Sigmund Freud

Nowadays, Sigmund Freud quotes are often repeated by specialists as well as by common people. It seems that Freud quotes are still valuables. This is the result of the laborious work of Sigmund Freud, the Father of Psychoanalysis.

Freud worked hard in order to explain the human mind. He developed the theory of psychosexual development. He discovered the existence of the unconscious. According to his theory, human behavior is driven by sexual and aggressive instincts. Sigmund Freud wrote several books in order to describe his theories and help us better understand our feelings, our behavior, and our dreams. Freud believed we may discover our unconscious through dreams interpretation.
