"'At the heart of personality is the need to feel a sense of being lovable without having to qualify for that acceptance.' -- Dr. Paul Tournier"
I sure do agree with that.
Found via: Conversations with Dina: Thought for the Day
Because the quote interested me, I Googled Tournier, and found more. He seems to be a psychiatrist with connections to the combined disciplines of theology and psychology.
A sampling of other quotes:
"Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can."
"Nothing makes us so lonely as our secrets."
