It is an astonishing and hardly noticed psychological fact that one's own words once spoken are differently evaluated than those which we only think in our representations of words.
---Theodore Reik (1888 - 1969)
...One has information about one's experience only to the extent that one has tended to communicate it to another - or thought about it in the manner of communicative speech. Much of that which is ordinarily said to be repressed is merely unformulated.
---Harry Stack Sullivan (1892 - 1949)
You can not exert influence if you are not susceptible to influence.
---Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
