Normal

Famous quotes containing the word normal:

    The word career is a divisive word. It’s a word that divides the normal life from business or professional life.
    Grace Paley (b. 1922)

    Like sleep disturbances, some worries at separation can be expected in the second year. If you accept this, then you will avoid reacting to this anxiety as if it’s your fault. A mother who feels guilty will appear anxious to the child, as if to affirm the child’s anxiety. By contrast, a parent who understands that separation anxiety is normal is more likely to react in a way that soothes and reassures the child.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)

    Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different.
    William James (1842–1910)
