“Memory is not a storage place but a story we tell ourselves in retrospect. As such, it is made of storytelling materials: embroidery and forgery, perplexity and urgency, revelation and darkness.”
Noam Shpancer, The Good Psychologist

“The process is important, regardless of the outcome, just ask Schacter.

(...)mental health... is not a destination but a process. It's about how you drive, not where you're going. The therapist is like a driving instuctor, not a chauffeur.”
Noam Shpancer, The Good Psychologist

“...knowledge imprisons you. You cannot escape it. What you know you cannot unknow. That's why knowledge is dangerous. Learning will redefine your world, irreversibly.”
Noam Shpancer, The Good Psychologist
