Daniel Goleman
“In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels”
Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ

Daniel J. Siegel
“Our dreams and stories may contain implicit aspects of our lives even without our awareness. In fact, storytelling may be a primary way in which we can linguistically communicate to others—as well as to ourselves—the sometimes hidden contents of our implicitly remembering minds. Stories make available perspectives on the emotional themes of our implicit memory that may otherwise be consciously unavailable to us. This may be one reason why journal writing and intimate communication with others, which are so often narrative processes, have such powerful organizing effects on the mind: They allow us to modulate our emotions and make sense of the world.”
Daniel J. Siegel, The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are

Daniel J. Siegel
“Each of us needs periods in which our minds can focus inwardly. Solitude is an essential experience for the mind to organize its own processes and create an internal state of resonance. In such a state, the self is able to alter its constraints by directly reducing the input from interactions with others. (p. 235)”
Daniel J. Siegel, The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are

Kevin Dutton
“Psychopathy is like sunlight. Overexposure can hasten one’s demise in grotesque, carcinogenic fashion. But regulated exposure at controlled and optimal levels can have a significant positive impact on well-being and quality of life.”
Kevin Dutton, The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success

Daniel J. Siegel
“At the most basic level, therefore, secure attachments in both childhood and adulthood are established by two individual's sharing a nonverbal focus on the energy flow (emotional states) and a verbal focus on the information-processing aspects (representational processes of memory and narrative) of mental life. The matter of the mind matters for secure attachments.”
Daniel J. Siegel, The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are

António R. Damásio
“Leaving out appraisal also would render the biological description of the phenomena of emotion vulnerable to the caricature that emotions without an appraisal phase are meaningless events. It would be more difficult to see how beautiful and amazingly intelligent emotions can be, and how powerfully they can solve problems for us.”
Antonio Damasio, Looking for Spinoza: Joy, Sorrow, and the Feeling Brain

Daniel J. Siegel
“Internal mental experience is not the product of a photographic process. Internal reality is in fact constructed by the brain as it interacts with the environment in the present, in the context of its past experiences and expectancies of the future. At the level of perceptual categorizations, we have reached a land of mental representations quite distant from the layers of the world just inches away from their place inside the skull. This is the reason why each of us experiences a unique way of minding the world. (pp. 166-167)”
Daniel J. Siegel, The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are

Daniel J. Siegel
“We must keep in mind that only a part of memory can be translated into the language-based packets of information people use to tell their life stories to others. Learning to be open to many layers of communication is a fundamental part of getting to know another person's life.”
Daniel J. Siegel, The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are

Daniel J. Siegel
“...not all encounters with the world affect the mind equally. Studies have demonstrated that if the brain appraises an event as "meaningful," it will be more likely to be recalled in the future.”
Daniel J. Siegel, The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are

“Disparities in the world are the reflection of the disparities within us.”
Abhijit Naskar, Aşkanjali: The Sufi Sermon

“Gossip is an imperative evolutionary characteristic that enables a community to stand strong and united.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“As a species, we have wasted a lot of our time on this planet holding on to the purely discriminatory and non-variant versions of our exclusively personal realities. Great many ages have passed this way – and it made us lose a lot – our sisters, our brothers, our loved ones – all because, while some of us were trying to hold on to our own “pure” “personal” world, others were doing the same. And all through history it has only led to death and destruction. And after all this, if we still can’t whole-heartedly embrace the beauty and the magnificence of diversity, then I am sad to say that we don’t deserve to call ourselves human.”
Abhijit Naskar, Mission Reality

Abhijit Naskar
“It is the ultimate religion, through which all humans neuropsychologically morph into Buddhas, or Enlightened Beings.”
Abhijit Naskar, Love, God & Neurons: Memoir of a Scientist Who Found Himself by Getting Lost

Abhijit Naskar
“Entertainers are seen by people from all walks of life as some sort of allknowing prophet - if they say, a certain health drink is good, the masses would most naively embrace that health drink in their life - if they say, a certain watch or perfume or handbag is the symbol of elegance, the masses would most blindly run after it - and if they run for office, the masses would most stupidly vote for them, without actually knowing their psychological capacity to run a people and maintain peace.”
Abhijit Naskar, Citizens of Peace: Beyond the Savagery of Sovereignty

Abhijit Naskar
“Imbued with the understanding of the mind we can walk in the shoes of other people.”
Abhijit Naskar, Love, God & Neurons: Memoir of a Scientist Who Found Himself by Getting Lost

Abhijit Naskar
“To predict the impact of an advertisement or a product, based on neurological predispositions and real-time brain activities, is the purpose of the field of "Consumer Neuroscience" or in simple terms "Neuromarketing".”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“There are two horses inside the human mind - the horse of good and the horse of evil. Each horse pulls the human towards their own inclinations. If the horse of evil is fed, then evil reigns over the mind, whereas if the horse of good is fed, then goodness prevails.”
Abhijit Naskar, Aşkanjali: The Sufi Sermon

“Recognizing what the left brain does has immense practical benefits. Simply becoming aware of the interpreter and the endless categories it creates through judgment frees you from being tied to the inevitability of these judgments. That is just say, when you become conscious of the interpreter, you are free to choose to no longer take its interpretation so seriously. In other words, when you realize that everyone’s brain is constantly interpreting, in ways that are subjective and often inaccurate or completely incorrect, you might find yourself able to grasp this as “just my opinion “or “the way I see it” rather than “this is the way it is.” You begin to see your judgment as simply a different line in the sand than others. When someone approaches you with a “this is the way it is“ attitude you can appreciate that this person is dominated by the left brain, that they are servant to its master. As a result, there is no need to take their actions or attitudes personally; it’s a biological function that they have not yet recognized. This small perspective shift is enough to change how we live with each other and ourselves.”
Chris Niebauer

Abhijit Naskar
“Being attached to another person is what makes us human. So, if you say that attachment is bad, you are saying that life is bad.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“The best way to step beyond weakness is to embrace it.”
Abhijit Naskar, Mad About Humans: World Maker's Almanac

“Attachment is not the cause of our suffering, our selfishness is. Once you find freedom in giving, attachment will become your strength and not weakness.”
Abhijit Naskar, Mad About Humans: World Maker's Almanac

Oliver Sacks
“There is little or no hope of any recovery in his memory. But a man does not consist of memory alone. He has feeling, will, sensibilities, moral being... It is here... you may touch him, and see a profound change”
Oliver Sacks, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales
