Alfred Adler – Spurred on by longing for superiority

Share this quote:
Alfred AdlerWhether a person desires to be an artist, the first in his profession, or a tyrant m his home, to hold converse with God or humiliate other people; whether he regards his suffering as the most important thing in the world to which everyone must show obeisance, whether he is chasing after unattainable ideals or old deities, over stepping all limits and norms, at every part of his way he is guided and spurred on by his longing for superiority, the thought of his godlikeness, the belief in his special magical power.
