FMSF News Alert - August 23, 2013
A few days ago, a member sent us two of her favorite quotes from Carl Sagan about recovered memories. It occurred to us that each of you probably has a favorite quote or quotes, and we wondered if you would be willing to share them with us. We thought that it would be great fun to read and share them.
When you send your quote to J. Bean, please include the source citation if you can. And as enthusiastic as you may get in this endeavor, please limit your reply to no more than four (4) quotes.
Below are the one of the quotes that inspired this email and another three that are a favorite of one of us:
"This is the greatest psychological psychiatric quackery of the twentieth century."
"When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not."
"Both sexual abuse therapists and alien abduction therapists spend months, sometimes years, encouraging their subjects to remember being abused. Their methods are similar, and their goals are in a way the same -- to recover painful memories, often of long ago."
"When I realized what had been done to me, I called a good psychologist. I told him, "These flashbacks seemed so real, I mean they were really real." He said, ‘They were real, Honey, but not reality.’"
