When one does not have what one wants, one must want what one has.

–Sigmund Freud

      1. You like the rhyme? or you agree with the idea?
        I don’t quite agree because it translates to one settling for less in life. No one starts out with what the want. And fulfillment only comes from achieving the object of one’s aspiration. If we remove that, there would be no passion, drive, or focus. I think life would be boring. Just my thinking.
        But I like it as a rhyme though, the literature of the statement.


        1. I “agree” with the idea, actually. I don’t think that it urges one to want less, rather, it suggests that one should be happy with what one has and shouldn’t be depressed if one doesn’t achieve his/her goals. But I like this kind of statements in that they are open to a variety of interpretations 🙂
