“What is the key to releasing yourself from your emotional prison? Simply this: Your thoughts create your emotions; therefore, your emotions cannot prove that your thoughts are accurate.

But the fact that the baby ducks follow faithfully along doesn’t prove that the mother knows where she is going!” — David D. Burns M.D. (from “Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy“)
