Some of My Favorites

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the world of psychology and counseling.

A Freudian slip is when you say one thing but mean your mother.
~Author Unknown

Behavioral psychology is the science of pulling habits out of rats.
~Douglas Busch

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
~ Sigmund Freud
** Note: Freud was well known for his constant study of phallic symbolism, and yet, was still rarely seen without a cigar in his mouth, making him the target of his contemporaries' jokes.

Psychology doesn't address the soul; that's something else.
~David Chase, The Sopranos (character Carmela Soprano)

The hypothalamus is one of the most important parts of the brain, involved in many kinds of motivation, among other functions. The hypothalamus controls the "Four F's": fighting, fleeing, feeding, and mating.
~Psychology professor
