Introduction to Psychology

The purpose of psychology is to give us a completely different idea of the things we know best.

-Paul Valéry, French poet/writer, 1871-1945

One of the annoying things about believing in free will and individual responsibility is the difficulty of finding somebody to blame your problems on. And when you do find somebody, it's remarkable how often his picture turns up on your driver's license.

-P. J. O'Rourke, U.S. social satirist, b. 1947

The will is never free-it is always attached to an object, a purpose. It is simply the engine in the car-it can't steer

-Joyce Cary, 1888-1957, British author
