Yoko Taro
The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.

I think that’s the most important part of doing this job, is learning different personality types. I mean, it’s kind of like sociology or psychology in a sense. With that, and with every project I do, I think I’m able to pull something away that further makes me understand humanity in a way I didn’t before.
Ashton Sanders
There was already a famous Sternberg in psychology and it was obvious there would not be another.
Robert Sternberg
For me, my preference for comedy is grounding it in the psychology of the character, and not just kind of making faces. Even when it’s a crazy character, grounded comedy resonates more with people because it doesn’t look like you’re watching someone do vaudeville. No offense to vaudeville.
Matt McGorry
I was not a great student at the University of Chicago. I think that is – the record will bare me out. But I spent a lot of time reading history, sociology, psychology – reading everything except what I was supposed to read for class the next day.
Bernie Sanders
I was studying psychology honours and was very happy in that zone. I had dreams of pursuing higher education. When the first film happened and another one after that, I was not sure about sticking around in this career. It was never my dream.

The Bible is my sport psychology manual.
Katie Taylor

Jennifer Coolidge
Quick guys get tired; big guys don’t shrink.
Marv Harshman
I was forced to learn a lot about psychology as a player, and as a captain to get the best out of others. There’s still a lot of scepticism about it in sport and the workplace, but dealing with fluctuations of form, and pressure, and being away from home are more important than your cover-drive.
Andrew Strauss
Your power play can win you games, and your penalty killers can save you games.

Dale Jamieson
When it’s only clothes, that is not satisfying enough for me. I don’t think I could do this for 10, 20 years if that was all. It also has to be about a psychology or a mentality or a concept.
Raf Simons
If men were the automatons that behaviorists claim they are, the behaviorist psychologists could not have invented the amazing nonsense called ‘behaviorist psychology.’

I started to read as obsessively about Star Wars as I once did about Kant – and still do about behavioral economics and behavioral psychology.
Cass Sunstein

Lilly Singh
I took up French boys and wine and I studied psychology.
Joely Fisher

Ralph Fiennes
Perhaps the truest axiom in baseball is that the toughest thing to do is repeat.
Walter Alston
Each of us can manifest the properties of a field of consciousness that transcends space, time, and linear causality.

One of the aspects I like about the film is that there is a kind of emotional, psychological discussion during the storytelling, … Before taking a drug, go through yourself, experience yourself, all your hopes and fears in your own time. Before the pharmacology, do the psychology.
Keanu Reeves
With our mad lust for Uniformity and a Higher Standard of Living and Expanding Markets, we go to a country like Afghanistan and cruelly try to jerk her forward two thousand years in two decades, giving no thought to the profound shock this must be to her national psychology.

Daniel Goleman
Most of my life, I wanted to be a therapist, but then I just decided that I didn’t want to be in charge of giving people advice. I want to know everything there is to know about psychology. But a therapist? No.
Gabourey Sidibe
The singular point of beautiful objects, and people, is that they are experienced not as parts, or ratios between cheekbones and chin, but as wholes. The experience of beauty is a perception, but it is one that mixes up various other sensations and makes them converge in a particular way.
Charles Jencks
There is no such thing as a successful defense.
George S. Patton
I had a terrible fear of not being normal – of not seeming normal. So I went to the library and read every psychology book I could find. Anything about how normal people behave.

I love the psychology versus math and logic. In algebra, “X” means any possible variable. I sort of think about “X” in terms of the equation of my own life. Adding “X” to my own life has given me a freedom that I didn’t have before in the equation of my own existence.
Allie X
People often say that aesthetics is a branch of psychology. The idea is that once we are more advanced-all the mysteries of art-will be understood by psychological experiments. Exceedingly stupid at this idea is, this is roughly it.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
The process of acting is no different [playing human or ape]. You’re embodying the character. You’re creating the psychology and the physicality. You’re living the moment.
Andy Serkis
Think about the physical act of pulling a trigger. The amount of pressure it takes to pull a trigger or the speed it takes to shove a sharp object into somebody. The psychology behind it. Why people kill? Why people don’t kill?
Milo Ventimiglia
It’s my belief that, since the end of the Second World War, psychology has moved too far away from its original roots, which were to make the lives of all people more fulfilling and productive, and too much toward the important, but not all-important, area of curing mental illness.
Martin Seligman
I was in an interdisciplinary major – which was a new thing then – which was psychology, sociology, anthropology, and biology, which is really sort of the study of the human being.
Stephen A. Schwarzman

Dale Jamieson
The smaller the detail the greater the value.

Alex Gaskarth
The animal kingdom exhibits a series of mental developments which may be regarded as antecedents to the mental development of man, for the mental life of animals shows itself to be throughout, in its elements and in the general laws governing the combination of the elements, the same as the mental life of man.
Wilhelm Wundt
Walt Disney was a master of the human psychology. His sense of timing, sense of speed. In a sense, those cartoons are like Rorschach tests.
Twyla Tharp
With the adult ones, I feel I need to get as deep inside the psychology of a character as I can, and that needs to be first-person. In the children’s books, I feel I need some distance. I don’t want to be the nine-year-old at the center of the story. I need to have some type of narrative voice.
John Boyne
Neurosis is no worse than a bad cold; you ache all over, and it’s made you a mess, but you won’t die from it.
Mignon McLaughlin
I think psychology would be an easy transition and figuring out the human mind somehow.
Wilmer Valderrama
‘Lucha Underground’ is a combination of new psychology, new moves, and a new take on wrestling: an evolution of wrestling. In my opinion, it is entertaining. It is the kind of wrestling I want to watch. It is the kind of stories I want to tell, which is why I intend to be part of it.
John Morrison
What happens if I try to build a life dedicated to avoiding all danger and all unnecessary risk?
Sam Keen
A working detective has no hope of understanding what even experts who devote their lives to the study of criminal psychology can’t figure out.
Mark Fuhrman
Some of my Arcanum bunkmates taught me a card game called dogs-breath. I returned the favor by giving an impromptu lesson in psychology, probability, and manual dexterity. I won almost two whole talents before they stopped inviting me back to their games.
Patrick Rothfuss
I think acting and psychology are both looking at what makes human beings tick. I’ve always found that fascinating.
Courtney Gains
I was a psychology major. I think that definitely helps in general life; I enjoy trying to figure out why people are the way they are.
Bailey Chase
The thing that I really like is psychology. I love the human mind. I love the choices you make based on your experiences and instincts and your development based on such experiences and so I guess that’s why I love acting so much.
Wilmer Valderrama
All that matters on the Chessboard is good moves.
Bobby Fischer
Sometimes players need to gain time on the clock by repeating the position, but most often its purpose is to wear down the opponent psychologically.
Pal Benko
Our job with our digestion is to absorb nutrients and eliminate waste, and to not dwell on the waste – which is my issue with some of the pop American psychology masquerading as Yoga, by the way.
Gary Kraftsow
I hated myself and the world because I had failed to face and accept the limitations of my self and of life. In literature this refusal is called romanticism; in psychology, neurosis.

Charles Mackay
It is certain that the study of human psychology, if it were undertaken exclusively in prisons, would also lead to misrepresentation and absurd generalizations.

Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. We continue to shape our personality all our life. To know oneself, one should assert oneself.

Jonathan Haidt
Maybe one of the most heartening findings from the psychology of pleasure is there’s more to looking good than your physical appearance. If you like somebody, they look better to you. This is why spouses in happy marriages tend to think that their husband or wife looks much better than anyone else thinks that they do.
Paul Bloom
The psychology of committees is a special case of the psychology of mobs.
Celia Green
Psychology is much bigger than just medicine, or fixing unhealthy things. It’s about education, work, marriage – it’s even about sports. What I want to do is see psychologists working to help people build strengths in all these domains.
Martin Seligman
The psyche of the individual is commensurate with the totality of creative energy. This requires a most radical revision of Western psychology.

Now the word-symbols of conceptual ideas have passed so long from hand to hand in the service of the understanding, that they have gradually lost all such fanciful reference.
Wilhelm Wundt
The most prepared are the most dedicated.
Raymond Berry
The scrupulous and the just, the noble, humane, and devoted natures; the unselfish and the intelligent may begin a movement – but it passes away from them. They are not the leaders of a revolution. They are its victims.

Hermann Ebbinghaus
I gleaned more practical psychology and psychiatry from the Bible, than from all other books!

Robert Kuttner
Women don’t have dicks and they don’t want dicks. That amateur psychology crap that women want penises. And they certainly don’t want testicles. Because you know no women in her right mind is going to carry around a bag that she can’t put stuff in.
Bobby Slayton
In psychology, trying to force others to accept the reality of a fake world is called gaslighting. It got its name from the 1944 film ‘Gaslight,’ in which a husband convinces his wife and their neighbors that she is insane.
Heather Cox Richardson
I’ve studied human psychology my whole life.
Betty Buckley
As long as anyone believes that his ideal and purpose is outside him, that it is above the clouds, in the past or in the future, he will go outside himself and seek fulfillment where it cannot be found. He will look for solutions and answers at every point except where they can be found- in himself.
Erich Fromm
Everybody makes mistakes, that’s why they put erasers on pencils
Tommy Lasorda

Malcolm X
Sometimes I think that kids who are given junk food then don’t crave it as adults in the same way. I don’t know. I’m trying to figure out what the psychology is behind it before I have children.
Zoe Lister-Jones
Hence, even in the domain of natural science the aid of the experimental method becomes indispensable whenever the problem set is the analysis of transient and impermanent phenomena, and not merely the observation of persistent and relatively constant objects.
Wilhelm Wundt
Acting for screen is very different from acting on stage, and then obviously when you dance… everything is a physical embodiment. But the discipline is the same approach. You have to take both things seriously; nothing well-crafted is by mistake.
Amanda Schull
Psychology is sometimes called a new science. This is quite wrong. Psychology is, perhaps, the oldest science, and, unfortunately, in its most essential features a forgotten science.
P.D. Ouspensky
We are born of risen apes, not fallen angels.
Robert Ardrey
No ‘mise en scГЁne’ has the right to be repeated, just as no two personalities are ever the same. As soon as a ‘mise en scГЁne’ turns into a sign, a clichГ©, a concept however original it may be, then the whole thing – characters, situation, psychology – become schematic and false.
Andrei Tarkovsky
Sparky’s the only guy I know who’s written more books than he’s read.
Ernie Harwell
I learned about the psychology behind Elektra and that excited me. And then I read the ‘Daredevil’ comics, especially when they met because I wanted to get an understanding of the relationship between Elektra and Matthew.
Elodie Yung
In cricket, there is a lot of psychology in the game, especially if you are watching people who are not top-class.
Garfield Sobers
For me it’s always about first impressions. I trust my instincts. I love to prepare if it’s something that requires training. But I don’t like to prepare the psychology too much. I enjoy the psychology of the character but I work better from a first impression.
Billy Zane
What most entrepreneurs don’t understand is that it isn’t the economy that bursts a bubble, but investor psychology.
Jay Samit
The explanatory power of evolutionary psychology is limitless!
Gad Saad
I know that the United Kingdom is sometimes seen as an argumentative and rather strong-minded member of the family of European nations. And it’s true that our geography has shaped our psychology. We have the character of an island nation – independent, forthright, passionate in defence of our sovereignty.
David Cameron
I’ve got a few tricks when it comes to psychology and stuff.
Frank Shamrock
One of the main tasks of a manager is psychology.
Didier Deschamps
Physiology, in its analysis of the physiological functions of the sense organs, must use the results of subjective observation of sensations; and psychology, in its turn, needs to know the physiological aspects of sensory function, in order rightly to appreciate the psychological.
Wilhelm Wundt
True compassion means not only feeling another’s pain but also being moved to help relieve it.
Daniel Goleman
There’s a common criticism of evolutionary psychology that it’s fatalistic and it dooms us to eternal strife, ‘Why even try to work toward peace if we’re just bloody killer apes and violence is in our genes?’
Steven Pinker
Maturity is the ability to postpone gratification.
Sigmund Freud
The interest in character-driven content over narrative-driven ditto is increasing; that’s why television steps in. Personally, I love it, since psychology and character, really, are my beacons.

In pursuing my fervent goal of relating external stimuli to reports about internal-neural change, we were, paradoxically enough, following the most orthodox tradition in psychology.

Man’s unconscious… contains all the patterns of life and behaviour inherited from his ancestors, so that every human child, prior to consciousness, is possessed of a potential system of adapted psychic functioning.
Carl Jung
A lot of our music came out of a lot of weird psychology and weird emotions. When you play the whole body of work, you get tossed all over the place. It’s not easy listening. It’s not even comfortable to listen to.
Dave Davies
I’d say I dream in Esperanto. Sometimes I remember some dreams in another language, but dreaming in languages no, but figures yes, my psychology is this way.
Pope Francis
If you discovered something that made you tighten inside, you had better try to learn more about it.

Molly Quinn
With Ameen Rihani the matter is diametrically opposite to Alois Musil’s Arabian Desert, in purpose, in point of view and, above all, in personal psychology… I have considerable admiration for Mr. Rihani as a writer, an authentic poet and a philosopher.
William Seabrook
Sometimes, if you want to change a man’s mind, you have to change the mind of the man next to him first.
Megan Whalen Turner
When Stevie and I joined the band, we were in the midst of breaking up, as were John and Christine. By the time Rumours was being recorded, things got worse in terms of psychology and drug use. It was a large exercise in denial – in order for me to get work done.
Lindsey Buckingham
Work hard to make things easier.
Pete Carril
What is left over if I subtract the fact that my arms goes up from the fact that I raise my arm?
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Astrology is assured of recognition from psychology, without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.

Karl Kraus
The coward regards himself as cautious, the miser as thrifty.

There is a whole field of inquiry that has come up in the last 30 or 40 years – some call it sociobiology or evolutionary psychology – relating to where we get our moral sense and why we value the idea of altruism, and locating both answers in behavioral adaptations for the preservation of our genes.
Richard Dawkins
Besides, it is a shame to let yourself grow old through neglect before seeing how you can develop the maximum beauty and strength of body; and you can have this experience if your are negligent, because these things don’t normally happen by themselves.
Because of the womb being a central phenomenon in the feminine body, the whole psychology of woman differs: she is non-aggressive, non-inquiring, non-questioning, non-doubting, because all of those things are part of aggression. She will not take the initiative; she simply waits – and she can wait infinitely.
Cognitive psychology has shown that the mind best understands facts when they are woven into a conceptual fabric, such as a narrative, mental map, or intuitive theory. Disconnected facts in the mind are like unlinked pages on the Web: They might as well not exist.
Steven Pinker
One of the many joys of being an actor is to understand the human psychology.
Manisha Koirala

Emile M. Cioran
Genuine self-acceptance is not derived from the power of positive thinking, mind games or pop psychology. IT IS AN ACT OF FAITH in the God of grace.

Robert Cialdini

Cesar Millan
Att our MIT lab, there are people from diverse backgrounds like architecture, psychology, and philosophy, giving a holistic touch to the creation of any technology we may have in mind.

