Erik Erikson
Healthy children will not fear life if their elders have integrity enough not to fear death.
Erikson quotes
Children love and want to be loved and they very much prefer the joy of accomplishment to the triumph of hateful failure. Do not mistake a child for his symptom.
Erikson
All world-images are apt to become corrupt when left to ecclesiastic bureaucracies. But this does not make the formation of world-images expendable. And I can only repeat that we deny the remnants of old-world images at our own risk, because we do not overcome them by declaring them with all the righteousness of skepticism something of a secret sin. They are not less powerful for being denied.




Erikson Erik quotes
Doubt is the brother of shame.
Erikson Erik
When established identities become outworn or unfinished ones threaten to remain incomplete, special crises compel men to wage holy wars, by the cruelest means, against those who seem to question or threaten their unsafe ideological bases.
