Book List: Sex and the Senses – Compromise

“…the fact remains that he who through self-knowledge acquires mastery over his own psychic resources is best prepared to master also the forces of an environment ethically like himself. He does not have to go through so lengthy and painful a period of adjustment as less practical, tender-minded members of society. The single-track practical mind saves itself tremendous wear and tear; for the many-sided mind is often a mind divided against itself. The practical man is impressed with the advantages of adhering to the standards set by the environment. He knows that only by limiting the quality of his aspirations to the standards set  by the society in which he lives may he achieve what is popularly called “success,” while pursuing his personal ends.”

~James Samuel Van Teslaar, Sex and the Senses
