Reason is like an open secret that can become known to anyone at any time; it is the quiet space into which everyone can enter through his own thought.

Karl Jaspers

Klopstock was questioned regarding the meaning of a passage in his poem. He replied, 'God and I both knew what it meant once; now God alone knows.'

Cesare Lombroso

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.

Karl A. Menninger

Life is not what it's supposed to be. It's what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.

Great quotes Don! Makes me think of all the ones I miss when I stay away.

Love the Menninger one and the Satir one rings true as well.
