Alfred Adler
Meanings are not determined by situations, but we determine ourselves by the meanings we give to situations.
Adler quotes
It is always easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
The Adlerians, in the name of “individual psychology,” take the side of society against the individual. ... Adler’s later thought succumbs to the worst of his earlier banalization. It is conventional, practical, and moralistic. “Our science ... is based on common sense.” Common sense, the half-truths of a deceitful society, is honored as the honest truths of a frank world.

Adler Alfred quotes
Man knows much more than he understands.
Adler Alfred
To be human means to feel inferior.
Alfred Adler quotes
The striving for significance, this sense of yearning, always points out to us that all psychological phenomena contain a movement that starts from a feeling of inferiority and reach upward. The theory of Individual Psychology of psychological compensation states that the stronger the feeling of inferiority, the higher the goal for personal power.
