Sigmund Freud Quote


Sigmund Freud
Source/Notes:
In German: "Hunde lieben ihre Freunde und beißen ihre Feinde, ganz anders als die Menschen, die reiner Liebe unfähig sind und jederzeit Liebe und Haß in ihren Objektbeziehungen mischen müssen." - As quoted by his daughter Anna Freud in the preface to the new edition (1981) of the book "Topsy: The Story of a Golden-Haired Chow" by Princess Marie Bonaparte. This quote is also reported to be in a letter Freud sent to Marie Bonaparte in 1936.
Picture Quote:



Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate in their object-relations.  - Sigmund Freud

Quote of the day

Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don't practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems that face us - and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along.
