Erich Fromm, Man For Himself
"If you’re going through hell, keep going."
the power of a hot shower!
"I wish the whole day were like breakfast, when people are still connected to their dreams, focused inward, and not yet ready to engage with the world around them. I realized this is how I am all day; for me, unlike other people, there doesn’t come a moment after a cup of coffee or a shower or whatever when I suddenly feel alive and awake and connected to the world. If it were always breakfast, I would be fine."
"Until you get comfortable with being alone, you’ll never know if you’re choosing someone out of love or loneliness."
"Yes, I do enjoy walking at night. The world’s more to my liking then, not so loud, not so fast, not so crowded, and a good deal more mysterious."
