Love received and love given comprise the best form of therapy.More Gordon Allport quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We cannot know the young child's personality by studying his systems of interest, for his attention is as yet too labile, his reactions impulsive, and interests unformed. From adolescence onward, however, the surest clue to personality is the hierarchy of interests, including the loves and loyalties of adult life.More Gordon Allport quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Reason adapts impulses and beliefs into the real world; rationalization, on the other hand, adapts the concept of reality to the impulses and beliefs of the individual. Reasoning discovers the true cause of our acts, rationalization finds good reasons for justifying our acts.More Gordon Allport quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The dog [in Pavlov's experiments] does not continue to salivate whenever it hears a bell unless sometimes at least an edible offering accompanies the bell. But there are innumerable instances in human life where a single association, never reinforced, results in the establishment of a life-long dynamic system. An experience associated only once with a bereavement, an accident, or a battle, may become the center of a permanent phobia or complex, not in the least dependent on a recurrence of the original shock.More Gordon Allport quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Given a thimbleful of [dramatic] facts we rush to make generalizations as large as a tub.More Gordon Allport quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
