Helen Fairchild

Helen Fairchild
b. 11-21-1885; Turbot Township, Milton, Pennsylvania
d. 1-18-1918; Western Front (post operative complications)

Helen Fairchild became known through her war-time letters to her family while she served as part of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I.

Helen Fairchild quotes ~
• “We all live in tents and wade through mud to and from the operating room where we stand in mud higher than our ankles. It was some task, but dear old Major Harte, who I am up here with, got a car and a man; to go down to our hospital and get us some things. He brought me six clean uniforms and aprons, beside heaps of notes from all the nurses, letters from home and all kinds of fruit and cake.”
• “Rained some last night and is frightfully windy and cold. I put on some woolen clothing for we do not have any fires in the hut yet, but in spite of two pairs of stockings my feet are cold. Right now I stopped writing and got two hot water bottles and have my feet on one and the other in my lap.”

(penicillin discoverd 9-15-1928)

Alexander Fleming quote:

• “I have been trying to point out that in our lives chance may have an astonishing influence and, if I may offer advice to the young laboratory worker, it would be this - never to neglect an extraordinary appearance or happening.”

Viktor E. Frankl

Viktor E. Frankl, MD, PhD
b. 3-26-1905; Vienna
d. 9-2-1997; heart failure

Viktor E. Frankl, a survivor of the Holocaust, was the founder of logotherapy and a key figure in existential therapy.

Viktor E. Frankl quotes ~
• “Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone's task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.”
• “Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.”
• “Each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.”
• “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

Sigmund Freud
b. 5-6-1856; Moravia, Austria (now Czech Republic)
d. 9-23-1939; London

Neurologist and founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, developed theories about the unconscious mind. His clinical method for treating “mental illness, mental distress, and abnormal/maladaptive behavior” through dialogue between a patient (or “analysand”) and a psychoanalyst is popularly known as the “talking cure”. Freud's goal was “to locate and release powerful emotional energy that had initially been rejected or imprisoned in the unconscious mind”.

Sigmund Freud quotes ~
• “The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind.”
• “Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy.”
• “The madman is a dreamer awake.”
• “How bold one gets when one is sure of being loved.”
• “Psychoanalysis is in essence a cure through love.”
• “The psychic development of the individual is a short repetition of the course of development of the race.”
• “A sadist is always at the same time a masochist.”
• “I am actually not at all a man of science, not an observer, not an experimenter, not a thinker. I am by temperament nothing but a conquistador — an adventurer, if you want it translated — with all the curiosity, daring, and tenacity characteristic of a man of this sort.”
• “What progress we are making. In the Middle Ages they would have burned me. Now they are content with burning my books.”
• “It is impossible to escape the impression that people commonly use false standards of measurement – that they seek power, success and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.”
• “Thinking is an experimental dealing with small quantities of energy, just as a general moves miniature figures over a map before setting his troops in action.”
• “The voice of the intellect is a soft one, but it does not rest until it has gained a hearing.”
• “Everywhere I go I find a poet has been there before me.”
• “No mortal can keep a secret. If the lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips; betrayal oozes out of him at every pore.”
• “Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”
• “Religion is a system of wishful illusions together with a disavowal of reality, such as we find nowhere else but in a state of blissful hallucinatory confusion. Religion's eleventh commandment is ‘Thou shalt not question’.”
• “Just as no one can be forced into belief, so no one can be forced into unbelief.”
• “Time spent with cats is never wasted.”
• “What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.”
• “The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is ‘What does a woman want?’.”

• Lou Andreas-Salomé

FYI - Ever wonder where the word fuchsia comes from? Fuchs name was immortalized by the plant "Fuchsia triphylla, flore coccineo" first described on the island of Hispaniola c. 1698. The word fuchsia describes the color of the plants flowers.
