„Healing requires conscious choices“

— Caroline Myss author from the United States 1952
Context: Healing requires conscious choices… Very few alcoholics want to give up liquor. Obese people don’t want to give up food. Diabetics don’t want to give up sugar. People in toxic relationships don’t want to leave because that’s what they know. It’s change. People are afraid of change. As quoted in "Caroline Myss' Journey" by Terry Loncaric, at Conscious Choice (September 2003)


„The members of a society do not make conscious choices in arriving at a particular way of life.“

— Peter Farb American academic and writer 1929 - 1980
Context: The members of a society do not make conscious choices in arriving at a particular way of life. Rather, they make unconscious adaptations.... they know only that a particular choice works, even though it may appear bizarre to an outsider.<!-- p. 13
