Quote of the Day (W.H. Auden, on Freud’s Influence on the Man-on-the-Street)

“Today, thanks to [Sigmund] Freud, the man-on-the-street knows (to quote by an inaccurate memory from Punch) that, when he thinks a thing, the thing he thinks is not the thing he thinks he thinks, but only the thing he thinks he thinks he thinks.” —English poet-critic W.H. Auden (1907-1973), “Sigmund Freud,” The New Republic, October 6, 1952
