Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

Be silent, if you choose; but when it is necessary, speak–and speak in such a way that people will remember it.

 image quote by Sigmund Freud

Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure you are not, in fact, surrounded by assholes.

When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.

The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water.

Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Love is a state of temporary psychosis.

If you find someone who makes you smile, who checks up on you often to see if you're okay. Who watches out or you and wants the best for you. Who loves and respects you. Don't let them go. People like that are hard to find.

 image quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger

You can have results or excuses. Not both.

Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.

Civilization began the first time an angry person cast a word instead of a rock.

I pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings.

The fidelity of a dog is a precious gift demanding no less binding moral responsibilities than the friendship of a human being.

I prefer the company of animals more than the company of humans.

Certainly, a wild animal is cruel. But to be merciless is the privilege of civilized humans.

The only normal people are the ones you don't know very well.

One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.

Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.

Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.

All family life is organized around the most damaged person in it.

For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.

Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.

You can't climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.

Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.

The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.

Our greatest human freedom is that, despite whatever our physical situation is in life, WE ARE ALWAYS FREE TO CHOOSE OUR THOUGHTS!

Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

Follow your heart but take your brain with you.

Courage is not an ability one either possess or lacks.

Courage is the willingness to engage in a risk-taking behavior regardless of whether the consequences are unknown or possibly adverse. We are capable of courageous behavior provided we are willing to engage in it. Given that life offers few guarantees, all living requires risk-taking.

 image quote by Sigmund Freud

Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.

A simple rule in dealing with those who are hard to get along with is to remember that this person is striving to assert his superiority; and you must deal with him from that point of view.

To be completely honest with oneself is the very best effort a human being can make.

Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.

Men are most virile and most attractive between the ages of 35 and 55.

Under 35 a man has too much to learn, and I don't have time to teach him.

Life is never made unbearable by circumstances, but only by lack of meaning and purpose.

The only shame in masturbation is the shame of not doing it well.

 image quote by Sigmund Freud

People do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.

We are not determined by our experiences, but are self-determined by the meaning we give to them; and when we take particular experiences as the basis for our future life, we are almost certain to be misguided to some degree. Meanings are not determined by situations. We determine ourselves by the meanings we ascribe to situations.

Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate.

When a man is freed of religion, he has a better chance to live a normal and wholesome life.

It is the individual who is not interested in his fellow men who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others. It is fro+m among such individuals that all human failures spring.

Maturity is the ability to postpone gratification.

Most people have forgotten how to live with living creatures, with living systems and that, in turn, is the reason why man, whenever he comes into contact with nature, threatens to kill the natural system in which and from which he live.

 image quote by Franz Kafka

Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow you most intense obsessions mercilessly.

You can be healed of depression if every day you begin the first thing in the morning to consider how you will bring a real joy to someone else.

Where does a thought go when it's forgotten?

Whenever a theory appears to you as the only possible one, take this as a sign that you have neither understood the theory nor the problem which it was intended to solve.

When human beings meet together seeking the spirit with unity of purpose then they will also find their way to each other.

 image quote by Sigmund Freud

There are no mistakes.

I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.

A lot of people criticize Formula 1 as an unnecessary risk.

But what would life be like if we only did what is necessary?
