Rollo May

Rollo May

Care is a state in which something does matter; it is the source of human tenderness.More Rollo May [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Depression is the inability to construct a future.More Rollo May [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Life comes from physical survival; but the good life comes from what we care about.More Rollo May [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The acorn becomes an oak by means of automatic growth; no commitment is necessary. The kitten similarly becomes a cat on the basis of instinct. Nature and being are identical in creatures like them. But a man or woman becomes fully human only by his or her choices and his or her commitment to them. People attain worth and dignity by the multitude of decisions they make from day by day. These decisions require courage.More Rollo May [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.More Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:16]
Courage is not the absence of despair; it is, rather, the capacity to move ahead in spite of despair.More Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:22]
Creativity is not merely the innocent spontaneity of our youth and childhood; it must also be married to the passion of the adult human being, which is a passion to live beyond one's death.More Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:35]
Human freedom involves our capacity to pause, to choose the one response toward which we wish to throw our weight.More Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:02]
If you do not express your own original ideas, if you do not listen to your own being, you will have betrayed yourself.More Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:13]
It is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way.More Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:20]
It requires greater courage to preserve inner freedom, to move on in one's inward journey into new realms, than to stand defiantly for outer freedom. It is often easier to play the martyr, as it is to be rash in battle.More Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:26]
Joy, rather than happiness, is the goal of life, for joy is the emotion which accompanies our fulfilling our natures as human beings. It is based on the experience of one's identity as a being of worth and dignityMore Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:32]
The relationship between commitment and doubt is by no means an antagonistic one. Commitment is healthiest when it's not without doubt but in spite of doubt.More Rollo May [07/22/2011 05:07:58]

Without courage our love pales into mere dependency. Without courage our fidelity becomes conformism.More Rollo May [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is highly significant, and indeed almost a rule, that moral courage has its source in identification through one's own sensitivity with the suffering of one's fellow human beings.More Rollo May [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Violence arises not out of superfluity of power but out of powerlessness.More Rollo May [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Deeds of violence in our society are performed largely by those trying to establish their self-esteem, to defend their self-image, and to demonstrate that they, too, are significant.More Rollo May [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One central need in life is to fulfill its own potential.More Rollo May [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One of the few blessings of living in an age of anxiety is that we are forced to become aware of ourselves.More Rollo May [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is dangerous to know, but it is more dangerous not to know.More Rollo May [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