Albert Camus
Racism does not limit itself to biology or economics or psychology or metaphysics; it attacks along many fronts and in many forms, deploying whatever is at hand, and even what is not, inventing when the need arises.
Albert Memmi

Dmitri Alperovitch
My idea of an agreeable person is a person who agrees with me.
Benjamin Disraeli
I study English literature but my friends are doing psychology and things like that. No one cares about acting there. It’s not competitive and it’s a nice environment for me.
Yasmin Paige
I like developing characters who I find to have interesting psychology. Like politics and sex, but I’m really looking at bigger social problems that interest me, and that I can obsess over for a while.
Mora Stephens
The psychology of sport is so important. When you are standing at the crease, in front of a stadium full of people, it’s a pretty intense experience. So you need to have the psychological tools to control your mind and deliver your best performance.
Jos Buttler
Any skills that I have, I couldn’t really make money with them. I would like to think that maybe I would be doing something in psychology or something of that nature because I love that vein of medicine – the getting down and getting nitty – gritty.
Ian Harding
The psycho-physiological hypothesis is both inductively and deductively the sine qua non of the science of psychology.
Boris Sidis
I used to be and I still am into psychology. I would like to be able to pursue something like that, but I don’t know. The older I’ve gotten, the more endearing this business has become and I can’t really imagine leaving it.
Lindsey Shaw
Beneath the sophistication of Buddhist psychology lies the simplicity of compassion. We can touch into this compassion whenever the mind is quiet, whenever we allow the heart to open.
Jack Kornfield
Now, academics are not always the easiest people to talk to, and the scholarly papers aren’t always the easiest papers to read, but frankly, psychology papers, especially papers and books on terrorism, are very easy to read, and journalists should be reading them.
Masha Gessen
Nothing, in all of the Universe is more delicious than to be in this physical body allowing the fullness that is you to be present in the moment.
Esther Hicks
Academic sociologists have been trained to conceive of their discipline – sociology – as the scientific study of society, and to remit to the sister discipline of psychology the study of individuals.
Richard Wall
Engineers are great at many things. They’re not necessarily great at recognizing basic human psychology.
Grant Imahara
We’re not excusing the ones who are mean, but I want girls to understand the psychology. It’s not in everyone. But the bully needs to put this pain somewhere.
Elizabeth Berkley
Whether life is worth living depends on whether there is love in life.
R. D. Laing
Every season has its peaks and valleys. What you have to try to do is eliminate the Grand Canyon.
Andy Van Slyke
Thought is action in rehearsal.
William Zinsser
What we call ‘normal’ in psychology is really a psychopathology of the average, so undramatic and so widely spread that we don’t even notice it ordinarily.
Abraham Maslow
Oh, I’m a psychology nerd; I love to learn about why people behave the way they do, how experiences influence us.
Aimee Osbourne
It was a culture that business is something bad – it was a leftist-oriented psychology. We have to break this. We are pro-business.
Antonis Samaras
I think the whole of people’s psychology and where they are in life interests me, and the decisions you make that take you on particular journeys to different places.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
When I look at the world I’m pessimistic, but when I look at people I am optimistic.
Carl Rogers
The pseudoscience of astrology has no place in magick. Astrology has already died twice: once with the classical gods, and a second time after the Enlightenment. The complete failure of contemporary psychology to create anything other than a vocabulary of intellectual rubbish has encouraged astrology to resurface.
Peter J. Carroll
I deal with the human psychology and evil. They are my twin issues.
Greg Iles
I like to make them squirm.
Bobby Fischer
My psychology belongs to everyone.
Alfred Adler
We know less about the sexual life of little girls than of boys. But we need not feel ashamed of this distinction; after all, the sexual life of adult women is a ‘dark continent’ for psychology.
Sigmund Freud
People always say golfers don’t smile. But there is so much psychology in golf so we have to be a bit robotic.
Lee Westwood
‘Marnie’ was ahead of its time. People didn’t talk about childhood and its effects on adult life. It was taboo to discuss sexuality and psychology and to put all that into a film was shocking.
Tippi Hedren
This dogma (the soul) has been present in human psychology from earliest antiquity. No one has ever touched the soul, or has seen one in a test tube, or has in any way come into a relationship with it as he has with the other objects of his daily experience.
John B. Watson
Body and soul are not two different things, but only two different ways of perceiving the same thing. Similarly, physics and psychology are only different attempts to link our experiences together by way of systematic thought.
Albert Einstein
I published in 1978 a report on dreams in the Journal of Clinical Psychology. It was the first study of its kind to demonstrate that it is possible for people to make constructive use of their dreams to improve their lives.
Henry Reed
Repeated psychology tests have proven that telling someone your goal makes it less likely to happen.
Derek Sivers
I know enough to know that no woman should ever marry a man who hated his mother.
Martha Gellhorn
I’m fairly confident that if I died tomorrow, Don would find a way to preserve me until the season was over and he had time for a nice funeral.
Don Shula
I went to Macalester in Minnesota to study social psychology, the study of why people do what they do. I was really looking at race, population, gender, and how we psychologically function in a way that affects our societal outcomes around those issues.
Danai Gurira
The good life is best construed as a matrix that includes happiness, occasional sadness, a sense of purpose, playfulness, and psychological flexibility, as well autonomy, mastery, and belonging.
Robert Biswas-Diener
If you know a little bit the psychology of human beings, you have to understand that if you say something you should not do, then everybody wants to do it.
Marjane Satrapi
Within the new self-help books for women, patriarachy and male domination are rarely identified as forces that lead to the oppression, exploitation, and domination of women. Instead, these books suggest that individual relationships between men and women can be changed solely by women making the right choices.
Bell Hooks
I’m interested in psychology and how your surroundings can influence your character, and because of that, I think I try and take the very best from a situation, good or bad, and constantly work on myself.
Mia Goth
We can’t win against obsession. They care, we don’t. They win.
Douglas Adams
I printed a list of Irish names from the Internet and my husband, Dave, saw Finley on the list. I really liked it but didn’t want to scare Dave off with my enthusiasm. So I used a little reverse psychology and let him think it was his idea.
Holly Marie Combs
Social media is about sociology and psychology more then technology.
Brian Solis
I did plays because I liked plays. I studied psychology because I was fascinated by the subject, and I hope to keep doing films because I love the medium.
Jim Sarbh
Check your testosterone levels. Every study on evolutionary psychology has correlated testosterone levels with dominance.
Mike Cernovich
I think psychology and self-reflection is one of the major catastrophes of the twentieth century.
Werner Herzog
If I want to know how we learn and remember and represent the world, I will go to psychology and neuroscience. If I want to know where values come from, I will go to evolutionary biology and neuroscience and psychology, just as Aristotle and Hume would have, were they alive.
Patricia Churchland
When you get a group of kids together, especially boys, the psychology of those kids requires that they find a weak kid or a sensitive kid or a soft kid.
Wil Wheaton
The aim was simple: to deprive Karpov of his favourite occupation – standing at the board, staring straight at his opponent. While I was wearing these glasses, all he could admire was his own reflection.
Viktor Korchnoi
I think that moral philosophy is useful for framing questions, but terrible at answering them. I think moral psychology is booming right now, and we’re making a lot of progress on understanding how we actually work, what our moral nature is.
Jonathan Haidt
Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not.
Carl Jung
Life is teleology par excellence; it is the intrinsic striving towards a goal, and the living organism is a system of directed aims which seek to fulfill themselves.
Carl Jung
Psychology is the science of the act of experiencing, and deals with the whole system of such acts as they make up mental life.
Samuel Alexander
must acknowledge, that to act properly is much more valuable than to think justly or reason acutely.
Thomas Reid
The more healthy relationships a child has, the more likely he will be to recover from trauma and thrive. Relationships are the agents of change and the most powerful therapy is human love.
Bruce D. Perry
The hardest thing in leadership is managing your own psychology, and yet it’s also the least talked about.
Andy Dunn
Success is that place in the road where preparation meets opportunity.
Branch Rickey
Any experienced player knows how a change in the character of the play influences your psychological mood.
Garry Kasparov
But I majored in Drama, modified with Psychology.
Rachel Dratch
It is the shortcomings of game theory (as originally formulated) which force the consideration of the role of ethics, of the dynamics of social structure, and of social structure and of individual psychology in situations of conflict.
Anatol Rapoport
Guys like Samoa Joe, no matter what it’s been, what promotion, every time we are in the ring there is such an easy storytelling and psychology in there. We always had good matchups.
Austin Aries
Marnie was ahead of its time. People didn’t talk about childhood and its effects on adult life. It was taboo to discuss sexuality and psychology and to put all that into a film was shocking.
Tippi Hedren
Senses empower limitations, senses expand vision within borders, senses promote understanding through pleasure.
Dejan Stojanovic
The very moment you understand that being a Muslim and being American or European are not mutually exclusive, you enrich your society. Promote the universal principles of justice and freedom, and leave the societies elsewhere to find their model of democracy based on their collective psychology and cultural heritage.
Tariq Ramadan
Certain people give off positive energy, others negative. It’s the quality of someone’s being, a measure of the love with which they’ve led their lives. It also reflects the inner work they’ve done, their efforts to heal anger, hatred, or self-loathing, which poison us like toxic fumes.
Judith Orloff
Vegas has the Whitman’s Sampler of audiences. They come from all different places, so you have to do some crowd psychology. You have to find the heartbeat of the room. It doesn’t shift my jokes, but it shifts my timing and my attention.
Hal Sparks
All human behavior has a reason. All behavior is solving a problem.
Michael Crichton
The Christ-symbol is of the greatest importance for psychology in so far as it is perhaps the most highly developed and differentiated symbol of the self, apart from the figure of the Buddha.
Carl Jung
Just as the science and art of agriculture depend upon chemistry and botany, so the art of education depends upon physiology and psychology.
Edward Thorndike
Theatre is not supposed to represent psychology but passions, which is totally different. Its role is to represent the soul’s different emotional states, and those of the mind, the world history.
Ariane Mnouchkine
All our behaviours are a result of neurophysiological activity in the brain. There is no reason to believe there is any magic going on.
Steven Pinker
My stories are warnings; they’re not predictions. If they were predictions, I wouldn’t do them. Because then I’d be part of the doom-ridden psychology. But every time I name a problem, I try to give a solution.
Ray Bradbury
True eloquence consists in saying all that should be said, and that only.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
Carl Jung
Italy was a surprise in my life. I went there just to make money and then go back to Israel and study psychology. The arts wasn’t something I grew up with or thought I could be part of.
Moran Atias
Those emotive theorists who said that the function of moral utterance was to evince emotion would… have been correct if they had substituted the indefinite for the definite article.
Alasdair MacIntyre
Naturally, the psychological susceptibility of a match participant is significantly higher than a participant in a tournament, since each game substantially changes the over-all position.
Mikhail Tal
Both the Freudian and the Platonic metaphors emphasize the considerable independence of and tension among the constituent parts of the psyche, a point that characterizes the human condition.
Carl Sagan
I am trying to beat the guy sitting across from me and trying to choose the moves that are most unpleasant for him and his style.
Magnus Carlsen
Psychology is ultimately mythology, the study of the stories of the soul.
James Hillman
I trained in psychiatry in the 1970s, and much of our training was about what was then psychoanalytic theory, with a little bit of theory from Jungian psychology and a few other places.
Thomas R. Insel
Perhaps our teachings seem less religious and more technical, like psychology, so they are easier for secular people to use.
Dalai Lama
You’ve got to get obsessed and stay obsessed.
John Irving
Idleness is the beginning of all psychology. What? Could it be that psychology is ? a vice?
Friedrich Nietzsche
Child psychology and animal psychology are of relatively slight importance, as compared with the sciences which deal with the corresponding physiological problems of ontogeny and phylogeny.
Wilhelm Wundt
Nature may be as selfishly studied as trade. Astronomy to the selfish becomes astrology; psychology, mesmerism (with intent to show where aour spoons are gone); and anatomy and physiology become phrenology and palmistry.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The body is to be compared, not to a physical object, but rather to a work of art.
Maurice Merleau-Ponty
I think any role you need to play not so much transforms but I like to think of it as understanding the psychology of another character.
Hugo Weaving
Years of research in psychology has shown that rewards and punishments can be very effective in changing behavior. But, at the same time, they can create an addiction to rewards and punishments.
Barry Schwartz
There are a lot of movies about women’s psychology, I think almost all of them are directed by men. I mean they all really spoke to me and are amazing movies, but I feel like there’s something that they don’t understand even if they do a great job.
Sophia Takal
The question of manuscript changes is very important for literary criticism, the psychology of creation and other aspects of the study of literature.
Umberto Eco
Mental synthesis of psychic content in the unity of a moment-consciousness is a fundamental principle of psychology.
Boris Sidis
We should open ourselves to the impossible and embrace a psychology of possibility.
Ellen Langer
In chess, as in life, a man is his own most dangerous opponent.
Vasily Smyslov
Such being the nature of mental life, the business of psychology is primarily to describe in detail the various forms which attention or conation assumes upon the different levels of that life.
Samuel Alexander
It has never been in my power to study anything, mathematics, ethics, metaphysics, gravitation, thermodynamics, optics, chemistry, comparative anatomy, astronomy, psychology, phonetics, economics, the history of science, whist, men and women, wine, metrology, except as a study of semeiotic .
Charles Sanders Peirce
Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you.
Carl Jung
This is a hump you have to get over, and it usually comes in the first series. You get over the hump and you’re on a roll.
Al Arbour
I did psychology at university, but I wouldn’t say that my music is too influenced by it. The way I make music is a little more to do with an emotional connection. When I compose the melodies for my tracks, it always comes from the heart.
Part of my preparation for the World Champion match against Kasparov was to be ready for his off-board tactics. I did not to react to them at all. Once you start thinking about these things during the game, even analysing them, you’re caught.
Vladimir Kramnik
How bold one gets when one is sure of being loved.
Sigmund Freud
I’m a terrible sleeper because I work all the time. I stay up late almost every night working, whether it’s on a TV or live show. I come up with new ideas, do research, watch loads of TED talks, or find psychology articles.
Keith Barry
No refining of one’s taste in matters of art or literature, no sharpening of one’s powers of insight in matters of science or psychology, can ever take the place of one’s sensitiveness to the life of the earth. This is the beginning and the end of a person’s true education.
John Cowper Powys
Anatomy presupposes a corpse; psychology presupposes a world of corpses.
D. H. Lawrence
There is no masculine psychology in my cinema. There is only the resentments and desires of women. A man should not attempt to recognize himself in my male characters. On the other hand, he can find [in the films] a better understanding of women. And knowledge of the other is the highest goal.
Catherine Breillat
With ‘Before We Die,’ the psychology of the characters and their relationships with one another was key.
Lesley Sharp
Evolution is an indispensable component of any satisfying explanation of our psychology.
Steven Pinker
The younger generation is vibrant with a new psychology; the new spirit is awake in the masses . . . Each generation . . . will have its creed.
Alain LeRoy Locke
Part of the reason of being an actor is you like playing other people’s lives and exploring all the psychologies in that and the emotions.
Nicole Kidman
Immature love says: ‘I love you because I need you.’ Mature love says ‘I need you because I love you.’
Erich Fromm
There are as many archetypes as there are typical situations in life. Endless repetition has engraved these experiences into our psychic constitution, not in the forms of images filled with content, but at first only as forms without content, representing merely the possibility of a certain type of perception and action.
Carl Jung
There’s a lot of psychology involved in my work, a lot of mind play going on when you try and convince someone to feel good about their bodies and have the confidence to walk down a catwalk naked when, initially at least, it’s probably the last thing they’d plan to do.
Gok Wan
I had planned to be a psychology major, but I bombed introductory psychology.
Robert Sternberg
Jake Roberts started in Mid-South as a referee. We’re pretty close, and we come from the same school of thought when it comes to the psychology of wrestling.
Ted DiBiase Sr.
Neither woman nor man lives by work, or love, alone … The human self defines itself and grows through love and work: All psychology before and after Freud boils down to that.
Betty Friedan
For any performer who’s coming up, if they really want to test their psychology and how they handle themselves on stage, then coming to the U.K. as a whole is a wonderful place for that.
Beth Hart
I was never ignorant, as far as being experienced in classrooms and learning about different subjects and actually soaking it up, so I checked into college for a little bit. I took classes at a community college in West L.A. I took psychology, English, and philosophy.
Nipsey Hussle
I learned much more about acting from philosophy courses, psychology courses, history and anthropology than I ever learned in acting class.
Tim Robbins
If your opponent offers you a draw, try to work out why he thinks he’s worse off
Nigel Short
Essentially, what the most important questions we can ever ask ourselves are, “Who am I? Who are we all? What do we share, and what is our purpose here? How do we discover meaning?” Addressing these questions is the core of Inspirational Psychology.
Lee L Jampolsky
My first undertaking in the way of scientific experiment was in the field of economics and psychology.
Simon Newcomb
I’d always been interested in psychology.
Morrie Schwartz
All of us are much more human than otherwise
Harry Stack Sullivan
I am embarrassed to admit what drew me to psychology. I didn’t want to go to medical school. I was getting good grades in psychology and I was charismatic and people in the psychology department liked me. It was as low a level as that.

