quotes for the day…


i have family who is perfectly and annoyingly living out this…

“Neurotics complain of their illness, but they make the most of it, and when it comes to taking it away from them they will defend it like a lioness her young. — sigmund freud”

and i agree with the next quote too…

“I personally believe we developed language because of our deep inner need to complain. ― Jane Wagner

and for clarification i always turn to the good doctor for some psychoanalysis, and he says…

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. – C.G. Jung”

oh well.

  1. Since you are seeking Freudian explanations for your troubles –
    Julia Kristeva, a feminist pyscho-analyst has this to say about our children driving us nuts with their ‘no’s and ‘why not’s. Abjection- the word for our miseries.

    “Upon entering the Mirror Stage, the child learns to distinguish between self and other, and enters the realm of shared cultural meaning, known as the symbolic. Kristeva describes the symbolic as the space in which the development of language allows the child to become a “speaking subject,” and to develop a sense of identity separate from the mother. This process of separation is known as abjection, whereby the child must reject and move away from the mother in order to enter into the world of language, culture, meaning, and the social.”

  2. I may have once been a student of these greats, but it doesn’t take one to figure out some of life’s simple truths, one of which is: you’re awesome. 😀
