“Suffering with another is typically not pure suffering; there is some good or positive in this experience.”
Louis Hoffman, Existential Psychology East-West

“Freedom can only be understood in the context of destiny, or those things which limit our freedom.”
Louis Hoffman, Existential Psychology East-West

“As therapists our job is to see our clients, even at those times when we would rather look away. It is though our mutual fierce vision that clients discover choice and meaning.”
Louis Hoffman, Existential Psychology East-West

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Man cannot endure his own littleness unless he can translate it into meaningfulness on the largest possible level.”
Ernest Becker, The Denial of Death

“What is the ideal for mental health, then? A lived, compelling illusion that does not lie about life, death, and reality; one honest enough to follow its own commandments: I mean, not to kill, not to take the lives of others to justify itself.”
Ernest Becker

“A myth is a way of making sense in a senseless world. Myths are narrative patterns that give significance to our existence.”
Rollo May

“There can be no stronger proof of the impoverishment of our contemporary culture than the popular - though profoundly mistaken - definition of myth as falsehood.”
Rollo May
