Nonetheless, much of his work is debated by academics to this day making Freud a topic of great interest.

2. “Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.” – Sigmund Freud

3. “In the depths of my heart I can’t help being convinced that my dear fellow-men, with a few exceptions, are worthless.” – Sigmund Freud

4. “It is impossible to escape the impression that people commonly use false standards of measurement — that they seek power, success and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.” – Sigmund Freud

5. “The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is ‘What does a woman want?’” – Sigmund Freud

6. “If youth knew; if age could.” – Sigmund Freud

7. “A man who has been the indisputable favorite of his mother keeps for life the feeling of a conqueror.” – Sigmund Freud

8. “The ego is not master in its own house.” – Sigmund Freud

9. “Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.” – Sigmund Freud

10. “Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.” – Sigmund Freud

11.The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.” – Sigmund Freud

12. “The unconscious of one human being can react upon that of another without passing through the conscious.” – Sigmund Freud

But one thing about human beings puzzles me the most is their conscious effort to be connected with the object of their affection even if it kills them slowly within.” – Sigmund Freud

16. “Men are more moral than they think and far more immoral than they can imagine.” – Sigmund Freud

    I love the first 2 quotes which essentially say that what you don’t deal with will show up in your life in one form or another and that the times in your life in which you struggled the most were the most beautiful. I am not sure exactly what Freud was trying to convey in these quotes, but to my understanding, he was saying that trauma and heartbreak never leave you and unless you deal with them consciously, they will show up unconsciously and manifest itself in unhealthy behaviors and attitudes. I also feel that he was explaining that the times in your life in which you struggled the most were times in which you learned a lot about yourself, were introduced to another part of yourself, and discovered a lot about life in general. At least, that’s how I feel about adversity. Great article! I love all of these quotes.
