Choosing a school, choosing a career, getting married, having kids - all those things are scary. If it is not fearful, it is not worthwhile  (Paul Tournier Quotes) There are two things we cannot do alone. One is to be married and the other is to be a Christian  (Paul Tournier Quotes) The most tragic consequence of our criticism of a man is to block his way to humiliation and grace, precisely to drive him into the mechanisms of self justification and into his faults instead of freeing him from them.

It has sacrificed art to science  (Paul Tournier Quotes) God leads us step by step, from event to event. Only afterward, as we look back over the way we have come and reconsider certain important moments in our lives in the light of all that has followed them, or when we survey the whole progress of our lives, do we experience the feeling of having been led without knowing it, the feeling that God has mysteriously guided us  (Paul Tournier Quotes) ...the highest sign of friendship is that of giving another the privilege of sharing your inner thought.  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Acceptance of one’s life has nothing to do with resignation; it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary, it means accepting it as it comes, with all the handicaps of heredity, of suffering, of psychological complexes and injustices  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Marriage teaches you loyalty, forbearance, self-restraint, meekness, and a great many other things you wouldn’t need if you had stayed single.  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Many ordinary illnesses are nothing but the expression of a serious dissatisfaction with life  (Paul Tournier Quotes) To be right is dangerous, it has ever been the source of all intolerance  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Nothing makes us so lonely as our secrets  (Paul Tournier Quotes) The more refined and subtle our minds, the more vulnerable they are  (Paul Tournier Quotes) The worst thing is not being wrong, but being sure one is not wrong  (Paul Tournier Quotes) If there had been no fear of failure, neither would there be any joy in success  (Paul Tournier Quotes) No one can develop freely in this world and find a full life without feeling understood by at least one person  (Paul Tournier Quotes) The really important thing in life is not the avoidance of mistakes, but the obedience of faith. By obedience, the man is led step by step to correct his errors, whereas nothing will ever happen to him if he doesn’t get going  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Let us not seek to bring religion to others, but let us endeavor to live it ourselves  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Recounting of a life story, a mind thinking aloud leads one inevitably to the consideration of problems which are no longer psychological but spiritual  (Paul Tournier Quotes) That is what marriage really means; helping one another to reach the full status of being persons, responsible and autonomous beings who do not run away from life  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Where there is no longer any opportunity for doubt, there is no longer any opportunity for faith either  (Paul Tournier Quotes) It is quite clear that between love and understanding there is a very close link... He who loves understands, and he who understands loves. One who feels understood feels loved, and one who feels loved feels sure of being understood  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Listen to all the conversations of our world, between nations as well as between individuals. They are, for the most part, dialogues of the deaf  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Your manner of life now is already determining your life in those years of old age and retirement, without your realizing it even, and perhaps without your giving enough thought to it. One must therefore prepare oneself for retirement  (Paul Tournier Quotes) Life can become once more a grand adventure if we will surrender it to God. He brings one adventure to an end, only to open another to us. With him we must be ready for anything  (Paul Tournier Quotes) The adventurous life is not one exempt from fear, but on the contrary, one that is lived in full knowledge of fears of all kinds, one in which we go forward in spite of our fears  (Paul Tournier Quotes) We are always looking for a grand program of action full of great ideas, when the thing is to begin by obeying the little ideas  (Paul Tournier Quotes) In order to really understand, we need to listen, not reply. We need to listen long and attentively. In order to help anybody to open his heart we have to give him time, asking only a few questions, as carefully as possible in order to help him better explain his experience  (Paul Tournier Quotes)
