A Quote by Sigmund Freud on anxiety, body, destruction, force, men, pain, suffering, and world

We are threatened with suffering from three directions: from our own body, which is doomed to decay and dissolution and which cannot even do without pain and anxiety as warning signals; from the external world, which may rage against us with overwhelming and merciless forces of destruction; and finally from our relations to other men. The suffering which comes from this last source is perhaps more painful than any other.

Sigmund Freud (1856 - 1939)
