British pediatrician and child psychoanalyst.
We fight to exist. Personally, I am not ashamed of fighting to exist. We are doing no very extraordinary thing to fight simply because we do not wish to be enslaved or exterminated.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Feeling real is more than existing; it is finding a way to exist as oneself... and to have a self into which to retreat for relaxation.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The precursor of the mirror is the mother's face.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The mother gazes at the baby in her arms, and the baby gazes at his mother's face and finds himself therein... provided that the mother is really looking at the unique, small, helpless being and not projecting her own expectations, fears, and plans for the child. In that case, the child would find not himself in his mother's face, but rather the mother's own projections. This child would remain without a mirror, and for the rest of his life would be seeking this mirror in vain.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
