Mental Health Blog Party 2011

In honor of the American Psychological Association's Mental Health Blog Party, I'm featuring a post on famous psychologists and their quotes. Enjoy these wise words of wisdom and inspiration.

People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun's out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light within. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (1926-2004) Swiss-American Psychiatrist.

"Thought is action in rehearsal." ~ Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) Austrian founder of Psychoanalysis.

"Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success." ~ Dr. Joyce Brothers (1928-) American Psychologist.

"Education is not just the filling of a pail, it is the lighting of a fire." ~ B. F. Skinner (1904-1990) American Psychologist.

"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens." ~ Carl Jung (1875-1961) Swiss Psychiatrist.

"Hate is a product of the unfulfilled life." ~ Erich Fromm (1900-1980) American Psychoanalyst.

"All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on." ~ Henry Ellis (1859-1939) British Psychologist.

"If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail." ~ Abrahamm Maslow (1908-1970) American Psychologist.

"All of us are much more human than otherwise. " ~Harry Stack Sullivan (1892-1941) American Psychologist.

"Life itself still remains a very effective therapist." ~ Karen Horney (1885-1952) American Psychoanalyst.

Who knew Freud was a cognitive behavioralist? ;)

LOVE these!! If I could successfully implement some of these, I'd be much better off. Sadly, I'm struggling with very basics right now lol.

If only people gave more acknowledgement to Freud for his many timeless insights...

The quote from Horney is a classic also. So often I wish my patients would take more risks in their lives and have more experiences that would help their growth.
