    Quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

    • A joyful life is an individual creation that cannot be copied from a recipe.
      Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990
    • A person who forgoes the use of his symbolic skills is never really free.
      Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990
    • A self that is only differentiated - not integrated - may attain great individual accomplishments, but risks being mired in self-centered egotism. By the same token, a person who self is based exclusively on integration will be well connected and secure, but lack autonomous individuality. Only when a person invests equal amounts of psychic energy in these two processes and avoids both selfishness and conformity is the self likely to relect complexity.
      Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990
    • As long as we respond predictably to what feels good and what feels bad, it is easy for others to exploit our preferences for their own ends.
      Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990
    • Entropy is the normal state of consciousness - a condition that is neither useful nor enjoyable.
      Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990