Ram Dass
Psychoanalysis can provide a theory of ‘progress,’ but only by viewing history as a neurosis.
Norman O. Brown
The model of the educational Kalila Wa-Dimna. These are books of instruction to rulers and humans. The stories unfold a range of human psychology, a vast range of human psychology. The Sultan is being moved from his narrow and bigoted position into a wider, more subtle, more nuanced understanding of human experiences.
Marina Warner
Postmodernists believe that truth is myth, and myth, truth. This equation has its roots in pop psychology. The same people also believe that emotions are a form of reality. There used to be another name for this state of mind. It used to be called psychosis.
Brad Holland
Positive psychology is both a movement and a science. The movement involves absolutely anyone who is interested in evidence-based approaches to improving well-being, either for themselves or for their community. I invite you to join this movement!
Barbara Fredrickson
I’ve always been curious about the psychology of the person behind the mask. When someone is anonymous, it opens the door to all kinds of antisocial behavior, as seen by the Ku Klux Klan.
Philip Zimbardo
PR is a mix of journalism, psychology, and lawyering – it’s an ever-changing and always interesting landscape.
Ronn Torossian
Statistically after six months, if an Indigenous or non-Indigenous person has come off welfare, even long-term welfare, and has stuck in that’s job for six months, then they’ve really broken in their own psychology the welfare reliance mentality. They’re up on their own two feet.
Andrew Forrest
I would say both Western psychology and Eastern paths would recognize that we get caught up in feeling like a separate self and an unworthy self.
Tara Brach
More succinctly put, Inspirational Psychology offers ways to live, learn about, and practice love.
Lee L Jampolsky
He said, ‘Gosh, Dad, that mean’s we’re not going to any more bowl games.’
Jim Colletto
Winning is a great deodorant.
John Madden
A person may be greedy, envious, cowardly, cold, ungenerous, unkind, vain, or conceited, but behave perfectly by a monumental act of the will.
Thomas Nagel
There is a secret psychology of money. Most people don’t know about it. That’s why most people never become financially successful. A lack of money is not the problem; it is merely a symptom of what’s going on inside of you.
T. Harv Eker
We invent what we love and what we fear.
John Irving
Story is far older than the art of science and psychology, and will always be the elder in the equation no matter how much time passes.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
In no case may we interpret an action [of an animal] as the outcome of the exercise of a higher psychical faculty, if it can be interpreted as the outcome of the exercise of one which stands lower in the psychological scale.
C. Lloyd Morgan
People used to trust their doctor. They went to an expert. Now people have new ideas and are thinking for themselves. That’s a very important change in our collective psychology.
James Hillman
Now he’s miserable and depressed.
David Frost
Play like dreams serves the function of self realization.
Donald Woods Winnicott
There are some people you like immediately, some whom you think you might learn to like in the fullness of time, and some that you simply want to push away from you with a sharp stick.
Douglas Adams
In fact, it is Shakespeare who gives us the map of the mind. It is Shakespeare who invents Freudian Psychology. Freud finds ways of translating it into supposedly analytical vocabulary.
Harold Bloom
The worst thing that can happen to a good teacher is to get a bad conscience about her profession because she feels herself hopeless as a psychologist.
William James
One finds limits by pushing them.
Herbert Simon
Blame is the cowards way out.
Elvin Hayes
A mistake which is commonly made about neurotics is to suppose that they are interesting. It is not interesting to be always unhappy, engrossed with oneself, malignant and ungrateful, and never quite in touch with reality.
Cyril Connolly
Modern psychology has pointed to the need of educating people to use a much larger portion of the mind. Transcendental meditation fulfills this need. And it can be taught very easily.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
People think you must be crackers if you’ve got a psychologist but psychology is part of the building bricks to make a top athlete.
David James
It appears evident, therefore, that those actions only can truly be called virtuous, and deserving of moral approbation, which the agent believed to be right, and to which he was influenced, more or less, by that belief.
Thomas Reid
Recognizing the structure of your psychology doesn’t mean that you can easily rebuild it.
Dean Koontz
People can cry much easier than they can change, a rule of psychology people like me picked up as kids on the street.
James A. Baldwin
There’s a very different kind of psychology going on in the fashion scene than in art. When artists connect to a system because they want to make a living, it’s their own choice. In fashion, designers don’t have that choice.
Raf Simons
The outlines of the needed psychology of becoming can be discovered by looking within ourselves; for it is knowledge of our own uniqueness that supplies the first, and probably the best, hints for acquiring orderly knowledge of others.
Gordon W. Allport
To talk about religion except in terms of human psychology is an irrelevance.
Aldous Huxley
In every physical action, unless it is purely mechanical, there is concealed some inner action, some feelings. This is how the two levels of life in a part are created, the inner and the outer. They are intertwined. A common purpose brings them together and reinforces the unbreakable bond.
Constantin Stanislavski
The buying of a self-help book is the most desperate of all human acts. It means you’ve lost your mind completely: You’ve entrusted your mental health to a self-aggrandizing twit with a psychology degree and a yen for a yacht.
Cynthia Heimel
I’ve found that contemporary psychology enrages me with its simplistic ideas of human life, and also its emptiness.
James Hillman
I prefer things that are private, so I love recording and I love making films, as a filmmaker, because it uses every bit of what you have experienced or know, whether it’s graphics composition, decorating, psychology, storytelling, or whatever it is. It’s a wonderful thing.
Barbra Streisand
Astronomy says: the sun will rise tomorrow,
Zoology says: on rainbow-fish and lithe gazelle,
Psychology says: but first it has to be night, so
Biology says: the body-clocks are stopped all over town
History says: here are the blankets, layer on layer, down and down.
Albert Goldbarth
If you want to understand entrepreneurs, you have to study the psychology of the juvenile delinquent. They don’t have the same anxiety triggers that we have.
Abraham Zaleznik
The systematic experimental study of reproducible errors of human reasoning, and what these errors reveal about underlying mental processes, is known as the heuristics and biases program in cognitive psychology. This program has made discoveries highly relevant to assessors of global catastrophic risks.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
To lose sensibility, to see what one sees,
As if sight had not its own miraculous thrift,
To hear only what one hears, one meaning alone,
As if the paradise of meaning ceased
To be paradise, it is this to be destitute.
Wallace Stevens
I’m afraid the parenting advice to come out of developmental psychology is very boring: pay attention to your kids and love them.
Alison Gopnik
A Separation Cosmology produces a Separation Psychology, a psychological viewpoint that says that I am over here and you are over there.
Neale Donald Walsch
Something that always fascinated me was the psychology and the psychology differences between men and women and how we relate to one another.
Karrine Steffans
People forget that Mozart wrote for commissions. There’s a thing in psychology where they think if it’s popular, it can’t be serious.
Anthony Hopkins
Ah! The strength of women comes from the fact that psychology cannot explain us. Men can be analyzed, women…merely adored.
Oscar Wilde
Technology will mirror the culture and the psychology creating it. We need new psychological scaffolding to work with. Less fear and more optimism.
Gray Scott
Psychology is a bus that accompanies an airplane.
Karl Kraus
You must not let your opponent know how you feel.
Alexander Kotov
The Fundamentalist Religions simply seem to offer more hope for a brighter future than do the more liberal, humanistic ones.
Martin Seligman
Age is not based on chronology, but psychology.
Tony Robbins
It is instructive, although somewhat disheartening, for the ardent advocate of a purely scientific psychology to contrast the practice and theories of his colleagues with those of the students of the principal physical sciences.
George Trumbull Ladd
In Psychology we deal with minds and their processes, and leave out of account as far as possible the objects that we get to know by means of them.
Charles D. Broad
I noticed when I was at Stanford, there was a class called the persuasive technology design class, and it was a whole lab at Stanford that teaches students how to apply persuasive psychology principles into technology to persuade people to use products in a certain way.
Tristan Harris
I think Shakespeare really got it. He was the first one to introduce psychology to villains and give them a real point of view.
Oscar Isaac
I think Buddhism should open the door of psychology and healing to penetrate more easily into the Western world.
Thich Nhat Hanh
I’m getting my psychology degree with a focus on marriage and family therapy.
Danielle Fishel
Always have a plan and believe in it. I tell my coaches not to compromise. Nothing good happens by accident.
Chuck Knox
I sometimes lie, especially about personal things, because what does it matter? I am a kind of minute commodity. My name is no longer my own. I try to lie as much as I can when I’m interviewed. It’s reverse psychology. I figure if you lie, they’ll print the truth.
River Phoenix
I think politics and personal psychology and interrelationships – these things are interrelated to me and overlap.
J. Robbins
Every bad feeling is potential energy toward a more right way of being if you give it space to move toward its rightness
Eugene Gendlin
I’ve kind of got an out in cancer. It keeps things in perspective for me.
Eric Shanteau
It is a truism of epistolary psychology that, for example, a Christmas thank-you note written on December 26 can say any old thing, but if you wait until February, you are convinced that nothing less than Middlemarch will do.
Anne Fadiman
There is a long list of psychology research demonstrating that appearances matter more than most us would care to admit. As shallow as it may be, better-looking people have been shown in various studies to have higher self-esteem and more charisma, are considered more trustworthy and are better negotiators.
Andrew Ross Sorkin
Psychology is important but motivation is something that if you don’t have it inside then you can’t provide it.
Diego Simeone
Where’s your sketch pad?” I asked. … “I gave that up,” Kay said. “I wasn’t very good, so I changed my major.” “To what?” “To pre-med, then psychology, then English lit, then history.” “I like a woman who knows what she wants.” Kay smiled. “So do I, but I don’t know any.
James Ellroy
The restriction of studies of human intellect and character to studies of conscious states was not without influence on a scientific studies of animal psychology.
Edward Thorndike
It is the ‘zoomorphic’ or ‘rattomorphic’ fallacy – the expressed or implicit contention that there is no essential difference between rat and man – which makes American psychology so profoundly disturbing.
Ludwig von Bertalanffy
I feel really ambiguous about the psychology of people trying to do good in the world.
Alexei Sayle
Depression is the inability to construct a future.
Rollo May
Know what Freud wrote in his diary when he was 77? “What do women want? My God, what do they want?” Fifty years this giant brain spends analyzing women. And he still can’t find out what they want. So this makes him the world’s greatest expert on female psychology?
Clare Boothe Luce
I kind of stumbled into acting, even though I’ve always been fascinated by people and kind of their motives, and it’s been amazing to me, everything I read before about psychology, philosophy, just to put it into practice somehow.
Adan Canto
The aim of Positive Psychology is to catalyze a change in psychology from a preoccupation only with repairing the worst things in life to also building the best qualities in life.
Martin Seligman
My selective memory of what drinking was like told me that standing at the bar in a pub, on a summer’s evening with a long, tall glass of lager and lime was heaven, and I chose not to remember the nights on which I had sat with a bottle of vodka, a gram of coke and a shotgun, contemplating suicide.
Eric Clapton
Habituation is indeed a fact of human psychology. That’s one reason we like novelty, including different cuts of jeans.
Virginia Postrel
History is nothing but a problem of mechanics applied to psychology.
Hippolyte Taine
Social psychology is especially interested in the effect which the social group has in the determination of the experience and conduct of the individual member.
George Herbert Mead
As a chess player one has to be able to control one’s feelings, one has to be as cold as a machine.
Levon Aronian
Opportunities change, strategies change, but people and psychology do not change. If trend-following systems don’t work well, something else will. There’s always money being lost, so someone out there has to win.
Gil Blake
By combining elements such as hypnosis, magic, neurolinguistic programming and psychology, I can make it appear that I can hack into people’s brains.
Keith Barry
The science of logic never made a man reason rightly, and the science of ethics never made a man behave rightly. The most such sciences can do is to help us to catch ourselves up and check ourselves, if we start to reason or to behave wrongly; and to criticise ourselves more articulately after we have made mistakes.
William James
When children are allowed to help make family decisions, they tend to be much more supportive and happier with family life. Also when allowed to help make rules, they will follow them much closer than if rules are forced on them. All these add up to a happier home for all.
Rudolf Dreikurs
I never got to study psychology after leaving school at 15 but I know how to rationalise things and get the best out of myself.
Ian Poulter
Psychology is the description of the reflection of the terrestial world in the heavenly plane, or, more correctly, the description of a reflection such as we, soaked as we are in our terrestial nature, imagine it, for no reflection actually occurs, only we see earth wherever we turn.
Franz Kafka
Whether science-and indeed civilization in general-can long survive depends upon psychology, that is to say, it depends upon what human beings desire.
Bertrand Russell
No discovery of modern psychology is, in my opinion, so important as its scientific proof of the necessity of self-sacrifice (or discipline) to self-realization and happiness.
Henry C. Link
I would like to be an FBI profiler. I’m fascinated with psychology, but I wouldn’t want to deal with people and their problems in my office. I like to figure them out from afar, narrow a case down, figure it out, but it sounds like a lot of science.
Kathleen Madigan
I wanted to be a counselor or social worker. That’s one of the reasons I was a psychology major.
Mazie Hirono
With regard to how I chose Pacifica, my story is interesting. I did not go to Pacifica to specifically become a therapist. I went to Pacifica to study Jungian psychology and archetypes and mythology and there were many different programs there.
Kelly Carlin-McCall
Psychology assumes that “things” are and “minds” are; and that, within certain limits determined by the so-called “nature” of both, they act causally upon each other.
George Trumbull Ladd
Persuasiveness takes finesse; it takes an understanding of human psychology. And intention is everything.
Amanda de Cadenet
My degree was in Depth Psychology and Religion, so I can really speak directly about pop American psychology masquerading as Yoga.
Gary Kraftsow
Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they’re finished. The person you are right now is as transient, as fleeting and as temporary as all the people you’re ever been. The one constant in our lives is change.
Daniel Gilbert
Studying neuro-linguistic programming is what teaches you how to implant and extract thoughts. Mixing psychology, hypnotism and magic somewhat goes into this area called mentalism, which is what I mostly do. It’s magic of the mind.
Keith Barry
If there are quarrels between the parents or if their marriage is unhappy, the ground will be prepared in their children for the severest predisposition to a disturbance of sexual development or to neurotic illness.
Sigmund Freud
Colorless green ideas sleep furiously.
Noam Chomsky
I read as many books about the psychology of a psychopath as I could and I researched what exactly happens to soldiers.
Patrick Heusinger
The primary problem in the psychology of becoming is to account for the transformation by which the unsocialized infant becomes an adult with structured loves, hates, loyalties, and interests, capable of taking his place in a complexly ordered society.
Gordon W. Allport
The amount of psychology which is necessary to all teachers need not be very great.
William James
The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises.
Sigmund Freud
It’s all in the mind.
George Harrison
When you’re in your early 20s, a lot of characters can be one or two dimensional. You want a role to substantiate the drama, as opposed to actually analyzing the psychology of a human being. That’s what drew me to acting, particularly the contradictions in people.
Tom Hughes
I have discovered the value of psychology and psychiatry, that their teachings can undo knots in us and permit life to flow again and aid us in becoming more truly human.
Jean Vanier
A particular train of thought persisted in, be it good or bad, cannot fail to produce its results on the character and circumstances. A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances.
James Allen
No matter what the world thinks about religious experience, the one who has it possesses a great treasure, a thing that has become for him a source of life, meaning, and beauty, and that has given a new splendor to the world and to mankind.
Carl Jung
Psychology, as the behaviorist views it, is a purely objective, experimental branch of natural science which needs introspection as little as do the sciences of chemistry and physics…. The position is taken here that the behavior of man and the behavior of animals must be considered in the same plane.
John B. Watson
