„In the best books great men talk to us, give us their most precious thoughts, and pour their souls into ours. God be thanked for books.“

—  William Ellery Channing United States Unitarian clergyman 1780 - 1842

"Self-Culture", an address in Boston (September 1838) http://www.americanunitarian.org/selfculture.htm
Kontext: I have insisted on our own activity as essential to our progress; but we were not made to live or advance alone. Society is as needful to us as air or food. A child doomed to utter loneliness, growing up without sight or sound of human beings, would not put forth equal power with many brutes; and a man, never brought into contact with minds superior to his own, will probably run one and the same dull round of thought and action to the end of llfe.
It is chiefly through books that we enjoy intercourse with superior minds, and these invaluable means of communication are in the reach of all. In the best books great men talk to us, give us their most precious thoughts, and pour their souls into ours. God be thanked for books. They are the voices of the distant and the dead, and make us heirs of the spiritual life of past ages. Books are true levelers. They give to all, who will faithfully use them, the society, the spiritual presence, of the best and greatest of our race.

„The ego must be able to listen attentively and to give itself, without any further design or purpose, to that inner urge toward growth.“

—  Marie-Louise von Franz Swiss psychologist and scholar 1915 - 1998

"The Process of Individuation" - Part 3 in Man and His Symbols (1961) edited by C. G. Jung, p. 163
Kontext: The ego must be able to listen attentively and to give itself, without any further design or purpose, to that inner urge toward growth.... People living in cultures more securely rooted than our own have less trouble in understanding that it is necessary to give up the utilitarian attitude of conscious planning in order to make way for the inner growth of the personality.

„The fact is, you get great art only from mutilated egos. Only mutilated egos are obsessive enough.“

—  Camille Paglia American writer 1947

Playboy interview (May 1995)
Kontext: The fact is, you get great art only from mutilated egos. Only mutilated egos are obsessive enough. When I entered graduate school in 1968, 1 thought women were going to have all these enormous achievements, that they would redo everything. Then I saw every one of my female friends — these great minds who were going to transform the world — get married, move because their husbands moved and have babies. I screamed at them: What are you doing? Finish your great book! But they all read me the riot act. They said, "Camille, we are not you." They said, "We want life. We want love. We want happiness. We are not happy — like you are — just living off ideas." I am weird.
