Martha Wolfenstein

  • The child feels that in learning the names of persons and things he gains a marvelous power over them. When he calls the name of a person, does not that person come to him? When he calls the name of a thing, is it not supplied?

Martha Wolfenstein, U.S. psychoanalyst, writer

(1911 - 1976)
