Jacques Lacan Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Jacques Lacan from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Yet, analytical truth is not as mysterious,
or as secret, so as to not allow us to see that people
with a talent for directing consciences see truth rise spontaneously.
- Jacques Lacan

seem to you irrational because you take them in an isolated manner,
and you want to interpret them directly.
- Jacques Lacan

Since Freud, the center of man is not where we thought it was;
one has to go on from there.
- Jacques Lacan

The Mirror Stage as formative in the function of the
I as revealed in psychoanalytic experience.
- Jacques Lacan

 

The knowledge that there is a part of the psychic functions
that are out of conscious reach,
we did not need to wait for Freud to know this!
- Jacques Lacan

What could be more convincing, moreover,
than the gesture of laying one's cards face up on the table?

What does it matter how many lovers you have if none
of them gives you the universe?
- Jacques Lacan

Writings scatter to the winds blank checks in an insane charge.
And were they not such flying leaves,
there would be no purloined letters.
- Jacques Lacan

In other words, the man who is born into existence
deals first with language;
this is a given.
He is even caught in it before his birth.
- Jacques Lacan

Aside from that reservation, a fictive tale even has
the advantage of manifesting symbolic necessity more
purely to the extent that we may believe its conception arbitrary.
- Jacques Lacan

being by nature symbol only of an absence.
- Jacques Lacan

The narration, in fact, doubles the drama with a commentary
without which no mise en scene would be possible.

not even obsession for this, or for that in particular;
to be an obsessional means to find oneself caught in a mechanism,
in a trap increasingly demanding and endless.
- Jacques Lacan

As is known, it is in the realm of experience inaugurated
by psychoanalysis that we may grasp along what imaginary
lines the human organism,
in the most intimate recesses of its being,
manifests its capture in a symbolic dimension.
- Jacques Lacan

A geometry implies the heterogeneity of locus,
namely that there is a locus of the Other.
Regarding this locus of the Other, of one sex as Other,
as absolute Other, what does the most recent development
in topology allow us to posit?
- Jacques Lacan

But this emphasis would be lavished in vain,
if it served, in your opinion, only to abstract a general
type from phenomena whose particularity in our work
would remain the essential thing for you,
and whose original arrangement could be broken up only artificially.
- Jacques Lacan

Psychoanalysis is a terribly efficient instrument,
and because it is more and more a prestigious instrument,
we run the risk of using it with a purpose for which it was not made for,
and in this way we may degrade it.
- Jacques Lacan

Which is why we cannot say of the purloined letter that,
like other objects, it must be or not be in a particular
place but that unlike them it will be and not be where it is,
wherever it goes.
- Jacques Lacan

To know yet to think that one does not know is best;
Not to know yet to think that one knows
will lead to difficulty.
- Lao Tzu PHOTO

Every child comes with the message
that God is not yet discouraged of man.
- Rabindranath Tagore PHOTO

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
- Lao Tzu PHOTO

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -
the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

Nothing is softer or more flexible than water,
yet nothing can resist it.

We all live with the objective of being happy;
our lives are all different and yet the same.

You can never know the future, yet wandering aimlessly
is unlikely to be the source of a fulfilling life.

submissive and weak than water.
Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong,

- Epictetus

Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it -
that is the quickest and surest way
ever yet discovered to conquer fear.

What is your dream - your life-dream?
Have you begun to live it yet?

as though everything depended on it.
Yet our opinions have no permanence;
like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away.

of what good am I?

The Tao abides in non-action,
Yet nothing is left undone.
- Lao Tzu

A wise one said, "We are most like God when we forgive."
It is easy for us to blame, but hard for us to forgive.
Yet that is what we are called upon to do -
to forgive everyone for everything.
And the reward?
In this life, the reward for forgiveness
is your own happiness.
Unconditional universal forgiveness is
the key to your own happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

we have only friendships that we haven't yet developed

Yet all of creation cannot seem to stop talking about it.

It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline
when you're a winner, when you're number one.
What you've got to have is faith and discipline
when you're not yet a winner.

It's one of life's great paradoxes ...
Accepting with gratitude whatever life throws at us
is critical to happiness.
Yet without a goal and commitment, life lose much of its value.
The best we can do in the face of this paradox
is to play to win, but be cheerful in defeat
and ready to play again.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The Eye-of-the-Storm.
Surrounded by the winds and the rain,
yet peaceful in its own unworldly way -
an unnatural ruddy-cloudy misty-bright kind of way.
Whatever comes next, the eye of the storm is
a moment of serenity among the challenge -
a time for repose and contemplation.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I am a Paradox - a Duality - and yet an Entirely Unified ME.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

to notice and to pay attention.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Without play, one becomes old and dry.
Without service, life becomes meaningless.

is where we meet our ancestors

I still believe that people are really good at heart.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.
And how will I do this?
Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again.
I will love the sun for it warms my bones;
yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.
I will love the light for it shows me the way;
yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.
I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart;
yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.
I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due;
yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
- Og Mandino

The River of Life has no meaning, no good, no bad,
no better, no worse, no love, no hate, no fear, no anger, no joy.
The River of Life has no judgment, no expectation.
The River of Life just IS. There is nothing to do.
There is nothing to say.
There is nothing to think.
There is nothing to feel.
The River just flows. The River is the source of all nourishment -
the source of all obstacles.
The River is the source of all life - the source of all death.
The River is the source of all joy - and the source of all sorrow.
Yet the River has no joy - and the River has no sorrow.
The River is just the River.
One can flow harmoniously with the River -
or one can struggle fearfully against the River -
and the River just flows.
One can accept the River - or one can deny the River -
and the River just flows.
One can worship the River of Life - or one can curse the River of Life -
and the River just flows. There is nothing to do - and the River flows.
There is nothing to say - and the River flows.
There is nothing to think - and the River flows.
There is nothing to feel - and the River flows.
The River flows - and all else is our drama.
The River flows - and all else is our invention.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Suspended between earth and sky,
my humanity draws from both,
my tendrils reach for the energies of each.
Spirit and Ground - equal yet opposite,
the lightness and the solidarity,
the ephemeral and the substantial.
The substantial is no more and no less
than the ephemeral - merely different.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is strange to be known so universally
and yet to be so lonely.
- Albert Einstein

I am simultaneously ME - an independent BEing
of free-will and bold courage,
and ME - an integral and inseparable element
of the web of timeless creation.
I am a paradox - a duality -
and yet an entirely unified ME.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The past is no more and the future is not yet.
The only right person is one who lives moment to moment,
whose arrow is directed to the moment,
who is always here and now; wherever he is,
his whole consciousness, his whole being,
is involved in the reality of here and in the reality of now.
- Osho

Failure doesn't mean you are a failure it just means
you haven't succeeded yet.
- Robert H. Schuller

Marriage resembles a pair of shears,
so joined that they cannot be separated;
often moving in opposite directions,
yet always punishing anyone who comes between them.

The River of Life is the source of all joy -
and the source of all sorrow.
Yet the River has no joy -
and the River has no sorrow.
The River is just the River.

I cannot share your memories or your loss.

know that my heart reaches out with love to your heart.

yet made have lightened the day's toil of any human being.
