Text Quotes
You must have something in order to give it up  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Life is difficult  (M Scott Peck Quotes) All human interactions are opportunities either to learn or to teach  (M Scott Peck Quotes) America’s greatest sin is the refusal to delay gratification  (M Scott Peck Quotes) The feeling of being valuable is a cornerstone of self-discipline because when you consider yourself valuable you will take care of yourself- including things like using your time well. In this way, self-discipline is self-caring  (M Scott Peck Quotes) The major threats to our survival no longer stem from nature without but from our own human nature within. It is our carelessness, our hostilities, our selfishness and pride and willful ignorance that endanger the world  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Delaying gratification is a process of scheduling the pain and pleasure of life in such a way as to enhance the pleasure by meeting and experiencing the pain first and getting it over with. It is the only decent way to live  (M Scott Peck Quotes) An unconscious, gentle process whereby people who want to be loving attempt to be so by telling little white lies, by withholding some of the truth about themselves and their feelings in order to avoid conflict. Pseudocommunity is conflict-avoiding; true community is conflict-resolving  (M Scott Peck Quotes) The overall purpose of human communication is - or should be - reconciliation. It should ultimately serve to lower or remove the walls of misunderstanding which unduly separate us human beings, one from another  (M Scott Peck Quotes) It is in the whole process of meeting and solving problems that life has meaning. Problems are the cutting edge that distinguishes between success and failure. Problems call forth our courage and our wisdom; indeed, they create our courage and our wisdom. It is only because of problems that we grow mentally and spiritually. It is through the pain of confronting and resolving problems that we learn  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Consciousness and Healing To proceed very far through the desert, you must be willing to meet existential suffering and work it through. In order to do this, the attitude toward pain has to change. This happens when we accept the fact that everything that happens to us has been designed for our spiritual growth  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters  (M Scott Peck Quotes) The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Good discipline requires time. When we have no time to give our children, or no time that we are willing to give, we don’t even observe them closely enough to become aware of when their need for our disciplinary assistance is expressed subtley  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Whenever we seek to avoid the responsibility for our own behavior, we do so by attempting to give that responsibility to some other individual or organization or entity. But this means we then give away our power to that entity  (M Scott Peck Quotes) I guess if you want to know one single thing I’m about, it’s that I’m against easy answers  (M Scott Peck Quotes) The more effort we make to appreciate and perceive reality, the larger and more accurate our maps will be. But many do not want to make this effort  (M Scott Peck Quotes) What people get admired and appreciated for in community are their soft skills: their sense of humor and timing, their ability to listen, their courage and honesty, their capacity for empathy  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Problems are the cutting edge that distinguishes between success and failure. Problems... create our courage and wisdom  (M Scott Peck Quotes) But I already saw no great difference between the psyche and spirituality. To amass knowledge without becoming wise is not my idea of progress in therapy  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Sickness begets chaos, which, through hard work and a touch of grace, leads to growth and resurrection  (M Scott Peck Quotes) By far the most important form of attention we can give our loved ones is listening... True listening is love in action  (M Scott Peck Quotes) We are most often in the dark when we are the most certain, and the most enlightened when we are the most confused  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Love is too large, too deep ever to be truly understood or measured or limited within the framework of words  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Problems are the cutting edge that distinguishes between success and failure. Problems ... create our courage and wisdom.  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Sickness begets chaos, which, through hard work and a touch of grace, leads to growth and resurrection.  (M Scott Peck Quotes) The principal form that the work of love takes is attention. When we love another person we give him or her our attention; we attend to that person’s growth.  (M Scott Peck Quotes) Nirvana or lasting enlightenment or true spiritual growth can be achieved only through persistent exercise of real love.  (M Scott Peck Quotes) But for the first time, I had a religious identity. I had come home. And so I called myself a Zen Buddhist at the age of 18.  (M Scott Peck Quotes) I guess if you want to know one single thing I’m about, it’s that I’m against easy answers.  (M Scott Peck Quotes)
