Jewish atheists quotes (Author category)1-5 Quotations of 1254
Life as we find it, is too hard for us: it brings us too many pains, disappointments and impossible tasks. In order to bear it, we cannot dispense with palliative measures…There are three such measures: powerful deflections, which cause us to make light of our misery; substitute satisfactions, which diminish it; and intoxicating substances which make us insensitive to it.
~ Sigmund Freud (May 06, 1856 - September 23, 1939)
