Quotes About Crooks

"Were living in a funny world kid, a peculiar civilization. The police are playing crooks in it, and the crooks are doing police duty.

Quotes About Practice And Hard Work

"Therapy when practiced well is a fine but delicately balanced intervention in another persons life. It requires a devotion to truth and a merciless pursuit of right living.

But that level of engagement with clients is also extremely demanding and it can never be achieved by trotting out stereotyped tricks from approved textbooks." - Author: Emmy Van Deurzen

Quotes About Motive And Trust

"There is a twilight zone in our hearts that we ourselves cannot see. Even when we know quite a lot about ourselves-our gifts and weaknesses, our ambitions and aspirations, our motives and our drives-large parts of ourselves remain in the shadow of consciousness. This is a very good thing. We will always remain partially hidden to ourselves. Other people, especially those who love us, can often see our twilight zones better than we ourselves can. The way we are seen and understood by others is different from the way we see and understand ourselves. We will never fully know the significance of our presence in the lives of our friends. Thats a grace, a grace that calls us not only to humility, but to a deep trust in those who love us. It is the twilight zones of our hearts where true friendships are born." - Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen
