A psychotic is a guy who's just found out what's going on.

William James, philosopher

A psychiatrist is a fellow who asks you a lot of expensive questions your wife asks for nothing

Joey Adams, comedian

The more one analyses people, the more all reasons for analysis disappear. Sooner or later one comes to that dreadful universal thing called human nature.

Laurence J. Peter, writer

Psychiatric expert testimony: mendacity masquerading as medicine.

Thomas Szasz, psychologist

I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.

J.D. Salinger,

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

Samuel Goldwyn, producer

If the nineteenth century was the age of the editorial chair, ours is the century of the psychiatrist's couch.

Marshall McLuhan, philosopher

Analysis does not set out to make pathological reactions impossible, but to give the patient's ego freedom to decide one way or another.

Laurence J. Peter, writer

One should only see a psychiatrist out of boredom.

Muriel Spark, novelist

You go to psychiatrist when your slightly cracked and keep going until you're completely broke.


The difference between a neurotic, a psychotic, and a psychiatrist. The neurotic builds castles in the sky, the psychotic lives in them and the psychiatrist collects the rent.


I myself spent nine years in an insane asylum and I never had the obsession of suicide, but I know that each conversation with a psychiatrist, every morning at the time of his visit, made me want to hang myself, realizing that I would not be able to cut his throat.

Antonin Artaud, dramatist

It is almost impossible to be a doctor and an honest man, but it is obscenely impossible to be a psychiatrist without at the same time bearing the stamp of the most incontestable madness: that of being unable to resist that old atavistic reflex of the mass of humanity, which makes any man of science who is absorbed by this mass a kind of natural and inborn enemy of all genius.

Antonin Artaud, dramatist

Psychoanalysis is an attempt to examine a person's self-justifications. Hence it can be undertaken only with the patient's cooperation and can succeed only when the patient has something to gain by abandoning or modifying his system of self-justification.

Thomas Szasz, psychologist

Psychoanalysis pretends to investigate the Unconscious. The Unconscious by definition is what you are not conscious of. But the Analysts already know what's in it -- they should, because they put it all in beforehand.

Saul Bellow, novelist

The human mind is indeed a cave swarming with strange forms of life, most of them unconscious and unilluminated. Unless we can understand something as to how the motives that issue from this obscurity are generated, we can hardly hope to foresee or control them.

Charles Horton Cooley, sociologist

Psychoanalysis can unravel some of the forms of madness; it remains a stranger to the sovereign enterprise of unreason. It can neither limit nor transcribe, nor most certainly explain, what is essential in this enterprise.

Michel Foucault, historian

Psychoanalysts seem to be long on information and short on application.

Gene Fowler, journalist

The difference between psychiatrists and other mentally disturbed people is something like the relationship between concave and convex madness.

Karl Kraus, writer

Considered in its entirety, psychoanalysis won't do. It's an end product, moreover, like a dinosaur or a zeppelin; no better theory can ever be erected on its ruins, which will remain for ever one of the saddest and strangest of all landmarks in the history of twentieth-century thought.

Sir Peter Medawar,

If you are well off and can afford to spend ten or twenty-five dollars a day to hire some patient soul to listen to your troubles you can be readjusted to the crazy scheme of things and spare yourself the humiliation of becoming a Christian Scientist. You can have your ego trimmed or removed, as you wish, just like a wart or bunion.

Henry Miller, author

Analysis brings no curative powers in its train; it merely makes us conscious of the existence of an evil, which, oddly enough, is consciousness.

Henry Miller, author

Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with some sweet oblivious antidote cleanse the fraught bosom of that perilous stuff which weighs upon the heart?

William Shakespeare, dramatist

A psychiatrist is a man who goes to the Folies-Berg?re and looks at the audience.

Bishop Mervyn Stockwood,

Involuntary mental hospitalization is like slavery. Refining the standards for commitment is like prettifying the slave plantations. The problem is not how to improve commitment, but how to abolish it.

Thomas Szasz, psychologist

If you do not feel equal to the headaches that psychiatry induces, you are in the wrong business. It is work - work the like of which I do not know.

Harry Stack Sullivan, psychologist

There is no fun in psychiatry. If you try to get fun out of it, you pay a considerable price for your unjustifiable optimism.

Harry Stack Sullivan, psychologist

Freud was one of the greatest influences on me. He made myth into psychiatry, and I've been trying to turn it back into myth again.

Ross MacDonald, novelist

Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it.

Alfred Hitchcock, director

The American temptation is to believe that foreign policy is a subdivision of psychiatry.

Henry A Kissinger, diplomat

I don't like psychiatry. I don't believe it works. I believe psychiatrists are neurotic or psychotic, for the most part.

Kirstie Alley, actress

Psychoanalysis cannot be considered a method of education if by education we mean the topiary art of clipping a tree into a beautiful artificial shape. But those who have a higher conception of education will prize most the method of cultivating a tree so that it fulfils to perfection its own natural conditions of growth.

Carl Jung, psychiatrist