The psychology of fashion is interesting because we’re selling people something they don’t really need. We’re just selling them something that makes them feel good. Besides, there is nothing really new in fashion. Everything worth doing has been done before.
Leon Max
Social psychology has found the more you reward people for doing something, the more they tend to lose interest in whatever they had to do to get the reward.
Alfie Kohn
All I know is I have a job here as long as I win.
Toe Blake
Daniel Dennett is our best current philosopher. He is the next Bertrand Russell. Unlike traditional philosophers, Dan is a student of neuroscience, linguistics, artificial intelligence, computer science, and psychology. He’s redefining and reforming the role of the philosopher.
Marvin Minsky
It is easier to understand mankind in general than any individual man.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Nature does nothing without a purpose. In children may be observed the traces and seeds of what will one day be settled psychological habits, though psychologically a child hardly differs for the time being from an animal.
You must know for yourself, directly, the truth of yourself and you cannot realize it through another, however great. There is no authority that can reveal it.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
I have studied psychology and practised as well, that helps me read auras, minds and silence too at times.
Koena Mitra
In civilized life, where the happiness, and indeed almost the existence, of man depends so much upon the opinion of his fellow men, he is constantly acting a studied part.
Washington Irving
Thanos came to me while I was taking a psychology class in college after coming out of the service; the ol’ Thanos/Eros concept.
Jim Starlin
A man that will take back a move at Chess will pick a pocket
Richard Fenton
The idea of applying psychology or behavioural sciences to communication is not a new one. It’s very old behavioural economics. If it gives you some additional insights – so be it.
Alexander Nix
Love can make you turn on yourself, and it can do harmful things to you. It’s a deep lesson in human psychology, as with many of the stories. Anyways, that’s just an example of one of the most wicked women in the Nights.
Marina Warner
If you could get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.
David Viscott
Clothing and makeup and hair and all of that so much indicates the kind of person you are inside and the person you are presenting on the outside. Sometimes they are in conflict, and sometimes they are the same. That psychology of the exterior informing the interior is just so interesting.
Tatiana Maslany
Enter into children’s play and you will find the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet.
Virginia Axline
I find contemporary Holocausts against other species so unbearable as to make life itself a fundamental question mark. Are we a demonic, suicidal species? Can good conquer evil? And if so, when will that renaissance of virtue occur? This is truly “psychology today.”
Michael Tobias
Seeing that the Senses cannot decide our dispute, being themselves full of uncertainty, we must have recourse to Reason; there is no reason but must be built upon another reason: so here we are retreating backwards to infinity.
Michel de Montaigne
The best wrestlers, whether its a Hulk Hogan or a Rey Mysterio, are the ones who have psychology and can understand this business.
Hulk Hogan
Idleness is the parent of psychology.
Friedrich Nietzsche
My research career has been devoted to understanding human decision-making and problem-solving processes. The pursuit of this goal has led me into the fields of political science, economics, cognitive psychology, computer science and philosophy of science, among others.
Herbert A. Simon
I’ve had an enduring appreciation of psychology.
Phillip Lopate
You know how it is when you go to be the subject of a psychology experiment and nobody else shows up and you think maybe that’s part of the experiment? I’m like that all the time.
Steven Wright
You can’t overestimate the importance of psychology in chess, and as much as some players try to downplay it, I believe that winning requires a constant and strong psychology not just at the board but in every aspect of your life.
Garry Kasparov
By far the most difficult skill I learned as a C.E.O. was the ability to manage my own psychology. Organizational design, process design, metrics, hiring and firing were all relatively straightforward skills to master compared with keeping my mind in check.
Ben Horowitz
Our culture is steeped in positive thinking – from the self-help mega-industry to college courses in positive psychology to the enduring pull of the American dream. There is no dislike button on Facebook. Nobody wants to be a downer.
Suleika Jaouad
Good photographs aren’t just complex. They are enigmatic. Images are beguiling. And the way they play into our psychology, into our visual cortex, is something we still don’t understand.
Stuart Franklin
Seeing ourselves as others see us would probably confirm our worst suspicions about them.
Franklin P. Adams
The ideal of a pure phenomenology will be perfected only by answering this question; pure phenomenology is to be separated sharply from psychology at large and, specifically, from the descriptive psychology of the phenomena of consciousness.
Edmund Husserl
I think the reason Buddhism and Western psychology are so compatible is that Western psychology helps to identify the stories and the patterns in our personal lives, but what Buddhist awareness training does is it actually allows the person to develop skills to stay in what’s going on.
Tara Brach
Tyler Breeze! He is so amazing. He taught me so much about psychology when I was in NXT; he helped me so much with my matches with Eva Marie or Asuka.
Child psychology and child psychiatry cannot be reformed. They must be abolished.
Thomas Szasz
There were mornings when I just didn’t want to get out of bed. But once again, I’m in an adverse situation and having to deal with something new and learn how to do it.
Picabo Street
Normativity, I believe, is very different from motivating force. Neither includes, or implies, the other. Other animals can be motivated by their desires and beliefs. Only we can understand and respond to reasons.
Derek Parfit
Beauty is something everybody longs for, needs, and tries to obtain in some way – whether through nature, or a man or a woman, or music, or whatever. The soul yearns for it. Psychology seems to have forgotten that.
James Hillman
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson
There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.
William Shakespeare
You can’t avoid being an egotistical person and ultimately somewhat narcissistic. You can try to curb it by recognizing that behavior. But at the same time, your repetitive behavior has its own psychology, and it’s impossible to get out of that.
Jeff Baena
The kids who need the most love will ask for it in the most unloving ways
Russell Barkley
The human race has to be bad at psychology; if it were not, it would understand why it is bad at everything else.
Celia Green
I want to be some kind of a pilot. And the other thing that I really like is psychology.
Wilmer Valderrama
Design, to me, is part psychology, part sociology, and part magic. A good decorator should know what’s going on in someone’s marriage and how their kids are doing in school.
Nate Berkus
I want to get back to education. When I was in college I paid attention to child psychology portions of our psychology classes. I watch other people work with babies. And I saw the baby as developing like a computer and it intrigued me in my life. I wanted to do that.
Steve Wozniak
I buy so much when I go through airports: I buy psychology magazines; I buy ‘Mind,’ another magazine, ‘New Scientist,’ ‘Scientific America.’
Keith Barry
Physics has never been a comfortable subject for human psychology. The desire to regard everything outside the human race’s purview as insignificant, and everything within that purview as firmly under the control of tribal myth and custom, is as strong today as it was in the time of Galileo.
Celia Green
I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than on the opinions of others.
Marcus Aurelius
Maybe one of the qualities of being a great coach is being [a jerk]. There are quite a few of them around.
Larry Robinson
Sports psychology or mental training has been viewed as a weakness, and I think that’s a pretty silly way to look at it.
Jake Arrieta
For me, it’s very easy to write a horror movie that’s just a succession of scary sequences, but it’s hard to find horror movies that have a genuine theme to them that are really exploring some aspect of our psychology and our fears.
Ehren Kruger
A goalkeeping unit is different from outfield; the psychology is different.
Robert Green
I think the future of psychotherapy and psychology is in the school system. We need to teach every child how to rarely seriously disturb himself or herself and how to overcome disturbance when it occurs. In that sense, psychotherapy belongs in the schools.
Albert Ellis
Religion is an illusion and it derives its strength from the fact that it falls in with our instinctual desires.
Sigmund Freud
Even championship-winning teams don’t play well all the time.
Teddy Sheringham
As an advice columnist, I spend a lot of time reading through psychology journals to ensure that I give the most up-to-date advice.
Amy Dickinson
Before I became a film major, I was very heavily into social science, I had done a lot of sociology, anthropology, and I was playing in what I call social psychology, which is sort of an offshoot of anthropology/sociology – looking at a culture as a living organism, why it does what it does.
George Lucas
There is a law in psychology that if you form a picture in your mind of what you would like to be, and you keep and hold that picture there long enough, you will soon become exactly as you have been thinking.
William James
I’ve got two undergraduate degrees: one is a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy and a Master’s in Psychology. I’m gunning for my Ph. D. in Psychology but that’s currently on hold.
Xavier Woods
only a thin partition separates the psychically normal from the diseased.
Helene Deutsch
I’d like to be for cinema what Shakespeare was for theatre, Marx for politics and Freud for psychology: someone after whom nothing is as it used to be.
Rainer Werner Fassbinder
There’s so many great things I learned at Mizzou. I took a sports psychology class. It was kind of eye-opening on certain different ways to look at things.
Max Scherzer
Science has destroyed even the refuge of the inner life. What was once a sheltering haven has become a place of terror
Carl Jung
The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.
Stanley Milgram
My name is Matthew Walker, I am a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, and I am the author of the book ‘Why We Sleep.’
Matthew Walker
A wonderful discovery, psychoanalysis. Makes quite simple people feel they’re complex.
S. N. Behrman
I fantasise about what the future could be in terms of aesthetic and psychology. It’s the most difficult thing to do because you have to start from the past – your favourite architect, your favourite song – you take it all with you.
Raf Simons
Physiological psychology is, therefore, first of all psychology.
Wilhelm Wundt
I had a prodigious life, living in a grown-up world when I was a child. But I think my abilities were about perceptiveness, and they were about examining psychology and examining people and relationships.
Jodie Foster
You know that saying ‘A little knowledge is a dangerous thing’? That’s so true of positive psychology. Our latest research tells us that the pursuit of happiness is a delicate art. Certain approaches to seeking happiness are now known to backfire, whereas others are effective.
Barbara Fredrickson
I never thought I would write an autobiography, probably because my first novel, Go Now, is really all drawn from my life, even though it’s more about the psychology going on.
Richard Hell
I believe that people want to be free. And that we face an enemy that murders innocent people to try to shake our psychology to get us to leave.
George W. Bush
Noir focuses on the criminal mind, not a whodunit: more why they did it and will they get away with it. The abnormal psychology is what fascinates me rather than the puzzle-solving aspect.
Allan Guthrie
Popular psychology is a mass of cant, of slush and of superstition worthy of the most flourishing days of the medicine man.
John Dewey
To me it seems that those sciences are vain and full of error which are not born of experience, mother of all certainty, first-hand experience which in its origins, or means, or end has passed through one of the five senses.
Leonardo da Vinci
The fork is the most powerful tool ever placed in our hands.
John Robbins
I’ve always been a dreamer…or let’s just say I kept my options open. In my heart, I knew singing was gonna be in my future, but I considered psychology, hairdressing, banking, teaching, acting, modeling, aviation, and philanthropy. I just didn’t know I’d pretty much be doing all of these things eventually!
We get letters a few times a year from people that write papers on the show. You know, like, ‘Oh, my psychology or my cultural studies class – this is my term paper.’ Somebody wrote it as their thesis, about the social experiment of the show, because the show is a reflection of what’s going on in culture.
James Murray
The computer takes up where psychoanalysis left off. It takes the ideas of a decentered self and makes it more concrete by modeling mind as a multiprocessing machine.
Sherry Turkle
I actually went to the university as a psychology major, and at orientation, they took us around the campus and took us to the theater for a skit. At the end of the skit, I literally could not get up out of my seat.
Joe Morton
My interest in the psychological roots of psychosis has both personal (my brother Andrew committed suicide) and professional origins (I was trained in a behaviorist approach to psychology which – whatever its limitations – at least taught me to see human behavior in its social context).
Richard Bentall
Liberals have invented whole college majors – psychology, sociology and women’s studies – to prove that nothing is anybody’s fault.
P. J. O’Rourke
Yearning is the word that best describes a common psychological state shared by many of us, cutting across boundaries of race, class, gender, and sexual practice.
Bell Hooks
‘Transparent’ was huge for me when I first saw it. I felt that, from an authorial point of view, no one was trying to sell characters to us, you know? It’s the idea of not having to adore these characters and want to cuddle them; you just have to be into them and their psychology and be compelled by them.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Back in the old-school days when I learned back in the ’60s, the psychology of our business back in those days was totally different than the psychology of the young kids today. They’re rushed. They don’t have their timing down. Us old-school guys, we’d go 30 minutes, 45 minutes, an hour.
Jimmy Snuka
The Russian leaders are keen judges of human psychology, and as such they are highly conscious that loss of temper and of self-control is never a source of strength in political affairs.
George F. Kennan
In 1946, I re-enrolled at the University of Budapest in order to obtain a Ph.D. in philosophy with minors in sociology and in psychology.
John Harsanyi
Some find that very optimistic people have benign illusions about themselves. These people may think they have more control, or more skill, than they actually do. Others have found that optimistic people have a good handle on reality. The jury is still out.
Martin Seligman
I have not thought too much about the psychology or life of the character Jonas in some time.
Corin Nemec
It is important that you don’t let your opponent impose his style of play on you. A part of that begins mentally. At the chessboard if you start blinking every time he challenges you then in a certain sense you are withdrawing. That is very important to avoid.
Viswanathan Anand
If you have urgent current expenses to cover, then future priorities like college and retirement fall off your radar because they are simply less pressing. Scarcity of attention prevents us from seeing what’s really important. The psychology of scarcity engrosses us in only our present needs.
Sendhil Mullainathan
Embodied courage chooses not to wait until illness or notice of death demands attention.
Jack Kornfield
People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates.
Thomas Szasz
The mystic purchases a moment of exhilaration with a lifetime of confusion; and the confusion is infectious and destructive. It is confusing and destructive to try and explain anything in terms of anything else, poetry in terms of psychology.
Basil Bunting
Logical positivists have never taken psychology into account in their epistemology, but they affirm that logical beings and mathematical beings are nothing but linguistic structures.
Jean Piaget
Ethics, politics and psychology are all far more difficult to understand now that we know the depths to which human nature can sink.
Ephraim Mirvis
To look for a single general theory of how to decide the right thing to do is like looking for a single theory of how to decide what to believe.
Thomas Nagel
History, sociology, economics, psychology et al. confirmed Joyce’s view of Everyman as victim.
Robert Anton Wilson
Attempts to construct an ethic from the rules of evolution, or from psychology and sociology, end up being simply inadequate.
Pope Benedict XVI
‘Freakonomics’ began with a ‘N.Y. Times Magazine’ profile I wrote about Steve Levitt. I was working on a book about ‘the psychology of money,’ and since Levitt’s an economist, my editor thought I’d be the guy to write about him. Fact is that Levitt has almost no interest in either psychology or money.
Stephen J. Dubner
If you approach Billy Martin right, he’s Okay. I avoid him altogether.
Ron Guidry
The universe stands aside for those people who know where they are going.
Paulo Coelho
No matter where or what, there are makers, takers, and fakers.
Robert A. Heinlein
I couldn’t sleep for two years, they tried to break my nerves. They used a lot of psychology to brainwash.
Mordechai Vanunu
Whenever I decided to release a guy, I always had his room searched first for a gun. You couldn’t take any chances with some of them birds.
Casey Stengel
Let us not have a computer psychology that makes us think we know it all. All answers on computers – but no surprises. The challenge of love. God reveals himself through surprises.
Pope Francis
I’m trying to broaden the scope of positive psychology well beyond the smiley face. Happiness is just one-fifth of what human beings choose to do.
Martin Seligman
No man ever reached to excellence in any one art or profession without having passed through the slow and painful process of study and preparation.
If I don’t know I don’t know, I think I know. If I don’t know I know I know, I think I don’t know.
R. D. Laing
I don’t believe in psychology.
