Famous quotes containing the words effects and/or special:

    Whereas Freud was for the most part concerned with the morbid effects of unconscious repression, Jung was more interested in the manifestations of unconscious expression, first in the dream and eventually in all the more orderly products of religion and art and morals.
    Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)

    The great rule: If the little bit you have is nothing special in itself, at least find a way of saying it that is a little bit special.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
