Carl Rogers quotes :
The very essence of the creative is its novelty, and hence we have no standard by which to judge it.Carl Rogers
In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?Carl Rogers
In a person who is open to experience each stimulus is freely relayed through the nervous system, without being distorted by any process of defensiveness.Carl Rogers
