The list was endless, yet I couldn't get started. It was too much to think about. Doing it seemed impossible. Just like my life, I thought. Fatigue, a familiar feeling, overtook me. I headed for the bedroom. Once a luxury, naps had become a necessity. Sleeping was about all I could do. Where had my motivation gone? I used to have an excess of energy. Now it was an effort to comb my hair and apply makeup daily - an effort I frequently didn't put forth...." - Chapter One from Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself

"One of the most notable features of the worldwide evangelical movement during the last ten to fifteen years has been the recovery of our temporarily mislaid social conscience. For approximately fifty years (c.1920-70) evangelicals were preoccupied with the task of defending the historic biblical faith against the attacks of liberalism, and reacting against its 'social gospel.' But now we are convinced that God has given us social as well as evangelistic responsibilities in his world. Yet the half-century of neglect has put us far behind in this area. We have a long way to catch up...." - Introduction from Volume I - Involvement: Being a Responsible Christian in a Non-Christian Society

"When I was asked if I would be willing to write a book on death and dying, I enthusiastically accepted the challenge. When I actually sat down and began to wonder what I had got myself into, it became a different matter. Where do I begin? What do I include? How much can I say to strangers who are going to read this book, how much can I share from this experience with dying patients? How many things are communicated nonverbally and have to be felt, experienced, seen, and can hardly be translated into words?" - Preface from On Death And Dying

"Conversing with children is a unique art with rules and meanings of its own. Children are rarely naive in their communications. Their messages are often in a code, that requires deciphering. Andy, age ten, asked his father, 'What is the number of abandoned children in Harlem?' Father a chemist and an intellectual, was glad to see his son take an interest in social problems. He gave a long lecture on the subject and then looked up the figure. But Andy was not satisfied and kept on asking questions on the same subject: 'What is the number of abandoned children in New York city?' 'in the United States?' 'in Europe?' 'in the world?' Finally it occurred to father that his son was concerned, not about a social problem, but by a personal one. His questions stemmed not so much from sympathy for abandoned children as from fear of being abandoned. He was looking, not for a figure representing the number of deserted children, but for reassurance that he would not be deserted...." - Chapter One from Between Parent And Child

The techniques or skills which the counselor employs are expressions and implementations of the latter's values and perceptions of reality.... - " Chapter One from An Introduction To Therapeutic Counseling
