— Sigmund Freud, “The Future Prospects of Psycho-Analytic Therapy” (1910)
"At its beginning psycho-analytic treatment was inexorable and exhausting. The patient had to say everything himself, and the physician’s activity consisted of urging him on incessantly. To-day things have a more friendly air. The treatment is made up of two parts—what the physician infers and tells the patient, and the patient’s working-over of what he has heard."