Bobby Fischer
The outlines of the needed psychology of becoming can be discovered by looking within ourselves; for it is knowledge of our own uniqueness that supplies the first, and probably the best, hints for acquiring orderly knowledge of others.
Gordon Allport
Since I was a young wrestling fan, I’ve been fascinated by super heavyweights and was always amazed at Yokozuna’s amazing grace and agility. How could a man who was so large still remain so athletic and retain perfect in-ring timing and spot-on psychology?
Jim Ross
MOST LIES succeed because no one goes through the work to figure out how to catch them.
Paul Ekman
I was just fascinated with the brain and the mind, and I found psychology engaging for writing about people, and that fed into my interest in cinema.
Eoin Macken
When dissonance is present, in addition to trying to reduce it, the person will actively avoid situations and information which would likely increase the dissonance.
Leon Festinger
By studying psychology i want to be a better actor. There’s something about studying body language and non-spoken emotion – I know the innate response. But to really study it like a science would be fun.
Shia LaBeouf
Policy makers, like most people, normally feel that they already know all the psychology and all the sociology they are likely to need for their decisions. I don’t think they are right, but that’s the way it is.
Daniel Kahneman
If rehearsed eye-rolls and sneers and armchair psychology worked, and were interesting, Fox wouldn’t be number one.
Dagen McDowell
Psychology cannot tell people how they ought to live their lives. It can however, provide them with the means for effecting personal and social change.
Albert Bandura
… on the right occasion a bold choice of opening can unnerve even the most steely opponent.
Neil McDonald
If you can eliminate the yelling and listen to the message, there’s a great message there.
Joey Galloway
I got into psychology simply because that’s what my sister did, and I grew up in a family that was very like, follow your sister’s footsteps. I went to the same school she went to, did the same degree she did … really had no interest in it, to be honest.
Lilly Singh
Children?have no use for psychology.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
Without psychology, the horror film doesn’t exist.
Dario Argento
I don’t believe in psychology. I believe in good moves
Bobby Fischer
I’m fascinated with psychology, and with why a person walks the way they walk or why they walk into a room the way they do or why we are the way we are, and it’s not exclusive to the psychology of a character.
Tatiana Maslany
The object is evident in the name of the discipline. Similarly, theology (theologia) is the study of God. The object of theology is not the church’s teaching or the experience of pious souls. It is not a subset of ethics, religious studies, cultural anthropology, or psychology. God is the object of this discipline.
Michael Horton
People who are aware of, and ashamed of, their prejudices are well on the road to eliminating them.
Gordon Allport
Let the credulous and the vulgar continue to believe that all mental woes can be cured by a daily application of old Greek myths to their private parts.
Vladimir Nabokov
A neurotic is a man who builds a castle in the air. A psychotic is the man who lives in it. A psychiatrist is the man who collects the rent.
Jerome Lawrence
There is an increasingly pervasive sense that one age is over and a new one is beginning – in business, in politics, in science, in psychology.
Marianne Williamson
The old metaphysical prejudice that man ‘always thinks’ has not yet entirely disappeared. I am myself inclined to hold that man really thinks very little and very seldom.
Wilhelm Wundt
I was now at a university in New York, a professor of existential psychology with the not inconsiderable thesis that magic, dread, and the perception of death were the roots of motivation.
Norman Mailer
Positive people are able to maintain a broader perspective and see the big picture which helps them identify solutions where as negative people maintain a narrower perspective and tend to focus on problems.
Barbara Fredrickson
Reality denied comes back to haunt.
Philip K. Dick
I just enjoy it and drive as fast I can. But so many people think your psychology is such a massive thing. For me, it’s not necessary.
Max Verstappen
I wanted to be a neurologist. That seemed to be the most difficult, most intriguing, and the most important aspect of medicine, which had links with psychology, aggression, behavior, and human affairs.
Roger Bannister
It is because the public are a mass inert, obtuse, and passive that they need to be shaken up from time to time so that we can tell from their bear-like grunts where they are and also where they stand. They are pretty harmless, in spite of their numbers, because they are fighting against intelligence.
Alfred Jarry
Since psyche and matter are contained in one and the same world, and moreover are in continuous contact with one another and ultimately rest on irrepresentable, transcendental factors, it is not only possible but fairly probable, even, that psyche and matter are two different aspects of the same thing.
Carl Jung
I went through so many things personally, emotionally and mentally during that time off that I know that I’m better for it now and I think I’m a better athlete because of that.
Libby Trickett
[R]eason is… given to us as a practical faculty, that is, as one that influences the will.
Immanuel Kant
For my victory over Capablanca I am indebted primarily to my superiority in the field of psychology. Capablanca played, relying almost exclusively on his rich intuitive talent. But for the chess struggle nowadays one needs a subtle knowledge of human nature, an understanding of the opponent’s psychology.
Alexander Alekhine
Legal discrimination between the sexes is, in almost every instance, founded on outmoded views of society and the pre-scientific beliefs about psychology and physiology. It is time to sweep away these relics of the past and set further generations free of them.
Shirley Chisholm
I think the best thing you can do with a ‘Superman’ game is to kind of explore the psychology of what it would be like to be a person who slowly begins to realize that he can’t save everybody.
Cory Barlog
The psychology of brutality was worse than the beatings.
John Blair
Evolutionary psychology offers a parsimonious framework for understanding which domains are likely to yield sex differences and, if so, in which direction.
Gad Saad
I am trained as a psychologist, and I think of all human issues in terms of psychology, neuroscience, genetics, and evolutionary theory.
Howard Gardner
A psychology degree doesn’t get you very far.
Jerry Bruckheimer
The secret to the movie business, or any business, is to get a good education in a subject besides film – whether it’s history, psychology, economics, or architecture – so you have something to make a movie about. All the skill in the world isn’t going to help you unless you have something to say.
George Lucas
Far from being a psychological trait, the spirit of revenge is the principle on which our whole psychology depends.
Gilles Deleuze
There should be a new way to record standings in this league; one column for wins, one for losses and one for gifts.
Gene Mauch
I studied psychology, history, and religion. I was a heady girl, but frankly, I’m glad I studied those subjects because a lot of that has really helped me as an actress.
Adrienne C. Moore
Life calls us forth to independence, and anyone who does not heed this call because of childish laziness or timidity is threatened with neurosis. And once this has broken out, it becomes an increasingly valid reason for running away from life.
Carl Jung
I really like to discover a new culture, a new country, a new rhythm of living. I really, really like that. I think that’s the most enriching thing, for my nature, because I like the psychology of people.
Audrey Tautou
Like the sea itself, the unconscious yields an endless and self-replenishing abundance of creatures, a wealth beyond our fathoming.
Carl Jung
Are you saying that the assistant had the answers all along, he just wasn’t telling anyone?
Jim Valvano
A talent is formed in stillness, a character in the world’s torrent.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Part of my success was rooted in psychology.
Ricky Steamboat
Heaven and hell are not geographical, they are psychological, they are your psychology.
Hence, wherever we meet with vital phenomena that present the two aspects, physical and psychical there naturally arises a question as to the relations in which these aspects stand to each other.
Wilhelm Wundt
But having a really good understanding of history, literature, psychology, sciences – is very, very important to actually being able to make movies.
George Lucas
One of my first paid gigs was writing psychology quizzes for ‘YM,’ a monthly teen magazine like ‘Seventeen.’
K. A. Applegate
I think what Bob Shiller and I are doing is we’re focusing on macroeconomics and the role of psychology in macroeconomics.
George Akerlof
Within Inspirational Psychology, health doesn’t refer to just the state of the body, but also the state of the mind, which affects the body.
Lee L Jampolsky
You almost need a psychology degree to be a manager these days. Even with Fabio Capello – who may not have done too well with England – you could tell why he had been so successful in the past. He had real authority.
Jermaine Jenas
Questioning our own motives, and our own process, is critical to a skeptical and scientific outlook. We must realize that the default mode of human psychology is to grab onto comforting beliefs for purely emotional reasons, and then justify those beliefs to ourselves with post-hoc rationalizations.
Steven Novella
It is only the fundamental conceptions of psychology which are of real value to a teacher.
William James
Consciousness… I think we should think of it as something we do.
Alva Noe
A diet counselor once told me that all overweight people are angry with their mothers and channel their frustrations into overeating. So I guess that means all thin people are happy, calm, and have resolved their Oedipal entanglements.
Wendy Wasserstein
I’ve explained before the power psychology has on the markets.
Trish Regan
It is an accepted commonplace in psychology that the spiritual level of people acting as a crowd is far lower than the mean of each individual’s intelligence or morality.
Christian Lous Lange
The brain is wider than the sky.
Emily Dickinson
Evolutionary psychology tells us that men, especially powerful men, feel invincible and entitled to spread their seed, and that women can’t resist the scent of masculine power. Women, by contrast, are said to be more altruistic and collaborative, seeking power so that they can share it with others.
Hanna Rosin
Lack of forgiveness causes almost all of our self-sabotaging behavior.
Mark Victor Hansen
The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.
Michel de Montaigne
Our problem, from the point of view of psychology and from the point of view of genetic epistemology, is to explain how the transition is made from a lower level of knowledge to a level that is judged to be higher.
Jean Piaget
I’ve never studied psychology.
Hayao Miyazaki
Nowadays grandmasters no longer study their opponent’s games so much, but they study his character, his behaviour and his temperament in the most thorough fashion.
David Bronstein
One of the problems with studies that examine the effects of violent imagery is that they typically use mentally healthy psychology students. If you want to do a meaningful study, show movies like Body Double and Copycat to a group of sexual psychopaths the day before you release them.
Park Dietz
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t draw on my undergraduate background in psychology.
Geoffrey Canada
The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.
Inspirational Psychology includes the practical application of identifying the thoughts and mistaken beliefs that cause us pain, along with a contemplative practice to discover our true nature, which is Love.
Lee L Jampolsky
Interestingly, human irrationality is a hot topic in economics at the moment. Behavioural economics it’s called, on the cusp of economics and psychology.
Evan Davis
If you aren’t following your bliss, there is a discrepancy in your psychology that needs to be healed, it needs to be mended.
Christopher Rice
The psychic depths are nature, and nature is creative life.
Carl Jung
When you say ‘no’ and you get on the streets and you do an act of civil disobedience, it changes your psychology.
Gail Bradbrook
It is one of the aims of linguistics to define itself, to recognise what belongs within its domain. In those cases where it relies upon psychology, it will do so indirectly, remaining independent.
Ferdinand de Saussure
Everything is interconnected. The moment you take philosophy, psychology, religion and business and look at the underlying commonalities, that’s when you start looking at business in a different way.
Jochen Zeitz
By activating an expansive, tolerant, and creative mindset, positive feelings maximize the social, intellectual, and physical benefits that will accrue.
Martin Seligman
Love is that micro-moment of warmth and connection that you share with another living being
Barbara Fredrickson
Bashful=Spanish, Miss Gardenia Doc=Psychology, Mr. Wang Happy=Chemistry 2, Mr. Durbin Dopey=English Lit., Mr. Purcell Dippy=Math, Mrs. Craig Dumbass=PE, Coach Crater
Lisa McMann
A large part of the popularity and persuasiveness of psychology comes from its being a sublimated spiritualism: a secular, ostensibly scientific way of affirming the primacy of “spirit” over matter.
Susan Sontag
Running is a good example of the link between fitness and psychology. I have found an easy way to enjoy running by focusing on 5k runs – they are long enough to get your heart going but not so long that you get bored.
Jos Buttler
I love to prepare if it’s something that requires training. But I don’t like to prepare the psychology too much.
Billy Zane
The psychology of adultery has been falsified by conventional morals, which assume, in monogamous countries, that attraction to one person cannot coexist with affection for another. Everybody knows that this is untrue.
Bertrand Russell
Mysteries and thrillers are not the same things, though they are literary siblings. Roughly put, I would say the distinction is that mysteries emphasize motive and psychology whereas thrillers rely more heavily on action and plot.
Jon Meacham
The psychopathology of the masses is rooted in the psychology of the individual
Carl Jung
Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim.
Tyler Knott Gregson
Whenever you hear anyone talking about a cultural or even about a human problem, you should never forget to inquire who the speaker really is. The more general the problem, the more the person will smuggle his or her own personal psychology into the account he or she gives of it.
Carl Jung
Today the function of psychiatry, psychology and psychoanalysis threatens to become the tool in the manipulation of man.
Erich Fromm
I actuall have to defend realism in theatre because I think TV does it badly – so corrupted by layers of bureaucrats who want to leave examination or psychology.
Theresa Rebeck
Choices, more choices than we like afterward to believe, are made far backward in the innocence of childhood.
Loren Eiseley
exile … might be the largest new state created by the twentieth century and the psychology of the twenty-first century.
Phyllis Chesler
Men go to far greater lengths to avoid what they fear than to obtain what they desire.
Dan Brown
Psychology is a science, and teaching is an art; and sciences never generate arts directly out of themselves.
William James
I understand the psychology of the business. I understand who I am and I know how I interact with other people, but that’s a gift, the storytelling. Not everybody has that gift and it’s kind of like the way I work.
Ted DiBiase Sr.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Albert Einstein
I’ve always been fascinated by people, their psychology, what drives them and trying to understand them.
Adan Canto
According to Buddhist psychology most of our troubles stem from attachment to things that we mistakenly see as permanent.
Dalai Lama
A lot of narrative films leave you no space for anything else but eating popcorn. I want to go in the complete opposite direction. I have to evacuate all psychology, to be less a protagonist and more a presence.
Elia Suleiman
Psychology must postulate uniformity of interrelation of physical, physiological, and psychic processes.
Boris Sidis
Well, I’m not sure what pop psychology is, but I don’t like it.
Phil McGraw
In the cosmology that’s behind psychology, there is no reason for anyone to be here or do anything.
James Hillman
I originally studied medicine in order to be a physiologist, but I drifted into psychology and philosophy from a sort of fatality. I never had any philosophic instruction, the first lecture on psychology I ever heard being the first I ever gave.
William James
A hurt is at the center of all addictive behaviors. . . . The wound may not be as deep and the ache not as excruciating, and it may even be entirely hidden—but it’s there. As we’ll see, the effects of early stress or adverse experiences directly shape both the psychology and the neurobiology of addiction in the brain
Gabor Mate
It’s roughly the case that if systems become too complex to study in sufficient depth, physics hands them over to chemistry, then to biology, then experimental psychology, and finally on to history. Roughly. These are tendencies, and they tend to distinguish roughly between hard and soft sciences.
Noam Chomsky
Psychology is a very unsatisfactory science.
Wolfgang Kohler
Modern psychology teaches that experience is not merely the best teacher, but the only possible teacher.. There is no war between theory and practice. The most valuable experience demands both, and the theory should supplement the practice and not precede it.
Charles Kettering
I’m somebody who’s super into psychology and analysis and the human psyche and the human experience.
Gaby Hoffmann
Don’t become a mere recorder of facts, but try to penetrate the mystery of their origin.
Ivan Pavlov
I was hedging my bets by the time I got to college. I was interested in drama and journalism and psychology.
Hank Azaria
When well-being comes from engaging our strengths and virtues, our lives are imbued with authenticity.
Martin Seligman
Psychology is as important as substance. If you treat people with respect, they will go out of their way to accommodate you. If you treat them in a patronizing way, they will go out of their way to make your life difficult.
Mohamed ElBaradei
If you cannot be at ease with yourself when alone, you will seek a relationship to cover up your unease. You can be sure that the unease will then reappear in some other form within the relationship, and you will probably hold your partner responsible for it.
Eckhart Tolle
