Quote for the Week

Most extremely healthy people frequently experience of intense affirmation and certainty; Maslow called these “peak experiences.” No one had made this discovery before because it had never struck anyone that a science calling itself “psychology” and professing to be a science of the human mind (not merely the sick mind), ought to form its estimate of human beings by taking into account healthy minds as well as sick ones. A sick man talks obsessively about his illness; a healthy man never talks about his health; for as Pirandello points out, we take happiness for granted, and only begin to question life when we are unhappy.
