A Quote by Karl Augustus Menninger on children, enemies, justice, learning, energy, and love

A Quote by Karl Augustus Menninger on adulthood, children, emotion, experience, life, and people

A Quote by Karl Augustus Menninger

It is true, nevertheless, that in the end each man kills himself in his own selected way, fast or slow, soon or late. We all feel this, vaguely; there are so many occasions to witness it before our eyes. The methods are legion and it is these which attract our attention.
