A few days ago, seventy-nine years had passed since the death of Sigmund Freud, a man whose name was to be synonymous with Psychoanalysis. He remains a great researcher of the human soul, a researcher who has studied and defined concepts such as human sexuality, unconsciousness, repulsion, the human soul itself and the mystery that surrounds it.
Although many of his theories have found opponents and critics or challenged, this has not diminished and has not allowed his own personality to lose its prestige and influence in the culture of the 20th century. He is recognized as one of the greatest thinkers of all time.
We've gathered some of his most important and most popular thoughts, which can inspire other people and trigger them in the process of inner deepening and personal study. Let's look at some of these.

''Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.''
''Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.''

''Immorality, no less than morality, has at all times found support in religion.''
