Quote about Merely Educated Neurotics: What psycho-analysis reveals in the transference phenomena of neurotics can also be observed in the lives of some normal people.

Quotes about Merely Educated Neurotics: Third, and finally, the educated citizen has an obligation to uphold the law. This is the obligation of every citizen in a free and peaceful society--but the educated citizen has a special responsibility by the virtue of his greater understanding.

Merely Educated Neurotics Quote: The real difficulty is that people have no idea of what education truly is. We assess the value of education in the same manner as we assess the value of land or of shares in the stock-exchange market.

The girls, we say, do not have to earn; so why should they be educated? As long as such ideas persist there is no hope of our ever knowing the true value of education.
