1. "In therapy, to meet the needs of traumatized survivors of war and torture, the patient is requested to repeatedly talk about the worst traumatic event in detail while re-experiencing all emotions associated with the event.

Author: Alfred Nestor

Author: Brett Hoebel

Author: Christopher Cross

Here are some tips from Dr. LaValle to reduce your exposure: 1. Limit drinking out of plastic containers, and when you do, drink only from containers that are free of bisphenol A, better known as BPA. 2. Do not microwave food in plastic containers or covered in plastic. 3. Avoid using personal care items such as face creams, cosmetics, shampoos, tampons, and toiletries that contain environmental estrogens and particularly phthalates. Phthalates are synthetic substances found in many plastics. They have estrogenic properties and are banned as a toxic substance in Europe."
Author: Daniel G. Amen
7. "...those cries rose from among the twisted rootsthrough which the spirits of the damned were slinkingto hide from us. Therefore my Master said:'If you break off a twig, what you will learnwill drive what you are thinking from your head.'Puzzled, I raised my hand a bit and slowlybroke off a branchlet from an enormous thorn:and the great trunk of it cried: 'Why do you break me?'And after blood had darkened all the bowlof the wound, it cried again: 'Why do you tear me?Is there no pity left in any soul?Men we were, and now we are changed to sticks;well might your hand have been more mercifulwere we no more than souls of lice and ticks.'As a green branch with one end all aflamewill hiss and sputter sap out of the otheras the air escapes- so from that trunk there camewords and blood together, gout by gout.Startled, I dropped the branch that I was holdingand stood transfixed by fear,..."
Author: Dante Alighieri
8. "It is a mark of the depth of their wounding that they are pretending they suspected it all along. Everything that they have seen and been told about love so far has been an inside perspective, and they are not prepared for the crashing weight of this exclusion. It dawns on them now how much they never saw and how little they were wanted, and with this dawning comes a painful re-imagining of the self as peripheral, uninvited, and utterly minor."
Author: Eleanor Catton
9. "FROM A WILD NIGHT'S BRIDE by Victoria Vane:His gaze glued to the bed, Ned made a mechanical backward retreat to the center of the room where he had a clearer prospect of its crowning glory. His vision rose to the top of the headboard, to the heraldic shield seated betwixt the carved figures of a lion and a unicorn. His gaze slid with dread to the engraved scroll beneath. Dieu Et Mon Driot. God and my right, the motto of the king. His chest seized. The room began to spin. He looked to Phoebe, aware that the blood was draining from his face, and that his voice emerged as a strangled sound. "May the same God save me...for I'm going to be hung, drawn, and quartered for spending last night rutting in the King of England's bed!" coming April 27, 2012 from Breathless Press"
Author: Emery Lee
10. "He actually had a relationship once with someone who'd committed suicide. Not emotional, physical. It happened in the army. He was serving in general-staff headquarters at the time, and he'd been brought up on charges of being seen with his boots unpolished. And just when he was walking past the tall staff headquarters building, someone dropped to the ground next to him, splattered. A girl-soldier, they said, with a broken heart, a corporal, Liat Something. Later he remembered hearing a kind of scream above him as she was falling. But he hadn't looked up. The sound didn't even register.He reached the hearing all covered in her blood. They let him off. Liat Atlas. That was her name. They even called on him later, to testify at the military police investigation. It couldn't go on this way, that much he knew. Maybe he needed therapy."
Author: Etgar Keret
11. "He said that people who loved [animals] to excess were capable of the worst cruelties toward human beings. He said that dogs were not loyal but servile, that cats were opportunists and traitors, that peacocks were heralds of death, that macaws were simply decorative annoyances, that rabbits fomented greed, that monkeys carried the fever of lust, and that roosters were damned because they had been complicit in the three denials of Christ."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
12. "I have tried therapy a couple of times, but it hasn't worked."
Author: Gail Porter
13. "Lutherans don't hold bingo games in the church basement. Lutherans are against fun in general, which is why for them, birth control has never been a big issue."

