Famous quotes containing the words harvard university, university and/or harvard:

    As a medium of exchange,... worrying regulates intimacy, and it is often an appropriate response to ordinary demands that begin to feel excessive. But from a modernized Freudian view, worrying—as a reflex response to demand—never puts the self or the objects of its interest into question, and that is precisely its function in psychic life. It domesticates self-doubt.
    Adam Phillips, British child psychoanalyst. “Worrying and Its Discontents,” in On Kissing, Tickling, and Being Bored, p. 58, Harvard University Press (1993)

    If not us, who? If not now, when?
    —Slogan by Czech university students in Prague, November 1989. quoted in Observer (London, Nov. 26, 1989)

    The slime pool that the dog drowned in . . .
    A drunk vomiting up a teaspoon of bile . . .
    Washing the polio off the grapes when I was ten . . .
