Three for Monday

"The one thing a family can't prepare us for is life outside the family."

Adam Phillips, from On Balance, p. 157


"If others examined themselves attentively, as I do, they would find themselves, as I do, full of inanity and nonesense. Get rid of it I cannot without giving up myself. We are all steeped in it, one as much as another; but those who are aware of it are a little better off--though I don't know."

Michel de Montaigne, from The Essays


"We all think we have reason to reproach nature and our destiny for congenital and infantile disadvantages, we all demand reparation for early wounds to our narcissism, our self-love."

Sigmund Freud on Richard III.