Das ist sehr langweilig, immer das Hemdzuerst und dann die Hosen drüber zu ziehen und des Abends ins Bett undmorgens wieder herauszukriechen und einen Fuß immer so vor den andernzu setzen; da ist gar kein Absehen, wie es anders werden soll. Das istsehr traurig, und daß Millionen es schon so gemacht haben, und daßMillionen es wieder so machen werden, und daß wir noch obendrein auszwei Hälften bestehen, die beide das nämliche tun, so daß allesdoppelt geschieht - das ist sehr traurig."
Author: Georg Büchner

Author: Harold Bloom
16. "My world foreshortened, flattening into a credit card. Seen head on, things seemed merely skewed, but from the side the view was virtually meaningless--a one-dimensional wafer. Everything about me may have been crammed in there, but it was only plastic. Indecipherable except to some machine."
Author: Haruki Murakami

Author: Irvin D. Yalom
19. "What? 'Borderline patients play games'? That what you said? Ernest, you'll never be a real therapist if you think like that. That's exactly what I meant earlier when I talked about the dangers of diagnosis. There are borderlines and there are borderlines. Labels do violence to people. You can't treat the label; you have to treat the person behind the label. (17)"
Author: Irvin D. Yalom
20. "Come si può non vedere nel tempo lungo che ci finirà e finisce con il perderci ci perderà? Non intuire né indovinare la sua trama, la sua macchinazione e la sua danza in cerchio, non fiutare il suo malanimo o respirare il suo squallore, non captare il suo torbido agguato e la sua lentissima e illanguidente attesa e la conseguente impazienza che chissà per quanti anni avrà dovuto tenere a freno? Come posso non conoscere oggi il tuo volto domani, quello che già esiste o trama sotto la faccia che mostri o sotto la maschera che indossi, e che mi mostrerai soltanto quando non me lo aspetto?"
Author: Javier Marías
21. "It reminded Lacy of running into someone you hadn't seen for a while, and finding her bald and missing her eyebrows: you knew she was in the throes of chemotherapy, but pretended you didn't, because it was easier that way for both of you."
Author: Jodi Picoult
22. "On the second Thursday of the month, Mrs. Dombrowski brings her dead husband to our therapy group."
Author: Jodi Picoult

Author: John Jay Hooker

Author: Joseph J. Lhota

Author: Langston Hughes

Yet you know that I am not Scheherazade, and that one of the world's greatest wonders is that I am unable to enter my country or pass through the region around it."
Author: Liana Badr
29. "Words of comfort, skillfully administered, are the oldest therapy known to man."
Author: Louis Nizer
30. "While the primary function of formal Buddhist meditation is to create the possibility of the experience of "being," my work as a therapist has shown me that the demands of intimate life can be just as useful as meditation in moving people toward this capacity. Just as in formal meditation, intimate relationships teach us that the more we relate to each other as objects, the greater our disappointment. The trick, as in meditation, is to use this disappointment to change the way we relate."
Author: Mark Epstein
31. "I don't think the people today who start hearing voices, stop eating and sleeping, and run amuck are likely to get good treatment. Having more knowledge, better diagnostic capabilities, better medications with fewer side effects, can't make up for the fact that most patients are being treated by doctors, therapists, and hospitals, who are operating under constraints and incentives that reward non-treatment, non-hospitalization, non-therapy, non-follow-up, non-care. Lost to follow-up is the best outcome a health insurer can hope for."
Author: Mark Vonnegut
32. "In all the years I've been a therapist, I've yet to meet one girl who likes her body."
Author: Mary Pipher

