Rogers, Carl

The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.

Carl Rogers placed emphasis on human potential, which had an enormous influence on both psychology and education. He became one of the major humanist thinkers and an eponymous influence in therapy with his client-centered therapy.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.

The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.

When I look at the world I’m pessimistic, but when I look at people I am optimistic.
What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly.
The very essence of the creative is its novelty, and hence we have no standard by which to judge it.
