Karl A. Menninger Quotes

What’s done to children, they will do to society.

The voice of intelligence. . . is drowned out by the roar of fear. It is ignored by the voice of desire. It is contradicted by the voice of shame. It is biased by hate and extinguished by anger. Most of all it is silenced by ignorance.

We need to neutralize the aggression that wells up within us – often, strangely enough, against those who have the most in common with us. To understand all is to forgive all, and to know one another well enough, we should not hate one another but love one another.
