„The Little Man does not want to hear the truth about himself. He does not want the great responsibility which is his. He wants to remain a Little Man.“

—  Wilhelm Reich, buch Listen, Little Man!

Listen, Little Man! (1948)
Kontext: My intellect tells me: "Tell the truth at any cost." The Little Man in me says: "It is stupid to expose oneself to the little man, to put oneself at his mercy. The Little Man does not want to hear the truth about himself. He does not want the great responsibility which is his. He wants to remain a Little Man. He wants to remain a Little Man, or wants to become a little great man. He wants to become rich, or a party leader, or commander of a legion, or secretary of the society for the abolition of vice. But he does not want to assume responsibility for his work..."
