Criss Jami
“It turns out that the men who ultimately, who unpretentiously value peace are willing to sacrifice their own peace of mind in order to render it.

Criss Jami, Diotima, Battery, Electric Personality

Criss Jami

Walter Isaacson
“Jobs had begun to drop acid by then, and he turned Brennan on to it as well, in a wheat field just outside Sunnyvale. "It was great," he recalled. "I had been listening to a lot of Bach.

Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs

“Forgiveness takes intelligence, discipline, imagination, and persistence, as well as a special psychological strength, something athletes call mental toughness and warriors call courage.”
Edward M. Hallowell, Dare to Forgive: The Power of Letting Go & Moving on

“I hate gossips. I really do. I often wonder where they get the time and effort they put into either digging or fabricating so called *facts* about others. But these ridiculous creatures are a prime example of how the self-communal can try to injure and diminish the self-that-is.
Now you know where the home of the self esteem is. It is not merely within the self. It is within the self-that-is. It is not within the self in relation. This can never hold true. Any sense of self estimation you get from the communal can never hold essentially true.”
Dew Platt, Failure&solitude

Diane L. Randle

Christian Jungersen
“We let rip with idealism and grand words, but it's nothing but rationalizations of our own egoistic behavior. Not only do we lie to others; we also lie to ourselves. Each one of us lives inside a house of mirrors -- our own instinctive self-righteousness distorts the way we view reality so that we can justify our actions to ourselves. And there's no way we can escape.”
Christian Jungersen, The Exception

“Psychic change, as Todorov has recognized, subverted the genre in another way, by revoking the cultural taboos, the social censorship, that had prohibited the overt treatment of psychosexual themes, which then found covert expression in the supernatural tale. 'There is no need today to resort to the devil [or to posthumous reverie] in order to speak of excessive sexual desire, and none to resort to vampires in order to designate the attraction exerted by corpses: psychoanalysis, and the literature which is directly or indirectly inspired by it, deal with these matters in undisguised terms. The themes of fantastic literature have become, literally, the very themes of the psychological investigations of the last fifty years.”
Howard Kerr, The Haunted Dusk

“Without Psychological Evolution there cannot be any form of revolution. The self is constantly changing. Be involved, be evolved, be revolutionized as lucent and fresh as the new wave hitting at the shore. Become the Sea of Changes. It starts from within.”
Grigoris Deoudis

Gustave Le Bon
“فالجماهير لم تكن في حياتها أبدا ظمأى للحقيقة. وأمام الحقائق التي تزعجهم فإنهم يحولون أنظارهم باتجاه آخر، ويفضلون تأليه الخطأ، إذا ما جذبهم الخطأ. فمن يعرف إيهامهم يصبح سيدا لهم، ومن يحاول قشع الأوهام عن أعينهم يصبح ضحية لهم”
Gustave Le Bon, سيكولوجية الجماهير
