Quotes by William Glasser - Founder of Reality Therapy

Caring for but never trying to own may be a further way to define friendship.

Don't marry someone you would not be friends with if there was no sex between you.

Everybody needs one essential friend.

Good or bad, everything we do is our best choice at that moment.

If everyone could learn that what is right for me does not make it right for anyone else, the world would be a much happier place.

If you want to change attitudes, start with a change in behavior.

In a Glasser Quality School there is no such thing as a closed book test. Students are told to get out their notes and open their books. There is no such thing as being forbidden to ask the teacher or another student for help.

It is almost impossible for anyone, even the most ineffective among us, to continue to choose misery after becoming aware that it is a choice.

Sex is on the minds of most people, especially those who shouldn't be having it.

Too many of us fail to fulfill our needs because we say no rather than yes, or perhaps later in life, yes when we should say no.

We almost always have choices, and the better the choice, the more we will be in control of our lives.

We are driven by five genetic needs: survival, love and belonging, power, freedom, and fun.

When we label anyone 'bad', we will have more trouble dealing with him than if we could have settled for a lesser label.

Without pay, no human being will work up to their ability if he or she is not cared for and respected.