I got a bit obsessed with the whole English language and was writing journals and poetry. I’ve always been intrigued about psychology and philosophy and how people’s minds work.
Lara Pulver
I’m a psychologist. I was a psychology faculty member, and then I became an administrator of the department, then the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. At the time of the presidential search, I was the dean.
I. King Jordan
Interior decorating is a rock-hard science compared to psychology practiced by amateurs.
Antonin Scalia
The psychology of education is all about how the society gets benefited from it.
All around us, aspects of the modern world – diet, exercise, medicine, art, work, family, philosophy, economics, ecology, psychology – have begun a long circle back toward their former coherence. Whether they can arrive before the natural world is damaged beyond repair and madness destroys humanity, we cannot tell.
Paul Shepard
An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way.
Charles Bukowski
You know what ? Certain people think they will feel good if certain things happen The trick is : you have to feel good for no reason
Richard Bandler
Although I do use some of my psychology training in comedy, but it’s more like pop psychology, not a course of treatment or anything. To me, it’s more like social intelligence.
Matt Walsh
One cleans someone else’s threshold of consciousness only if one’s own home is dirty.
Karl Kraus
There are only two kinds of coaches – those who have been fired, and those who will be fired.
Ken Loeffler
I like problems at the borders of disciplines. One of the reasons that neurobiology of learning and memory appeal to me so much was that I liked the idea of bringing biology and psychology together.
Eric Kandel
The great thing about behavioural psychology and economics is that they help us to see that there are actually pretty good reasons why human beings swing from greed to fear, and why we’re not really calculating machines or utility-maximisers.
Niall Ferguson
My dream was to study psychology in Israel. It’s a long journey – it’s seven years of study.
Moran Atias
The states of consciousness are all that psychology needs to do her work with. Metaphysics or theology may prove the Soul to exist; but for psychology the hypothesis of such a substantial principle of unity is superfluous.
William James
More may have been learned about the brain and the mind in the 1990s – the so-called decade of the brain – than during the entire previous history of psychology and neuroscience.
Antonio Damasio
One of the embarrassing facts from social psychology is that most stereotypes are true, in the only sense that stereotypes are ever true: on average.
J. Michael Bailey
Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.
William James
Design is a way of life, a point of view. It involves the whole complex of visual communications: talent, creative ability, manual skill, and technical knowledge. Aesthetics and economics, technology and psychology are intrinsically related to the process.
Paul Rand
The two main hazards of psychoanalysis: that it might fail, and that if it succeeds, you’ll never be able to forgive yourself for all those wasted years.
Mignon McLaughlin
If I wasn’t an actor, I would probably be writing or doing something with psychology.
Maddie Hasson
I received a Master’s degree in 1991 in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University.
Christine Blasey Ford
Play him, fine him, and play him again.
Gene Mauch
I never personalize anything because I think that can be dangerous. For me, the best way is – this may sound pretentious – but its to breathe the character and get into the psychology of it.
Imogen Poots
As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know.
Carl Jung
Our evolutionary psychology preconditions us not to respond to threats which can be postponed until later.
Mark Lynas
The dynamic of revolutionary events is directly determined by swift, intense, and passionate changes in the psychology of classes which have already formed themselves before the revolution.
Leon Trotsky
When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.
Viktor E. Frankl
The task of physiological psychology remains the same in the analysis of ideas that it was in the investigation of sensations: to act as mediator between the neighbouring sciences of physiology and psychology.
Wilhelm Wundt
There is nothing wrong with trying to exploit the natural human tendency to become impatient when forced to play a boring position.
Pal Benko
We have lost the art of living, and in the most important science of all, the science of daily life, the science of behavior, we are complete ignoramuses. We have psychology instead.
D. H. Lawrence
Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology.
James Carville
Every intellectual revolution which has ever stirred humanity into greatness has been a passionate protest against inert ideas. Then, alas, with pathetic ignorance of human psychology, it has proceeded by some educational scheme to bind humanity afresh with inert ideas of its own fashioning.
Alfred North Whitehead
Physiological psychology, on the other hand, is competent to investigate the relations that hold between the processes of the physical and those of the mental life.
Wilhelm Wundt
Minds that are ill at ease are agitated by both hope and fear.
I studied psychology in school, and the best psychology is in literature. It’s so much easier to understand a character than a theory. You can recognize yourself—or other people—in a different way.
Natalie Portman
Positivity psychology is part and parcel of psychology. Being human includes both ups and downs, opportunities and challenges. Positive psychology devotes somewhat more attention to the ups and the opportunities, whereas traditional psychology – at least historically – has paid more attention to the downs.
Barbara Fredrickson
Energy is always a matter of psychology for every individual.
Miriam Defensor-Santiago
The white man is not inherently evil, but America’s racist society influences him to act evilly. The society has produced and nourishes a psychology which brings out the lowest, most base part of human beings.
Malcolm X
There is a sociology of horses, as well as a psychology. It is most evident in the world of horse racing, where many horses are gathered together, where year after year, decade after decade, they do the same, rather simple thing – run in races and try to win.
Jane Smiley
The study of crippled, stunted, immature, and unhealthy specimens can yield only a cripple psychology and a cripple philosophy
Abraham Maslow
I have been working with people on an individual basis for years to help them break habits and deal with anxiety. I’ve helped people with everything from fears, phobias, and stress right the way through to eczema – anything that is governed by our psyche and inner psychology.
Keith Barry
The general statement that the mental faculties are class concepts, belonging to descriptive psychology, relieves us of the necessity of discussing them and their significance at the present stage of our inquiry.
Wilhelm Wundt
Positivity opens us. The first core truth about positive emotions is that they open our hearts and our minds, making us more receptive and more creative.
Barbara Fredrickson
I became completely obsessed with the Royal family, or at least the psychology behind them.
Vanessa Kirby
Understanding the psychology of changing norms starts from a simple insight: although we may wish to be perfectly rational and impartial, bias is an inescapable part of what it means to be human.
Maria Konnikova
By the first week of shooting, you know exactly where your film is heading based on the psychology of your director.
Jodie Foster
Peter Kropotkin was surely on the left. He was one of the founders of what is now called ‘sociobiology’ or ‘evolutionary psychology’ with his book Mutual Aid, arguing that human nature had evolved in ways conducive to the communitarian anarchism that he espoused.
Noam Chomsky
I never personalize anything because I think that can be dangerous. For me, the best way is – this may sound pretentious – but it’s to breathe the character and get into the psychology of it.
Imogen Poots
Ocean rowing is very much what you make it. Rowing technique is pretty irrelevant on the ocean. It’s the psychology that’s important.
Roz Savage
Don’t get so stuck in your ways that you can’t change.
Sam Walton
Radical acceptance rests on letting go of the illusion of control and a willingness to notice and accept things as they are right now, without judging.
Marsha M. Linehan
I can’t think of anyone who is up on evolutionary psychology and related areas who is deluded enough to be called a utopian.
Keith Henson
When you appreciate the good, the good appreciates.
Tal Ben-Shahar
And I think the female creative urge is intrinsically biologically linked to our ability to give birth to a child, even if we’ve never… I’ve never given birth, but I feel like it’s part of our psychology.
Zoe Kazan
He’s turned his life around. He used to be depressed and miserable.
David Frost
The purpose of psychology is to give us a completely different idea of the things we know best.
Paul Valery
No psychologist should pretend to understand what he does not understand… Only fools and charlatans know everything and understand nothing.
Anton Chekhov
Psychology and acting are very closely linked. It’s just about studying people and how they work. It can be an incredible discipline and exercise.
Claire Danes
The distinguishing characteristics of mind are of a subjective sort; we know them only from the contents of our own consciousness.
Wilhelm Wundt
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own.
Albert Ellis
From the viewpoint of analytic psychology, the theatre, aside from any aesthetic value, may be considered as an institution for the treatment of the mass complex.
Carl Jung
Nietzsche himself was a great moralist; his writings abound with value judgments about individuals, character types, modes of thinking, and national traits. It is as if he develops immoralist psychology in order to tame his own nature, to keep his own greatest vice in check.
John Carroll
Realise that your dreams of financial independence have already come true on the mental plane, by the time you desire them or become aware of them.
Catherine Ponder
Whenever there is a simple error that most laymen fall for, there is always a slightly more sophisticated version of the same problem that experts fall for.
Amos Tversky
Grounded in the natural philosophy of the Middle Ages, alchemy formed a bridge: on the one hand into the past, to Gnosticism, and on the other into the future, to the modern psychology of the unconscious.
Carl Jung
Investing is an activity of forecasting the yield over the life of the asset; speculation is the activity of forecasting the psychology of the market.
John Maynard Keynes
I think the future of psychotherapy and psychology is in the school system. We need to teach every child how to rarely seriously disturb himself or herself and how to overcome disturbance when it occurs.
Albert Ellis
While pursuing my Bachelors with Psychology in Sophia College, I auditioned for an advertisement for Fairever Face Cream. And to my surprise I was selected amongst the top contestant, which paved a way for me to take this profession sincerely.
Amrita Rao
To know psychology, therefore, is absolutely no guarantee that we shall be good teacher.
William James
I like purple too. I looked up color psychology before doing any house painting, because I was curious what the colors I like mean. And purple is very royal and creative.
Paul Dano
Like all science, psychology is knowledge; and like science again, it is knowledge of a definite thing, the mind.
James Mark Baldwin
I believe psychology has done very well in working out how to understand and treat disease. But I think that is literally half-baked. If all you do is work to fix problems, to alleviate suffering, then by definition you are working to get people to zero, to neutral.
Martin Seligman
Every winner needs to master three essential components of trading; a sound individual psychology, a logical trading system and good money management. These essentials are like three legs of a stool – remove one and the stool will fall, together with the person who sits on it.
Alexander Elder
I practice wearapy: it is a psychology between colour and texture. Take your emotions – what is it that you want to accomplish for the rest of the day? Pick that feeling and channel it into a colour.
Jeannie Mai
A primary flaw in my psychology is that I’ll give people a hundred yards’ worth of rope with which to hang themselves, but once they reach that hundred-yard line, I strangle them to death with it.
Jim Goad
Playing for Billy Martin is like being married to him. Right now, we’re all sleeping on the couch.
Matt Keough
Psychopaths view any social exchange as a ‘feeding opportunity,’ a contest or a test of wills in which there can be only one winner. Their motives are to manipulate and take, ruthlessly and without remorse.
Robert D. Hare
Every mind has another vision of reality. There is not a common reality. Every person thinks he is like the others, but every person is different, living in his own psychology.
Alejandro Jodorowsky
All interpretation, all psychology, all attempts to make things comprehensible, require the medium of theories, mythologies, and lies.
Hermann Hesse
A trap in dealing with difficult people is getting wrapped up in their personality. When we can stay objective and remove ourselves from other people’s roller-coaster psychology, we have a much better chance of moving through the situation positively.
Tara Stiles
The science of psychology has been far more successful on the negative than on the positive side… It has revealed to us much about man’s shortcomings, his illnesses, his sins, but little about his potentialities, his virtues, his achievable aspirations, or his psychological health.
Abraham Maslow
Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.
Carl Jung
Maybe poverty is a special case of something else. That something else is ‘scarcity,’ and anyone who has the experience of ‘having very little’ experiences the same psychology.
Sendhil Mullainathan
Opinions are like feet. Everybody’s got a couple, and they usually stink.
Jim Slattery
Traditionally, psychology has been the study of two populations: university freshmen and white rats.
Paul Bloom
The Ideal is in thyself, the impediments too is in thyself.
Thomas Carlyle
As an industrial designer, you design the thing by yourself, and then it goes away from you, whereas fashion is in constant relation to the body and to psychology. It makes it more complicated, and it makes it more challenging.
Raf Simons
When making decisions about people, stop confusing experience with evidence. Just as owning a car doesn’t make you an expert on engines, having a brain doesn’t mean you understand psychology.
Adam Grant
You talk to God, you’re religious. God talks to you, you’re psychotic.
Doris Egan
In the distant future I see open fields for far more important researches. Psychology will be based on a new foundation, that of the necessary acquirement of each mental power and capacity by gradation. Light will be thrown on the origin of man and his history.
Charles Darwin
I almost got a psychology degree, I almost got a philosophy degree. I kept changing it so they couldn’t make me graduate. I studied anthropology and eastern religion, epistomology, and astronomy… I took every interesting course I could find for nine years.
Patrick Rothfuss
I’ve studied psychology. I’m fascinated by the human mind, and I love people.
Berglind Icey
The instinct of revenge is the force which constitutes the essence of what we call psychology, history, metaphysics and morality. The spirit of revenge is the genealogical element of our thought, the transcendental principle of our way of thinking.
Gilles Deleuze
It is quite possible–overwhelmingly probable, one might guess–that we will always learn more about human life and personality from novels than from scientific psychology
Noam Chomsky
Psychology Today is probably one of my favorite magazines, Guitar, Guitar World. People.
Meredith Brooks
My parents’ generation didn’t have any understanding of psychology or emotion or individual temperament. In fact, they were slightly embarrassed by all those words.
Sebastian Faulks
When facts are few, speculations are most likely to represent individual psychology.
Carl Jung
Keep Darwinian thinking out of cosmology, out of psychology, out of human culture, out of ethics, politics, and religion!
Daniel Dennett
In all the sciences except Psychology we deal with objects and their changes, and leave out of account as far as possible the mind which observes them.
Charles D. Broad
All I want, and I think all any parent with a semblance of a moral psychology wants, is for my kid to have his own experience, uninhibited.
Robert Downey, Jr.
A free throw seems boring but then when you sort of dig into what’s going on and the history and psychology and the social anthropology around the free throw – it’s interesting.
Alex Blumberg
We are always in a perpetual state of being created and creating ourselves. (p. 221)
Daniel J. Siegel
I think the works of W.D. Gann and Robert Prechter have inspired me more than anyone else. It was from their writings that I discovered cycles, patterns, and psychology dominate the market, and that the news breaks with the cycles, not the other way around.
Jeff Cooper
To speak a language is to take on a world, a culture.
Frantz Fanon
Though I never shout at Labour Members or insult them, I can never understand the psychology of some of our men who endeavoured to reason with them.
Neville Chamberlain
I think Buddhism should open the door of psychology and healing to penetrate more easily into the Western world.
Nhat Hanh
Clinical psychology tells us arguably that trauma is the ultimate killer.Memories r not recycled like atoms and particles in quantum physics. they can be lost forever. It’s sort of like my past is an unfinished painting and as the artist of that painting,I must fill in all the ugly holes and make it beautiful again.
Lady Gaga
The broader problem is that a great deal of popular preaching and teaching uses the bible as a pegboard on which to hang a fair bit of Christianized pop psychology or moralizing encouragement, with very little effort to teach the faithful, from the Bible, the massive doctrines of historic confessional Christianity.
D. A. Carson
Hard science fiction, which is what I write, often is rightly criticized for having either negligible or unbelievable characterization, but the science I’ve actually studied most post-secondarily is psychology, and characterization is the art of dramatizing psychological principles.
Robert J. Sawyer
Politics cannot stop to study psychology Its methods are rough; its judgments rougher still.
Henry Adams
I need to do psychology classes. That would be so interesting to me, studying people.
Britney Spears
I love people, watching people interact. It’s a lot of psychology. We learn about ourselves by watching other people’s lives on the screen.
Tatiana Maslany
