the rules. The second: Use the least force necessary to enforce those rules.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “If society is corrupt, but not the individuals within it, then where did the corruption originate? How is it propagated? It’s a one-sided, deeply ideological theory.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “I have clients who are nowhere near as insane as their family is, but they’re the people who have been targeted with the mental illnesses because that’s convenient for everyone involved.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Many bureaucracies have petty authoritarians within them, generating unnecessary rules and procedures simply to express and cement power. Such people produce powerful undercurrents of resentment around them which, if expressed, would limit their expression of pathological power. It is in this manner that the willingness of the individual to stand up for him or herself protects everyone from the corruption of society.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Success: that’s the mystery. Virtue: that’s what’s inexplicable. To fail, you merely have to cultivate a few bad habits. You just have to bide your time. And once someone has spent enough time cultivating bad habits and biding their time, they are much diminished.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “To stand up straight with your shoulders back means building the ark that protects the world from the flood, guiding your people through the desert after they have escaped tyranny, making your way away from comfortable home and country, and speaking the prophetic word to those who ignore the widows and children. It means shouldering the cross that marks the X, the place where you and Being intersect so terribly.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “You have to be willing to be a fool to advance.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “It is because of of Freud, Jung, Nietzsche – and Orwell – that I always wonder, “What, then, do you stand against?” whenever I hear someone say, too loudly, “I stand for this!” The question seems particularly relevant if the same someone is complaining, criticizing, or trying to change someone else’s behaviour.”
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: “Maybe you’re even just a collection of bad habits.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “How could the world be freed from the terrible dilemma of conflict, on the one hand, and psychological and social dissolution, on the other? The answer was this: through the elevation and development of the individual, and through the willingness of everyone to shoulder the burden of Being and to take the heroic path.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “The body, with its various parts, needs to function like a well-rehearsed orchestra. Every system must play its role properly, and at exactly the right time, or noise and chaos ensue. It is for this reason that routine is so necessary. The acts of life we repeat every day need to be automatized. They must be turned into stable and reliable habits, so they lose their complexity and gain predictability and simplicity.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “If you can bite, you generally don’t have to.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When you decide to learn about your faults, so that they can be rectified, you open a line of communication with the source of all revelatory thought. Maybe that’s the same thing as consulting your conscience. Maybe that’s the same thing, in some manner, as a discussion with God.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Our behavioral patterns are exceedingly complex, and psychology is a young science. The scope of our behavioral wisdom exceeds the breadth of our explicit interpretation. We act, even instruct, and yet do not understand. How can we do what we cannot explain?”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Thus, you need to place one foot in what you have mastered and understood and the other in what you are currently exploring and mastering. Then you have positioned yourself where the terror of existence is under control and you are secure, but where you are also alert and engaged. That is where there is something new to master and some way that you can be improved. That is where meaning is to be found.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Thus, not only is the state supporting one-sided radicalism, it is also supporting indoctrination. We do not teach our children that the world is flat. Neither should we teach them unsupported ideologically-predicated theories about the nature of men and women – or the nature of hierarchy.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “That which you most need to find will be found where you least wish to look.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “What should you do, when you don’t know what to do? Tell the truth.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When you are fighting against something than there’s something else you are not doing.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Failure is the price we pay for standards and, because mediocrity has consequences both real and harsh, standards are necessary.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “But we can aim too high. Or too low. Or too chaotically. So we fail and live in disappointment, even when we appear to others to be living well.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Life without law remains chaotic, effectively intolerable. Life that is pure law becomes sterile, equally unbearable. The domination of chaos or sterility equally breeds murderous resentment and hatred.”
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: “If you have a comprehensive explanation for everything then it decreases uncertainty and anxiety and reduces your cognitive load. And if you can use that simplifying algorithm to put yourself on the side of moral virtue then you’re constantly a good person with a minimum of effort.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Without free speech there is no true thought.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “When you move, everything is up in the air, at least for a while. It’s stressful, but in the chaos there are new possibilities. People, including you, can’t hem you in with their old notions. You get shaken out of your ruts.”
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: “What is going to save you? The totalitarian says, in essence, “You must rely on faith in what you already know.” But that is not what saves. What saves is the willingness to learn from what you don’t know. That is faith in the possibility of human transformation. That is faith in the sacrifice of the current self for the self that could be. The totalitarian denies the necessity for the individual to take ultimate responsibility for Being.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “The idea that you can target an ethnic group with a collective crime, regardless of the specific innocence or guilt of the constituent elements of that group – there is absolutely nothing that’s more racist than that.”
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: “What you should do when you’re writing a book is you should have a question and it should be a real question. It should be one you don’t know the answer to and then you should be studying and writing like mad and reading everything you can get your hands on to see if you can actually grapple with the problem and come to some solution and you should walk the reader as well through your process of thinking.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Don’t blame capitalism, the radical left, or the iniquity of your enemies. Don’t reorganize the state until you have ordered your own experience. Have some humility. If you cannot bring peace to your household, how dare you try to rule a city?”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Your inaction, inertia and cynicism removes from the world that part of you that could learn to quell suffering and make peace.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Ideologies are substitutes for true knowledge, and ideologues are always dangerous when they come to power, because a simple-minded I-know-it-all approach is no match for the complexity of existence.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “To place the alleviation of unnecessary pain and suffering at the pinnacle of your hierarchy of value is to work to bring about the Kingdom of God on Earth. That’s a state, and a state of mind, at the same time.”
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: “Untruth corrupts the soul and the state alike, and one form of corruption feeds the other.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “The “natural” human tendency to respond to the stranger, the strange idea and the creative individual with fear and aggression can be more easily comprehended, once it is understood that these diverse phenomena share categorical identity with the “natural disaster.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “You’ve all decided to sacrifice the future to the present. You don’t talk about it. You don’t all get together and say, “Let’s take the easier path. Let’s indulge in whatever the moment might bring. And let’s agree, further, not to call each other on it.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “It’s the chattering buzz of ideologically possessed demons.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Make friends with people who want the best for you.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Don’t cast pearls before swine, as the old saying goes. And you might think that’s harsh. But training your child not to sleep, and rewarding him with the antics of a creepy puppet? That’s harsh too. You pick your poison, and I’ll pick mine.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “We must bear a load, to justify our miserable existence.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “Here’s the fundamental problem: group identity can be fractionated right down to the level of the individual. That sentence should be written in capital letters. Every person is unique – and not just in a trivial manner: importantly, significantly, meaningfully unique. Group membership cannot capture that variability. Period.”
Jordan B. Peterson Quote: “To straddle that fundamental duality is to be balanced: to have one foot firmly planted in order and security, and the other in chaos, possibility, growth and adventure. When life suddenly reveals itself as intense, gripping and meaningful; when time passes and you’re so engrossed in what you’re doing you don’t notice – it is there and then that you are located precisely on the border between order and chaos.”
