Famous quotes containing the words erich fromm and/or fromm:

    The sadistic person is as dependent on the submissive person as the latter is on the former; neither can live without the other. The difference is only that the sadistic person commands, exploits, hurts, humiliates, and that the masochistic person is commanded, exploited, hurt, humiliated. This is a considerable difference in a realistic sense; in a deeper emotional sense, the difference is not so great as that which they both have in common: fusion without integrity.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)

    Man may be defined as the animal that can say “I,” that can be aware of himself as a separate entity.
    —Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