Our survival as a human community may depend as much upon our nurture of love in infancy and childhood as upon the protection of our society from external threats.
Selma Fraiberg
I knew no one had better ring psychology than Jake Roberts.
Diamond Dallas Page
My work has gotten more political over time, but once you start exploring food, you find you’re up against economics and politics and psychology and anthropology, all of these different things you have to deal with.
Michael Pollan
Transforming yourself into a deep listener will not only prove more amusing as you open your mind to their mind, but you will gain the most invaluable lessons about human psychology.
Robert Greene
My most difficult opponent is myself. When I am playing I often involuntarily make a world champion out of a candidate master.
Lev Polugaevsky
What is true [in psychology] is alas not new, the new not true.
Hermann Ebbinghaus
My background is in psychology and I’m also a stage actor. That’s my background.
Tommy Wiseau
I am seriously interested in the psychology of childhood. And I’ve given a lot of my life to trying to see questions of personal development, as well as the great issues of the day, from a child’s point of view.
Kevin Crossley-Holland
Oosthuizen’s red spot is a classic example of what’s known in sports psychology as a process goal-a technique by which the athlete is required to focus on something, however minor, to prevent them from thinking about other things: in Oosthuizen’s case, all the ways he could possibly screw up the shot.
Kevin Dutton
The moment we make up our minds that we are going on with this determination to exalt God overall, we step out of the worldГ­s parade… We acquire a new viewpoint; a new and different psychology will be formed within us; a new power will begin to surprise us by its upsurgings and its outgoings.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
It wasn’t as easy as you think. It’s hard to stay awake that long.
Hugh Campbell
Psychology is simply great because it helps you better understand all kinds of people.
Adrienne C. Moore
I only read biographies, metaphysics and psychology. I can dream up my own fiction.
Mae West
If it’s not one thing, it’s your mother.
Sigmund Freud
This calls for a very special blend of psychology and extreme violence.
Ben Elton
What tipped the scales was that psychology involved working with rats.
Morrie Schwartz
Purposeful action is thus the goal of all that is truly educative.
John Dewey
You got to have the killer instinct. If you do not have it, forget about basketball and go into social psychology or something. If you sometimes wonder if you’ve got it, you ain’t got it. No pussycats, please.
Bill Russell
Psychology teaches us at every step that though two types of activity can have the same external manifestation, whether in origin or essence, their nature may differ most profoundly.
Lev S. Vygotsky
As a producer, I am dying to explore psychology and urban dilemmas – say, fatigue – in a marriage.
Ekta Kapoor
I have a master’s in psychology, and depression and anxiety are considered to be cyclical.
Autre Ne Veut
The place where optimism most flourishes is the lunatic asylum.
Havelock Ellis
If the only tool you have is a hammer, it’s hard to eat spaghetti.
David Allen
The separation of psychology from the premises of biology is purely artificial, because the human psyche lives in indissoluble union with the body.
Carl Jung
I’m really into psychology, and I want to be a psych major.
Brittany Snow
In every case, we ought to act that part towards another, which we would judge to be right in him to act toward us, if we were in his circumstances and he in ours; or more generally – What we approve in others, that we ought to practise in like circumstances, what we condemn in others we ought not to do.
Thomas Reid
When the mind is thinking it is talking to itself.
You play to win the game.
Herman Edwards
Economics was like psychology, a pseudoscience trying to hide that fact with intense theoretical hyperelaboration. And gross domestic product was one of those unfortunate measurement concepts, like inches or the British thermal unit, that ought to have been retired long before.
Kim Stanley Robinson
All I know is this: nobody’s very big in the first place, and it looks to me like everybody spends their whole life tearing everybody else down.
Ken Kesey
Spirit is love, spirit is connection, inclusive, and that’s what I’m interested in, and that’s what moved me. That’s what I got more and more into as I grew up and as I was in college in the 60’s with consciousness raising and other kind of things, gestalt psychology etc.
Surya Das
My best game plan is to sit on the bench and call out specific instructions like ‘C’mon Boog,’ ‘Get a hold of one, Frank,’ or ‘Let’s go, Brooks.’
Earl Weaver
Thoughts shut up want air, And spoil, like bales unopen’d to the sun.
Edward Young
Stand-up comedy is a science. Every comedian is a psychology major, naturally.
Eddie Griffin
Men and women are brothers and sisters; they are not of different species; and what need be obtained to know both, but to allow for different modes of education, for situation and constitution, or perhaps I should rather say, for habits, whether good or bad.
Samuel Richardson
It is also possible for the unconscious or an archetype to take complete possession of a man and to determine his fate down to the smallest detail
Carl Jung
I majored in Psychology in college. I was going to be a child psychologist.
Gloria Estefan
In practice, socialism didnt work. But socialism could never have worked because it is based on false premises about human psychology and society, and gross ignorance of human economy.
David Horowitz
Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is.
William James
Sasha and I are so lucky to have The Revival on ‘Raw’ with us, and we’re so lucky to be such good friends with them because they help us so much in understanding the why in so many things. They teach us the psychology of actually being a tag team – people don’t understand that.
I have to put my father over because he really taught me a lot, especially when it comes to out-of-the-ring psychology and how to react when you’re approached by fans after a show or in the airport. It might sound silly, but a lot of those things come into play when you’re playing a character.
Randy Orton
In school, I studied psychology, linguistics, neuroscience. I understand that there is a real lack of respect for the brain.
Aloe Blacc
The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.
James Allen
Psychology, so dedicated to awakening human consciousness, needs to wake itself up to one of the most ancient human truths: we cannot be studied or cured apart from the planet.
James Hillman
If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
Abraham Maslow
Freud: If it’s not one thing, it’s your mother
Robin Williams
No very sharp line can be drawn between social psychology and individual psychology.
George Herbert Mead
The key to trading success is emotional discipline. If intelligence were the key, there would be a lot more people making money trading.
Victor Sperandeo
I suppose you could say that I majored in men and minored in psychology.
Eileen Ford
There is nothing about an individual as important as his IQ, except possibly his morals.
Lewis Terman
Psychology is the science of psychic states both as to content and form, regarded from an objective standpoint, and brought in relation to the living corporeal individual.
Boris Sidis
If you are in passionate love and want to celebrate your passion, read poetry. If your ardor has calmed and you want to understand your evolving relationship, read psychology. But if you have just ended a relationship and would like to believe you are better off without love, read philosophy.
Jonathan Haidt
Psychology was going to be my minor in college. I’ve always been really interested in the human mind, which is probably why I’m an actor.
Crystal Reed
It is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried.
Carl Rogers
Historians are presumed to be unable to “do psychology,” which is “mystical” anyway, so they are forced to accept the most “rational” explanations… “and it is on these that history is built.
Lloyd deMause
I want to get a master’s degree in… psychology.
Madison Beer
After engaging in acts of war against another nation, there exists a degree of uncertainty in terms of the enemy’s reactions. War inspires an unpredictable psychology and evokes strong emotions that defy systems analysis quantification.
H. R. McMaster
If I am not mistaken, psychology, psychiatry and some branches of sociology, not to speak about the so-called philosophy of history, are even more affected by what I have called the scientistic prejudice, and by specious claims of what science can achieve.
Friedrich August von Hayek
I’m not very good at depicting the characters’ psychology on the page.
Akira Toriyama
Once we see an aspect of what we or someone else does as something that happens, we lose our grip on the idea that it has been done and that we can judge the doer and not just the happening.
Thomas Nagel
I’m interested in philosophical psychology, people like Nietzsche, Freud, Alcan, Foucault, Derrida.
Hanif Kureishi
If Goddess religion is not to become mindless idiocy, we must win clear of tendency of magic to become supertition. Magic – and among its branches I include psychology as its purpose to describe and change consciousness – is an art.
He that feareth is a slave, were he never so rich, were he never so powerful. But he that is without fear is king of all the world.
Eric Rucker Eddison
I love people and psychology. As a writer, I’m not so interested in Fred getting from the living room to the car. I want to go inside Fred’s soul and play there.
Dorianne Laux
The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is ‘What does a woman want?’
Sigmund Freud
I’m not really interested in sports psychology. It makes me feel like a crazy person.
Michelle Wie
I conceive ethics as a branch of psychology.
Thomas Nagel
I was initially just fascinated by the Branch Davidians. This doesn’t really apply to Rachel Koresh because she was born into the church, and that was all she had ever known, but I was fascinated by the psychology of how people get to that place – a place like Mount Carmel and an FBI stand-off for 51 days.
Melissa Benoist
Researchers have always tried to use psychology for predictive ends: Can what we already know about a person tell us how she will behave in a given situation? The results of these endeavors have been mixed.
Maria Konnikova
What is Southern California but an ever-changing dreamscape backdrop for the postmodern ideal? The psychology of the postmodern world is the continual state of change as we live in its idealist manufactured dream, built by developers.
John Van Hamersveld
Most strong players are completely self-centered…. They are blind to how other people feel or else simply don’t care.
Joel Lautier
My favorite books are psychology, self-help, and I’m fascinated by Jung, by dream work.
Laura Dern
If you are interested in something, you will focus on it, and if you focus attention on anything, it is likely that you will become interested in it. Many of the things we find interesting are not so by nature, but because we took the trouble of paying attention to them.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
It’s a complex relationship when your dad happened to be president and you are president and then you have all the amateur psychology that goes on when people try to speculate about motivations.
Jeb Bush
With each success the ability to change is reduced. My longtime friend and coach Grandmaster Yuri Dokhoian, aptly compared it to being dipped in bronze. Each victory added another coat.
Garry Kasparov
A lot of positive psychology is stuck in being the psychology of privilege, and I reject that.
Ariel Gore
I wanted to write about relationships. But I didn’t feel I had the experience to sing about them in a deep way. Studying psychology helped me out in terms of my understanding. I still look through my old textbooks when I’m in need of inspiration.
Natasha Bedingfield
Everybody has his own theatre, in which he is manager, actor, prompter, playwright, sceneshifter, boxkeeper, doorkeeper, all in one, and audience into the bargain.
Julius Charles Hare
Within psychology and neuroscience, some new and rigorous experimental paradigms for studying consciousness have helped it begin to overcome the stigma that has been attached to the topic for most of this century.
David Chalmers
I’ve decided to do it, for the pure and simple reason that I just think it’s the right thing to do.
Charlie Crist
I think my favorite horror films are really grounded in human psychology, which is to say I think through sort of extreme dislocations of reality.
Laura van den Berg
I swear to you, any question you can have about moves, psychology, gimmicks, the history of Pro Wrestling, he knows. Lance Storm is an encyclopedia of wrestling knowledge.
Laurel Van Ness
What we have come to, through a combination of popular psychology and expanding technology, is a presumption that all our thoughts and feelings are worth uttering.
Judith Martin
If they can’t learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn.
Ole Ivar Lovaas
One need not be eminent in any part of profound knowledge in order to understand it and to apply it. The various segments of the system of profound knowledge cannot be separated. They interact with each other. For example knowledge about psychology is incomplete without knowledge of variation.
W. Edwards Deming
I was an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina and earned my degree in Experimental Psychology in 1988.
Christine Blasey Ford
Psychologically, the choice of an appropriate opening is of the utmost importance for a player’s success in a tournament.
Savielly Tartakower
I’m not a sociologist, and the novel has often concerned itself with sociology. It’s one of the generating forces that’s made fiction interesting to people. But that’s not my concern. I’m interested in psychology. And also certain philosophical questions about the world.
Jonathan Lethem
It’s not like you can say, ‘This is the right side and this is the wrong side,’ because obviously, a happy person is never going to want to inflict pain on somebody else. So the bullies are really victims themselves and yada, yada, yada, pop psychology, but it’s true.
Dove Cameron
The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of his life. Only if we know that the thing which truly matters is the infinite can we avoid fixing our interest upon futilities, and upon all kinds of goals which are not of real importance.
Carl Jung
Magick has many aspects, but primarily it acts as a dramatized system of “psychology
Robert Anton Wilson
The connection between psychology, mythology, and literature is as important as the connection between psychology and biology and the hard sciences.
Jordan Peterson
Schools receive 12% more per student for those doing media studies or psychology than they do for those doing maths. You could change that around, made a premium on doing maths.
Liz Truss
What do people have against convicts? Is living together in the pen of freedom, where young people engage in mutual psychology, any more beautiful?
Karl Kraus
Psychology ought certainly to give the teacher radical help.
William James
We all have a dark side, and we have to confront our dark side. That’s pop American psychology.
Gary Kraftsow
There is no such thing as a normal psychology that holds for all people.
Karen Horney
I majored in psychology, and I still love listening to people’s problems.
Gayle King
That is why, according to this newer psychology, Christianity has already fulfilled its biological mission, and it is impossible for the modern man to understand its original significance.
Muhammad Iqbal
When you sit down to play a game you should think only about the position, but not about the opponent. Whether chess is regarded as a science, or an art, or a sport, all the same psychology bears no relation to it and only stands in the way of real chess.
Jose Raul Capablanca
Through others we become ourselves.
Lev S. Vygotsky
You don’t have to be the best at something. You just have to be the most determined.
Lauren Burns
The sad truth is that many behavioral economists know very little about psychology.
Richard Thaler
SAT tests are designed by huge panels of experts in education and psychology who work for years to design tests in which not one single question measures any bit of knowledge that anyone might actually need in the real world. We should applaud kids for getting lower scores.
Dave Barry
In 1996, I received a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Southern California.
Christine Blasey Ford
We all know that the ‘reality’ of reality TV is an artful construction, an effect not only of editing but of a Lorenzian rat-in-a-mirrored-labyrinth artificial environment which attenuates psychology into a series of territorial twitches.
Mark Fisher
A Separation Psychology produces a Separation Sociology, a way of socializing with each other that encourages the entire human society to act as separate entities serving their own separate interests.
Neale Donald Walsch
When your Islamic discourse with someone becomes a debate, that’s when you know that you have to stop. The psychology of a debate is like a sports competition, and no one likes to lose. So even if you make a good point, the other person isn’t going to congratulate you. They are thinking about revenge.
Nouman Ali Khan
We are all students of the world; frail embodied consciousnesses struggling to understand, and be a meaningful part of this great, mysterious gift of life.
Bryant H. McGill
Evil gives you far more strings to pull. But I must say that I have never been interested in the psychology of evil, not in the slightest. Perhaps I’m not interested in evil, but in the dark sides of human beings.
Lars von Trier
There’s information about everything from poetry to pills, from picture frames to pyramids, and from pudding to psychology–and that’s just in the P aisle, which we’re walking down right now.
Daniel Handler
Puerto Rican culture is very different from Mexican culture. Part of the Mexican psychology is the idea of being an immigrant or being illegal or being confused with that. That doesn’t happen with Puerto Ricans, because you’re a commonwealth.
Lela Loren
Breathless and unharmed, we emerge from the mazes of metaphysics and psychology where man and the soul are playing hide-and-seek.
Ameen Rihani
We speak of virtue, honour, reason; but our thought does not translate any one of these concepts into a substance.
Wilhelm Wundt
Horror is beyond the reach of psychology.
Theodor W. Adorno
Critical to any practice of sacred psychology is training in multiple imageries to facilitate the inner realism of journeys of the soul.
Jean Houston
If one writes or reads novels from the point of view of psychology, it is very inconsistent and petty to want to shy away from even the slowest and most detailed analysis of the most unnatural lusts, gruesome tortures, shocking infamy, and disgusting sensual or spiritual impotence.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
