America’s greatest sin is the refusal to delay gratification  (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) You must have something in order to give it up  (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) 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) 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) 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) Listening well is an exercise of attention and by necessity hard work. It is because they do not realize this or because they are not willing to do the work that most people do not listen well  (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) Love is too large, too deep ever to be truly understood or measured or limited within the framework of words  (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) 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) Sickness begets chaos, which, through hard work and a touch of grace, leads to growth and resurrection  (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) Problems are the cutting edge that distinguishes between success and failure. Problems... create our courage and wisdom  (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) 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) 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) 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) Servant-leadership is more than a concept, it is a fact. Any great leader, by which I also mean an ethical leader of any group, will see herself or himself as a servant of that group and will act accordingly  (M Scott Peck Quotes) When we avoid the legitimate suffering that results from dealing with problems, we also avoid the growth that problems demand from us.  (M Scott Peck Quotes) I define love thus: The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth.  (M Scott Peck Quotes) The will to grow is, in essence, the same phenomenon as love. Genuinely loving people are, by definition, growing people.  (M Scott Peck Quotes) When we teach ourselves and our children discipline, we are teaching them and ourselves how to suffer and also how to grow.  (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)
