"...the persons who get to the consulting rooms of psychotherapists and psychoanalysts are not a cross-section of the population. By and large they are the ones for whom the conventional pretenses and defenses of the society no longer work. Very often they are the more sensitive and gifted members of society; they need to get help, broadly speaking, because they are less successful at rationalizing than the 'well-adjusted' citizen who is able for the time being to cover up his [sic] underlying conflicts."

Our old way of thinking--that problems are to begotten rid of as soon as possible--overlooks the most important thing of all: that problems are a normal aspect of living and are basic to human creativity. This is true whether one is constructing things or reconstructing oneself. Problems are the outward signs of unused inner possibilities.
