„Život přináší jeden problém za druhým. Chceme nad nimi bědovat nebo je chceme řešit?“

„Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.“ The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth


„We must be willing to fail and to appreciate the truth that often "Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.“

„Since [narcissists] deep down, feel themselves to be faultless, it is inevitable that when they are in conflict with the world they will invariably perceive the conflict as the world's fault. Since they must deny their own badness, they must perceive others as bad. They project their own evil onto the world. They never think of themselves as evil, on the other hand, they consequently see much evil in others.“

„Human beings are poor examiners, subject to superstition, bias, prejudice, and a PROFOUND tendency to see what they want to see rather than what is really there.“ The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth

„Life is complex.
Each one of us must make his own path through life. There are no self-help manuals, no formulas, no easy answers. The right road for one is the wrong road for another... The journey of life is not paved in blacktop; it is not brightly lit, and it has no road signs. It is a rocky path through the wilderness.“

„Genuine love is volitional rather than emotional. The person who truely loves does so because of a decision to love. This person has made a commitment to be loving whether or not the loving feeling is present.... Conversely, it is not only possible but necessary for a loving person to avoid acting on feelings of love.“ The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth

„If we know exactly where we're going, exactly how to get there, and exactly what we'll see along the way, we won't learn anything.“


„All my life I used to wonder what I would become when I grew up. Then, about seven years ago, I realized that I was never going to grow up--that growing is an ever ongoing process.“

„You cannot truly listen to anyone and do anything else at the same time.“ The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth

„Abandon the urge to simplify everything, to look for formulas and easy answers, and to begin to think multidimensionally, to glory in the mystery and paradoxes of life, not to be dismayed by the multitude of causes and consequences that are inherent in each experience -- to appreciate the fact that life is complex.“

„How strange that we should ordinarily feel compelled to hide our wounds when we are all wounded! Community requires the ability to expose our wounds and weaknesses to our fellow creatures. It also requires the ability to be affected by the wounds of others... But even more important is the love that arises among us when we share, both ways, our woundedness.“


„It is in the whole process of meeting and solving problems that life has meaning. Problems are the cutting edge that distinguishes between success and failure. Problems call forth our courage and our wisdom; indeed, they create our courage and our wisdom. It is only because of problems that we grow mentally and spiritually. It is through the pain of confronting and resolving problems that we learn.“

„Consciousness and Healing

To proceed very far through the desert, you must be willing to meet existential suffering and work it through. In order to do this, the attitude toward pain has to change. This happens when we accept the fact that everything that happens to us has been designed for our spiritual growth.“
The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth

„Share our similarities, celebrate our differences.“

„I define love thus: The will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth.“ The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth
