A Quote by Dr. Joost A. M. Meerloo, MD on emotion, lies, logic, nonsense, reason, and war

The big lie and monotonously repeated nonsense have more emotional appeal in a cold war than logic and reason.

A Quote by Dr. Joost A. M. Meerloo, MD on communication, language, reason, time, understanding, and words

Between two beings there is always the barrier of words. Man has so many ears and speaks so many languages. Should it nevertheless be possible to understand one another? Is real communication possible if word and language betray us every time? Shall, in the end, only the language of tanks and guns prevail and not human reason and understanding?

A Quote by Dr. Joost A. M. Meerloo, MD on civilization, conflict, confusion, culture, driving, men, planning, science, society, success, and understanding

If men can be made to understand that society, with its rigid codes and stratifications, is in its confused infancy rather than in the apex of its development; if they can be made to understand that the conflicts and contradictions of society can only be resolved by scientific long-range planning-then we will succeed in maintaining what civilization we have and drive onward to greater culture.
