Personal Quote:

I've often wondered, because of my frequent sojourns in America, how much good psychiatry and all the rest of it was doing those of my acquaintances who were in treatment. I know a couple who appear to have benefited from it, but most, whatever they may think, haven't changed at all. I began to wonder some time ago whether it might not be a false religion with a lot of worshipers. See more »