If your opponent cannot do anything active, then don’t rush the position; instead you should let him sit there, suffer, and beg you for a draw
Jeremy Silman
While some might mistakenly consider value investing a mechanical tool for identifying bargains, it is actually a comprehensive investment philosophy that emphasizes the need to perform in-depth fundamental analysis, pursue long-term investment results, limit risk, and resist crowd psychology.
Seth Klarman
I am a Professor of Psychology at Palo Alto University and a Research Psychologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
Christine Blasey Ford
If you read some of the recent literature, there is no such thing as whiteness. But we made it up. Not my original thought, but it’s true. Because you were born white, you have advantages systemically, culturally, psychology there. They have been built up for hundreds of years. Many people can’t look at it.
Gregg Popovich
It’s not too difficult to get the skeletons out of the closet with people, but to get the gold out is a different matter. That is therapy. Psychology is the Art of finding the gold of the spirit.
Robert Johnson
The coaching profession doesn’t hand you any gifts.
Randy Carlyle
The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.
Carl Jung
The psychology of a complex mind must differ almost as much from that of a simple, mechanized mind as its psychology would from ours; because something that must underlie and perhaps be even greater than sex is involved.
John Desmond Bernal
What I remember the most about my childhood is constant fear and “good food.” I don’t want to get into the greasy, buttery, deep-fried, fatty, sugary, meaty, barbecued details here, but with no knowledge of healthy lifestyles or positive psychology, time took its toll on me.
Bryant H. McGill
I try to lie as much as I can when I’m interviewed. It’s reverse psychology. I figure if you lie, they’ll print the truth.
River Phoenix
I hate crowds and making speeches. I hate facing cameras and having to answer to a crossfire of questions. Why popular fancy should seize upon me, a scientist, dealing in abstract things and happy if left alone, is a manifestation of mass psychology that is beyond me.
Albert Einstein
He who has a slight disadvantage plays more attentively, inventively and more boldly than his antagonist who either takes it easy or aspires after too much. Thus a slight disadvantage is very frequently seen to convert into a good, solid advantage.
Emanuel Lasker
I don’t like high concept movies very much, and the kind of scripts that I would occasionally get offered tended to be really high concept comedies or romantic comedies. I just don’t like it. I like much more realistic movies with actual psychology and behavior in them.
Greg Mottola
How come the little things bother you when you are in a bad position? They don’t bother you in good positions.
Yasser Seirawan
The best wrestlers, whether it’s a Hulk Hogan or a Rey Mysterio, are the ones who have psychology and can understand this business.
Hulk Hogan
Anyway, there is a lot of really interesting work going on in the neuroscience and psychology of consciousness, and I would love to see philosophers become more closely involved with this.
David Chalmers
My mom is the type of mom who wonders why I haven’t used my psychology degree to become a successful clinical psychologist.
Autre Ne Veut
While I’m not an expect in psychology, I’m of the opinion that anyone – even strangers – can sense the urgency of a request, and most people will usually do the right thing.
Nicholas Sparks
Maybe philosophy – I love talking about ideas. Or maybe art history. I was thinking about psychology, then I got really afraid because everybody says it’s terribly boring.
Claire Danes
When computers came along, I felt for the first time that I had the proper tools for the kind of theoretical work I wanted to do. So I moved over to that, and that got me into psychology.
Herbert A. Simon
We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.
William Shakespeare
Depression is a prison where you are both the suffering prisoner and the cruel jailer.
Dorothy Rowe
I know the Muslim psychology. It is all pomposity and bravado. I give you my word that if Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated. Shame is a great motivator as well as deterrent. Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is serious stuff not a laughing matter.
Ali Sina
Interesting survey in the current Journal of Abnormal Psychology: New York
City has a higher percentage of people you shouldn’t make any sudden moves
around than any other city in the world.
David Letterman
I think investment psychology is by far the more important element, followed by risk control, with the least important consideration being the question of where you buy and sell.
Tom Basso
Men will always be mad, and those who think they can cure them are the maddest of all.
I like stories with lots of psychology.
Alfred Hitchcock
Of course, Behaviourism ‘works’. So does torture. Give me a no-nonsense, down-to-earth behaviourist, a few drugs, and simple electrical appliances, and in six months I will have him reciting the Athanasian Creed in public.
W. H. Auden
Here’s a good rule of thumb; too clever is dumb.
Ogden Nash
The world feels overwhelming to me on every level. Just the number of organisms that live on this planet. Our politics, our violence, psychology, emotions; there’s just a lot going on, right?
Zoe Leonard
The good news is that, at least in economics, I’ve seen movement away from its overemphasis on mathematical models of purely rational behavior to a more eclectic and commonsense approach: research that is, among other things, more respectful of insights from psychology.
Robert J. Shiller
A man like me cannot live without a hobby-horse, a consuming passion – in Schiller’s words a tyrant. I have found my tyrant, and in his service I know no limits. My tyrant is psychology. It has always been my distant, beckoning goal and now since I have hit upon the neuroses, it has come so much the nearer.
Sigmund Freud
The lived experiences which could not find adequate scientific expression in the substance doctrine of rational psychology were now validated in light of new and better methods.
Wilhelm Dilthey
A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.
Charles Dickens
The ultimate goal of Jungian psychotherapy is to make the symbolic process conscious
Edward F Edinger
Spirituality is rebellion; religiousness is orthodoxy. Spirituality is individuality; religiousness is just remaining part of the crowd psychology. Religiousness keeps you a sheep, and spirituality is a lion’s roar.
Give yourself permission to immediately walk away from anything that gives you bad vibes. there is no need to explain or make sense of it. just trust what you feel.
Sonia Choquette
You just listen to the ball and bat come together. They make an awful noise.
Darrell Johnson
Who knows, the mind has the key to all things besides.
Amos Bronson Alcott
Good psychology should include all the methodological techniques, without having loyalty to one method, one idea, or one person.
Abraham Maslow
I always felt that a scientist owes the world only one thing, and that is the truth as he sees it.
Hans Eysenck
I used to be and I still am into psychology. I would like to be able to pursue something like that, but I don’t know. The older I’ve gotten, the more endearing this business has become and I can’t really imagine leaving it
Lindsey Shaw
A technical survey that systematize, digest, and appraise the mid century state of psychology.
Stanley Smith Stevens
I got a psychology degree from USC, but music is just my whole life.
I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don’t even invite me.
Dave Barry
The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection, in which are reflected the mythologems, i.e., the archetypes. In this vision astrology and alchemy, the two classical functionaries of the psychology of the collective unconscious, join hands.
Carl Jung
I studied psychology in school, and I learned how to understand people’s feelings, how to get along with people and relate to people.
Vittoria Ceretti
Nothing is as good as it seems and nothing is as bad, but somewhere between reality falls.
Lou Holtz
Everyone should want to excel in life. You should never take the desire to excel away from the human race.
Henry Iba
Guilt is the mafia of the mind.
Robert Mandel
The Simpsons has shaped my psychology to a degree one would usually attribute to a parent, or a particularly devout upbringing. I am a zealot.
Ash Sarkar
The symbols of the self arise in the depths of the body, and they express its materiality every bit as much as the perceiving consciousness. The symbol is thus a living body
Carl Jung
I fantasized about being a psychology major when I first started school, and I took a handful of Psych 101 classes.
Claire Danes
He has the players too happy.
Red Auerbach
Jim Thompson understood something about the serial killer before the psychology caught up to it, which is that they are detached to it and they do want to get caught.
Val Kilmer
It’s not too late actually to speak to somebody about psychology, it’s never too late.
Carl Froch
Marx’s father became a Christian when Marx was a little boy, and some, at least, of the dogmas he must have then accepted seem to have born fruit in his son’s psychology.
Bertrand Russell
I might have some performance psychology support for individuals but… the best psychologist is the coach.
Emma Hayes
I see psychoanalysis, art and biology ultimately coming together, just like cognitive psychology and neuroscience have merged.
Eric Kandel
Earl gave me his version of what happened and asked me not to suspend the umpires.
Lee MacPhail
Morality is not just any old topic in psychology but close to our conception of the meaning of life. Moral goodness is what gives each of us the sense that we are worthy human beings.
Steven Pinker
The monstrous sameness and pervasive ugliness so highly characteristic of the findings of modern psychology, and contrasting so obviously with the enormous variety and richness of overt human conduct, witness to the radical difference between the inside and the outside of the human body.
Hannah Arendt
At last, psychology gets serious about glee, fun, and happiness. Martin Seligman has given us a gift-a practical map for the perennial quest for a flourishing life.
Daniel Goleman
The Self then functions as a union of opposites and thus constitutes the most immediate experience of the Divine which it is psychologically possible to imagine
Carl Jung
But it is the bane of psychology to suppose that where results are similar, processes must be the same. Psychologists are too apt to reason as geometers would, if the latter were to say that the diameter of a circle is the same thing as its semi-circumference, because, forsooth, they terminate in the same two points.
William James
Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists.
Edward de Bono
Oh! This’ll impress you – I’m actually in the Abnormal Psychology textbook. Obviously my family is so proud. Keep in mind though, I’m a PEZ dispenser and I’m in the abnormal Psychology textbook. Who says you can’t have it all?
Carrie Fisher
Guardiola has a lot of knowledge about the game and understands the psychology of the players. You can see all the things he is doing well.
Xabi Alonso
… Tal accepted absolutely all the world champion’s conditions with a smile, taking away a very important psychological trump card from him – the harsh, prickly relations with his opponent that were characteristic of all Botvinnik’s matches.
Gennadi Sosonko
Psychobabble attempts to redefine the entire English language just to make a correct statement incorrect. Psychology is the study of why someone would try to do this.
Criss Jami
So I do, of course, reject much that is central not only to the psychology of Descartes and Kant, but to their epistemology as well. No doubt, the best available theories of today will look primitive in comparison with what we are in a position to understand hundreds of years from now.
Hilary Kornblith
I don’t believe that we evolved moral psychology; it just doesn’t seem plausible to me as a biological phenomenon.
Tom Stoppard
Sex is not a sin. Many people have complained that this is taking all the fun out of sex.
Ruth Westheimer
In conclusion we may say, in view of the confirmation that our study has given of the parallelism between individual and racial thought of the Self, that in the history of psychology we discern the great profile which the race has drawn on the pages of time.
James Mark Baldwin
I think psychology still has a sway over everything we do, but music, in and of itself, is the therapy.
Curt Smith
My work is formal, not based on psychology.
Robert Wilson
Politically, the goal of today’s dominant trend is statism. Philosophically, the goal is the obliteration of reason; psychologically, it is the erosion of ambition.
Ayn Rand
Any skills that I have, I couldn’t really make money with them. I would like to think that maybe I would be doing something in psychology or something of that nature because I love that vein of medicine – the getting down and getting nitty-gritty.
Ian Harding
I ended up going to Furman. The campus was beautiful. It was, like, one of the top 10 college campuses on the planet. And they had dropped a ton of money into their psychology program, and I already knew that’s what I wanted to major in. I loved the people there; I very much felt at home.
Xavier Woods
The fact that psychology postulates an external material world and studies it in so far as it comes to be reflected in consciousness, points to another postulate which psychology must assume in addition, namely, the existence of an inner world consciousness.
Boris Sidis
The art of clinical diagnosis lies in the ability to ask the right questions.
Harriet B. Braiker
The best way to deal with somebody is to deal with yourself.
Terry Cole-Whittaker
If you were very bright and you became head of a department, as I did, of the psychology department, you were encouraged to go on to graduate work. But as a women you didn’t even think about discrimination.
Betty Friedan
All the lessons of psychiatry, psychology, social work, indeed culture, have taught us over the last hundred years that it is the acceptance of differences, not the search for similarities which enables people to relate to each other in their personal or family lives.
John Ralston Saul
Cryptoeconomics is so fascinating to study because it’s a combination of technology, economics, and psychology.
Nick Tomaino
Crowds are somewhat like the sphinx of ancient fable: It is necessary to arrive at a solution of the problems offered by their psychology or to resign ourselves to being devoured by them.
Gustave Le Bon
Inspirational Psychology brings peace and choice to life even in the most difficult of situations.
Lee L Jampolsky
“Life is unfair” “The goalposts will move” and above all: “other people matter”
Christopher Peterson
A more normal, mature way to think about it [my work] would be, Oh, I work on multiple projects at once and they overlap, but the actual psychology of it is a lot more self-abusing.
Miranda July
I had a very complex childhood, and when I met my wife, because she has a master’s in psychology, she promoted me into getting help. It really has helped. I’m not healed yet, but I’m working on some issues I had as a child.
Alex Rodriguez
We set the table, but no one ate.
Johnny Oates
If you can achieve winning a league championship, that, to me, is the full test of the team and management because it is over the full season and you have a lot of problems you have to overcome.
Walter Smith
Any psychology of sign systems will be part of social psychology – that is to say, will be exclusively social; it will involve the same psychology as is applicable in the case of languages.
Ferdinand de Saussure
Psychology plays a big part but I always say psychology will only be a differentiator when the players are of equal technical strength.
Viswanathan Anand
Go vegetable heavy. Reverse the psychology of your plate by making meat the side dish and vegetables the main course.
Bobby Flay
Coach Landry was a master at maintaining discipline and creating an environment where ordinary people could achieve extra ordinary results.
Danny White
I’m afraid you can’t create tragedy out of abnormal psychology.
Andrew Sarris
The problem in our society is the ego psychology and conventional wisdom about “look out for #1.” That conventional wisdom thinks that “love your enemy” is to some a principle no one can ever live by.
Robert Thurman
Sometimes I even say that I have surpassed Lasker in using psychology. How? Well, sometimes I use psychology with a portion of risk. That is something else, something that Lasker wouldn’t allow.
Viktor Korchnoi
One may understand the cosmos, but never the ego; the self is more distant than any star.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
If a film isn’t really talking about who we are and what our psychologies are, then we’re probably not that interested in it, actually.
Hugo Weaving
Man is many things, but he is not rational.
Oscar Wilde
The key to the understanding of the character of the conscious lies in the region of the unconscious.
Carl Gustav Carus
It’s not rocket science. It’s social science – the science of understanding people’s needs and their unique relationship with art, literature, history, music, work, philosophy, community, technology and psychology. The act of design is structuring and creating that balance.
Clement Mok
But psychology is a more tricky field, in which even outstanding authorities have been known to run in circles, ‘describing things which everyone knows in language which no one understands’.
Raymond Cattell
I did a B.A. with a major in fine arts and a minor in psychology. I wanted to become a teacher or do art therapy for the elderly. But then I realised I wanted to travel instead.
Nargis Fakhri
The only reason psychology students don’t have to do more and harder mathematics than physics students is because the mathematicians haven’t yet discovered ways of dealing with problems as hard as those in psychology.
John G. Kemeny
Evolutionary psychology is one of four sciences that are bringing human nature back into the picture.
Steven Pinker
Our ability to adapt is amazing. Our ability to change isn’t quite as spectacular.
Lisa Lutz
We’re a nation hungry for more joy: Because we’re starving from a lack of gratitude.
BrenГ© Brown
For the first time in human history the psychology that is a prerequisite for intimacy has become the psychology that is a prerequisite for species survival.
Warren Farrell
I did a lot of theater in college, and I knew that not many people make it, but I just figured, ‘Well, I really want to try acting while I’m young, and I don’t ever want to look back and say that I never gave it a try.’ I fully figured I’d be back in grad school – probably for psychology.
Hank Azaria
I was going to university to study psychology and my big ambition in life was to open treatment rooms for psychotherapy.
Holly Willoughby
