  • "Every person's map of the world is as unique as their thumbprint. There are no two people alike. No two people understand the same sentence the same way... So in dealing with people, you try not to fit them to your concept of what they should be." Milton H. Erickson

  • " A curious thought experiment... Nietzsche's message to us was to live life in such a way that we would be willing to repeat the same life eternally" Irvin Yalom

  • "It is now clear to me that the family is a microcosm of the world. To understand the world, we can study the family: issues such as power, intimacy, autonomy, trust, and communication skills are vital parts underlying how we live in the world. To change the world is to change the family." Virginia Satir
