Ann Faraday

  • In forming a bridge between body and mind, dreams may be used as a springboard from which man can leap to new realms of experience lying outside his normal state of consciousness and enlarge his vision not only of himself, but also of the universe in which he lives.

  • I believe school life is in desperate need of a great deal more emphasis on emotional education, and it is a sign of our distorted social values that anyone should say the curriculum is too overloaded with academic work to allow for it. What does it profit a society to send its children to universities if they have nervous breakdowns when they get there, as more and more students are doing? What is the use of teaching children to think if their whole lives are going to be bedeviled by inability to get in touch with, understand, and cope with their emotions?

  • ... the surest guide to the meaning of a dream is the feeling and judgment of the dreamer himself, who deep down inside knows its meaning.

Ann Faraday, English psychologist

(1935)
