From the test situations which were used to reveal fears,
by Mary C. Jones

From the test situations which were used to reveal fears,
it was found that Peter showed even more marked fear
responses to the rabbit than to the rat.
- Mary C. Jones

Peter's fear of the animals which were shown him was
probably not a directly conditioned fear.
- Mary C. Jones

He showed in the last interview, as on the later portions of the chart,
a genuine fondness for the rabbit.
- Mary C. Jones

New situations requiring closer contact with the rabbit
had been gradually introduced and the degree to which
these situations were avoided,
tolerated, or welcomed, at each experimental session,
gave the measure of improvement.
- Mary C. Jones

 

Peter was 2 years and 10 months old when we began to study him.
He was afraid of a white rat, and this fear extended to a rabbit,
a fur coat, a feather, cotton wool, etc.,
but not to wooden blocks and similar toys.
- Mary C. Jones

From reading over the notes for each session it was
apparent that there had been improvement by more or
less regular steps from almost complete terror at sight
of the rabbit to a completely positive response with no signs of disturbance.
- Mary C. Jones

Nearly all men can stand adversity,
but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
- Abraham Lincoln

Eternity:
I am drawn to the wild edge of the ocean of my being
My curiosity unbound, I test the limits

I walk the path - the way - the way of ways -
to the end which is not an end.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

is to bear defeat without losing heart.

When does a belief bring out the best in you?
When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?
Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.
Be willing to let go of those beliefs
that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The difference between school and life?
In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test.
In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.
Fortunately, in most cases our own loving presence
is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test
who can finish first or who can end up with the most loot.
Rather, life is best enjoyed as a meander -
watching the view to left and right - above and below -
as the days slowly move past in dress review.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you want to test your memory, try to recall what
you were worrying about one year ago today.
- E. Joseph Cossman

The real test of friendship is: can you literally do
nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those

its the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time.
- David Allan Coe

whose blood is in your own veins.

The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind
him in other men the conviction and the will to carry on.
- Walter Lippmann

It is not our place to know the mind of God.
Spirit knows what is best in the long run -
best for each of us individually,
and best for humanity as a whole.
This is often very difficult to accept
when we see war and disease in the world
and experience physical and emotional suffering
in ourselves, our family, and our friends.
I consider this belief in God's infinite power
and ultimate wisdom to be the true test of faith.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The romantic love we feel toward the opposite sex is
probably one extra help from God to bring you together,

All the rest of it, the true love, is the test.
- Joan Chen
