Dream diagnosis

"As late as 1910, Professor Wilhelm Weygandt, who had reviewed The Interpretation of Dreams in 1901, not very generously, could exclaim to the Hamburg Congress of Neurologists and Psychiatrists that Freud's theories were a matter not for discussion at a scientific gathering, but for the police." Peter Gay, Freud: A Life for Our Time.




Further:
"The Americans, [Freud] told Sandor Rado, "transfer the democtratic principle from politics into science. Everybody must become president once, no one must remain president, none may excel before the others, and thus all of them neither learn nor achieve anything."

of USians:
"This race, he once told his physician Max Schur, "is destined to extinction. They can no longer open their mouths to speak; soon they won't be able to do so to eat."

Might or might not be gay, but it's basically correct, in my opinion.
