“What We Are in Potentiality”

“One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.”    (Andre Gide)


“He who knows much about others may be learned, but he who understands himself is more intelligent.   He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.”    (Lao-Tsu)


“We are not in a position in which we have nothing to work with.   We already have a start; we already have capacities, talents, direction, missions, callings.   The job is, if we are willing to take it seriously, to help ourselves to be more perfectly what we already are, to be more full, more actualizing, more realizing, in fact, what we are in potentiality.”     (Abraham Maslow, The Farthest Reaches of Human Nature
