Abraham Maslow: Humanistic Psychology

A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.

If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail

A first-rate soup is more creative than a second-rate painting.

What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.

We fear to know the fearsome and unsavory aspects of ourselves, but we fear even more to know the godlike in ourselves.

The fact is that people are good, Give people affection and security, and they will give affection and be secure in their feelings and their behavior.

The human being is simultaneously that which he is and that which he yearns to be.

The loss of illusions and the discovery of identity, though painful at first, can be ultimately exhilarating and strengthening.

The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.

Victory depends on whether or not a duelist has the courage to fight until the bitter end.