Author: Meghan Markle
34. "Stories are masks of God.That's a story, too, of course. I made it up, in collaborations with Joseph Campbell and Scheherazade, Jesus and the Buddha and the Brother's Grimm.Stories show us how to bear the unbearable, approach the unapproachable, conceive the inconceiveable. Stories provide meaning, texture, layers and layers of truth.Stories can also trivialize. Offered indelicately, taken too literally, stories become reductionist tools, rendering things neat and therefore false. Even as we must revere and cherish the masks we variously create, Campbell reminds us, we must not mistake the masks of God for God.So it seemes to me that one of the most vital things we can teach our children is how to be storytellers. How to tell stories that are rigorously, insistently, beautifully true. And how to believe them."
Author: Melanie Tem
35. "The role of the therapist is to reflect the being/accepting self that was never allowed to be in the borderline."
Author: Michael Adzema
36. "Democritus and Heraclitus were two philosophers, of whom the first, finding the condition of man vain and ridiculous, never went out in public but with a mocking and laughing face; whereas Heraclitus, having pity and compassion on this same condition of ours, wore a face perpetually sad, and eyes filled with tears. I prefer the first humor; not because it is pleasanter to laugh than to weep, but because it is more disdainful, and condemns us more than the other; and it seems to me that we can never be despised as much as we deserve. Pity and commiseration are mingled with some esteem for the thing we pity; the things we laugh at we consider worthless. I do not think there is as much unhappiness in us as vanity, nor as much malice as stupidity. We are not so full of evil as of inanity; we are not as wretched as we are worthless."
Author: Michel De Montaigne
37. "Storytellers continue their narratives late into the night to forestall death and to delay the inevitable moment when everyone must fall silent. Scheherazade's story is a desperate inversion of murder; it is the effort, throughout all those nights, to exclude death from the circle of existence."
Author: Michel Foucault
38. "Acting's not particularly complicated. But the great thing is you can step into somebody else's shoes without dealing with the consequences. It's very therapeutic in that way."
Author: Nick Robinson
39. "A therapist who rushes to help forgets to listen."
Author: Noam Shpancer
40. "Mais je croy que je Suis descendu on puiz Ténébreux onquel disoit Heraclytus estre Vereté cachée."
Author: Robert W. Chambers
41. "I guess I usually write when I'm in a really intense headspace, because it's my form of self-therapy."
Author: Sharon Van Etten
42. "Zeus is the king, right? (Simone)He thinks he is most days. Personally, I think he's a pompous ass who should be bitch-slapped by Hera at least once in his existence. (Xypher)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
43. "Therapeutic"
Author: Sigmund Freud
44. "I had a prostatectomy in the fall and fortunately it was encapsulated and I didn't have to go through chemotherapy."
Author: Steve Garvey
45. "I'm a peripheral visionary."
Author: Steven Wright
46. "#4. Spend more time considering areas of agreement than disagreement. The doctrines you share with other true believers are the foundational doctrines; the ones you do not share are necessarily less central to the faith. Acknowledging that you and those with whom you disagree will spend eternity together should encourage you to not allow peripheral doctrines to separate you here on earth."
Author: Thomas Brooks
47. "A Lutheran church in Nebraska is typically a place where any mad passion for Christ is politely concealed. Men and women recite the various creeds in hypnotic monotone; the hymns, pumped from wheezy organ pipes, are sung with no lilt or musicality. The members of the choirs not only don't dance, they don't sway. That's not to say no one is ever smacked hard with God's love or filled up to the eyeballs with the Holy Spirit, but when you are, you keep it to yourself." (48)"
Author: Timothy Schaffert
48. "Talking about independence makes me wonder, Who is truly independent in this world? A farmer who grows food is dependent on a baker, a barber, a doctor, and so on. A doctor is dependent on other people of different professions in order to survive. I am dependent and will be dependent on certain caregivers and therapists. Those caregivers and therapists need people like me to earn their bread and butter and draw their salaries. So no one is doing any favors when choosing whatever his means of livelihood is."
Author: Tito Rajarshi Mukhopadhyay
49. "Nel secolo decimonono, l'idea religiosa subisce una crisi: si disimparano alcune cose, il che è bene, a patto che, disimparando questo, si impari quello. Nessun vuoto, nel cuore umano! Si fanno talune demolizioni ed è bene; ma a condizione che siano seguite da ricostruzioni. Nel frattempo, studiamo le cose che non son più. E' necessario conoscerle, non fosse che per evitarle. Le contraffazioni del passato prendono falsi nomi e si chiaman volentieri l'avvenire; quel fantasma ch'è il passato è soggetto a falsificare il suo passaporto. Mettiamoci a conoscenza del tranello e diffidiamo. Il passato ha un viso, la superstizione, ed una maschera, l'ipocrisia: denunciamo il viso e strappiamo la maschera."
Author: Victor Hugo
50. "I couldn't speak well. I went to speech therapy for 10 years. And I was sort of frustrated in that sense."
Author: Walter Dean Myers
