Sigmund Freud Quote: “I do not in general have the impression that sexual abstinence helps produce energetic, independent men of action or original thinkers, bold liberators and reformers. Far more often it produces well-behaved weaklings who later merge into the great mass of those who habitually, if reluctantly, follow the lead given by strong individuals.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “For there is a way back from imagination to reality and that is – art.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The superego is, however, not simply a residue of the earliest object-choices of the id; it also represents an energetic reaction-formation against those choices.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The dream acts as a safety-valve for the over-burdened brain.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Human’s intrinsic nature manifest in it’s misunderstandings.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “I was making frequent use of cocaine at that time... I had been the first to recommend the use of cocaine, in 1885, and this recommendation had brought serious reproaches down on me.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The act of birth is the first experience of anxiety, and thus the source and prototype of the affect of anxiety.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Free sexual intercourse between young males and respectable girls” was urgently necessary or society was “doomed to fall a victim to incurable neuroses which reduce the enjoyment of life to a minimum, destroy the marriage relation and bring hereditary ruin on the whole coming generation.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “It sounds not only disagreeable but also paradoxical, yet it must nevertheless be said that anyone who is to be really free and happy in love must have surmounted his respect for women and have come to terms with the idea of incest with his mother or sister.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Whatever fosters the growth of civilization works at the same time against war.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The defense against childish helplessness is what lends its characteristic features to the adult’s reaction to the helplessness which he has to acknowledge – a reaction which is precisely the formation of religion.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Concerning the factors of silence, solitude and darkness, we can only say that they are actually elements in the production of the infantile anxiety from which the majority of human beings have never become quite free.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The impression forces itself upon one that men measure by false standards, that everyone seeks power, success, riches for himself, and admires others who attain them, while undervaluing the truly precious thing in life.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “To endure life remains, when all is said, the first duty of all living being Illusion can have no value if it makes this more difficult for us.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The ego refuses to be distressed by the provocations of reality, to let itself be compelled to suffer. It insists that it cannot be affected by the traumas of the external world; it shows, in fact, that such traumas are no more than occasions for it to gain pleasure.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “In the long run, nothing can withstand reason and experience, and the contradiction religion offers to both is palpable.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed by the deep inner needs of our nature.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Man has, as it were, become a kind of prosthetic God. When he puts on all his auxiliary organs, he is truly magnificent; but those organs have not grown on him and they still give him much trouble at times.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “We have learned, for example, that the more virtuous a man is the more severe is his super-ego, and that he blames himself for misfortunes for which he is clearly not responsible.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The way in which these factors – displacement, condensation, and over-determination – interact in the process of dream-formation, and the question of which becomes dominant and which secondary, are things we shall set aside for later inquiries.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “In the development of mankind as a whole, just as in individuals, love alone acts as the civilizing factor in the sense that it brings a change from egoism to altruism.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Religion is comparable to a childhood neurosis.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Where questions of religion are concerned, people are guilty of every possible sort of dishonesty and intellectual misdemeanor.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The waking life never repeats itself with its trials and joys, its pleasures and pains, but, on the contrary, the dream aims to relieve us of these. Even when our whole mind is filled with one subject, when profound sorrow has torn our hearts or when a task has claimed the whole power of our mentality, the dream either gives us something entirely strange, or it takes for its combinations only a few elements from reality, or it only enters into the strain of our mood and symbolises reality.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “I have found little that is ‘good’ about human beings on the whole. In my experience most of them are trash, no matter whether they publicly subscribe to this or that ethical doctrine or to none at all. That is something that you cannot say aloud, or perhaps even think.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The weakness of my position does not imply a strengthening of yours.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “We must not allow ourselves to be deflected by the feminists who are anxious to force us to regard the two sexes as completely equal in position and worth.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The individual does actually carry on a double existence: one designed to serve his own purposes and another as a link in a chain, in which he serves against, or at any rate without, any volition of his own.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Nothing that is mentally our own can ever be lost.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Plaque was placed on 6 May 1977 at Bellevue (a house on the slopes of the Wienerwald) where the Freud family spent their summers.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The psychic development of the individual is a short repetition of the course of development of the race.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “I do not think our successes can compete with those of Lourdes. There are so many more people who believe in the miracles of the Blessed Virgin than in the existence of the unconscious.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “We are so made that we can derive intense enjoyment only from a contrast and very little from a state of things.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The state in which the ideas existed before being made conscious is called by us repression, and we assert that the force which instituted the repression and maintains it is perceived as resistance during the work of analysis.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The first is the Credo quia absurdum of the early Father. It would imply that religious doctrines are outside reason’s jurisdiction; they stand above reason. Their truth must be inwardly felt: one does not need to comprehend them.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The idea of life having a purpose stands and falls with the religious system.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Another technique for fending off suffering is the employment of the displacements of libido which our mental apparatus permits of and through which its function gains so much in flexibility. The task here is that of shifting the instinctual aims in such a way that they cannot come up against frustration from the external world.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “There is no likelihood of our being able to suppress humanity’s aggressive tendencies... Complete suppression of man’s aggressive tendencies is not an issue; what we may try is to direct it into a channel other than that of warfare.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “We should picture the instrument that carries our mental functioning as resembling a compound microscope or photographic apparatus.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “We live in very remarkable times. We find with astonishment that progress has concluded an alliance with barbarism.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Incidentally, why was it that none of all the pious ever discovered psycho-analysis? Why did it have to wait for a completely godless Jew?”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The genitals themselves have not undergone the development of the rest of the human form in the direction of beauty.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The wish to be able to fly is to be understood as nothing else than a longing to be capable of sexual performance.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “We must reckon with the possibility that something in the nature of the sexual instinct itself is unfavorable to the realization of complete satisfaction.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “I consider it a good rule for letter-writing to leave unmentioned what the recipient already knows, and instead tell him something new.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “I no longer believe that William Shakespeare the actor from Stratford was the author of the works that have been ascribed to him.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “The dream shows how recollections of one’s everyday life can be worked into a structure where one person can be substituted for another, where unacknowledged feelings like envy and guilt can find expression, where ideas can be linked by verbal similarities, and where the laws of logic can be suspended.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “Most of the ‘pain’ we experience is of a perceptual order, perception either of the urge of unsatisfied instincts or of something in the external world which may be painful in itself or may arouse painful anticipations in the psychic apparatus and is recognised by it as ’danger.”
Sigmund Freud Quote: “There is an intellectual function in us which demands unity, connection and intelligibility from any material, whether of perception or thought, that comes within its grasp; and if, as a result of special circumstances, it is unable to establish a true connection, it does not hesitate to fabricate a false one.”
