Famous quotes containing the words psychology, journal and/or abnormal:

    Idleness is the beginning of all psychology. What? Could it be that psychology is—a vice?
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The Journal is not essentially a confession, a story about oneself. It is a Memorial. What does the writer have to remember? Himself, who he is when he is not writing, when he is living his daily life, when he alive and real, and not dying and without truth.
    Maurice Blanchot (b. 1907)

    In abnormal times like our own, when institutions are changing rapidly in several directions at once and the traditional framework of society has broken down, it becomes more and more difficult to measure any type of behavior against any other.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
