Favorite quotes

If a man does not keep pace with others, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Henry David Thoreau

“The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.”

Erich fromm:

Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.

Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much.

The only truly affluent are those who do not want more than they have.

If I am what I have and if I lose what I have who then am I?

If a person loves only one other person and is indifferent to all others, his love is not love but a symbiotic attachment, or an enlarged egotism.

There is hardly any activity, any enterprise, which is started out with such tremendous hopes and expectations, and yet which fails so regularly, as love.

Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.' Mature love says 'I need you because I love you.'

Man's main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.

Most people die before they are fully born. Creativeness means to be born before one dies.

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.

The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers.

There can be no real freedom without the freedom to fail.

There is only one meaning of life: the act of living itself.

To hope means to be ready at every moment for that which is not yet born, and yet not become desperate if there is no birth in our lifetime.

W. Shakespeare:

''Ko imaš vsega, si tudi slep za vse; ko nimaš nič, takrat šele spregledaš!''

''There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.''

''Pohlepen sem po svobodi, ki izginja, kakor hitro začne človek čezmerno bogateti. Največje razkošje doživljam, kadar sem nekoliko reven.'' Albert Camus

''Nihče ne zna tako sovražiti, kot ljubezenska partnerja oziroma zakonca, ki ne znata ljubiti.''
dr. Marijan Košiček

The more one judges, the less one loves.

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

Every man has three characters - that which he exhibits, that which he has, and that which he thinks he has.

Vsakdo se lahko ujezi - to res ni težko. Toda težko se je ujeziti na pravo osebo, ravno prav, v pravem trenutku, iz pravega razloga in na pravi način. Aristotel, Nikomahova etika

Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it's no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you change nothing. Eckhart Tolle, the power of now
