“Religion is an attempt to get control over the sensory world, in which we are placed, by means of the wish-world, which we have developed inside us as a result of biological and psychological necessities. But it cannot achieve its end. Its doctrines carry with them the stamp of the times in which they originated, the ignorant childhood days of the human race. Its consolations deserve no trust. Experience teaches us that the world is not a nursery. The ethical commands, to which religion seeks to lend its weight, require some other foundations instead, for human society cannot do without them, and it is dangerous to link up obedience to them with religious belief. If one attempts to assign to religion its place in man’s evolution, it seems not so much to be a lasting acquisition, as a parallel to the neurosis which the civilized individual must pass through on his way from childhood to maturity.”
Sigmund Freud , Moses and Monotheism

“إننا لا ننتظر من الأساطير الدينية إن تحسب حساباً دقيقا للتلاحم المنطقي . وإلا فان الوجدان الشعبي سيستاء بحق من مسلك إله يعقد مع الآباء حلفا ملزما للطرفين , ثم يمتنع على حين غرة إن يتجلى من جديد لذريتهم ؟”
سيغموند فرويد, Moses and Monotheism
“بأي عين حسادة ننظر , نحن مشعر ضعاف الإيمان إلى أولئك الذي يعمر أفئدتهم اليقين بوجود كائن اعلى! فالكون نفيه لا ينطوي على أي معضلة أو إشكال بالنسبة إلى هذا الأعظم مادام هو الذي خلق كل شيء ونظم كل شيء”
سيغموند فرويد, Moses and Monotheism
“If our research leads us to a result that reduces religion to the status of a neurosis of mankind and explains it's grandiose powers in the same way as we sould neurotic obsession in our individual patients, then we may be sure we shall incur in this country the greatest resentment of the powers that be.”
Sigmond Freud, Moses and Monotheism
“We live in very remarkable times. We find with astonishment that progress has concluded an alliance with barbarism.”
Sigmund Freud, Moses and Monotheism
“All that is to live in endless song Must in life-time first be drown'd.”
Sigmund Freud, Moses and Monotheism
“In such a case a person would hear of something new which, on the ground of certain evidence, he is asked to accept as true; yet it contradicts many of his wishes and offends some of his highly treasured convictions. He will then hesitate, look for arguments to cast doubt on the new material, and so will struggle for a while until at last he admits it himself: " all this is true after all, although I find it hard to accept and it is painful to have to believe in it." All we learn from this process is that it needs time for the intellectual work of the Ego to overcome objections that are invested by strong feelings.”
Sigmund Freud, Moses and Monotheism
“No probability, however seductive, can protect us from error; even if all parts of a problem seem to fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, one has to remember that the probable need not necessarily be the truth, and the truth not always probable.”
Sigmund Freud, Moses and Monotheism
“Nonostante tutte le approssimazioni e anticipazioni nel mondo circostante, fu nello spirito di un uomo ebreo, Saulo di Tarso, che per la prima volta si affacciò l'idea: «Siamo così infelici perché abbiamo ucciso Dio Padre».”
Sigmund Freud, Mosè e il monoteismo
“In tal modo era taciuta l'uccisione di Dio, ma un crimine la cui espiazione richiedeva che una vittima fosse immolata non poteva esser stato che un omicidio.”
Sigmund Freud, Mosè e il monoteismo
