Quote of the day

Every psychological extreme secretly contains its own opposite or stands in some intimate and essential relationship to it. Indeed it is from this tension that it derives its peculiar dynamism. There is no hallowed custom that cannot on occasion turn into its opposite, and the more extreme a position is, the more easily may we expect an enantiodroma, a conversion of something into its opposite.
