Mary Pipher Quotes

Adolescents are travelers, far from home with no native land, neither children nor adults. They are jet-setters who fly from one country to another with amazing speed. Sometimes they are four years old, an hour later they are twenty-five. They don't really fit anywhere. There's a yearning for place, a search for solid ground.
Mary Pipher (20th century), U.S. clinical psychologist. Reviving Ophelia, ch. 3 (1994).
Maturity involves being honest and true to oneself, making decisions based on a conscious internal process, assuming responsibility for one's decisions, having healthy relationships with others and developing one's own true gifts. It involves thinking about one's environment and deciding what one will and won't accept.
Mary Pipher (20th century), U.S. clinical psychologist. Reviving Ophelia, ch. 13 (1994).
It's important for parents to watch for trouble and convey to their daughters that, if it comes, they are strong enough to deal with it. Parents who send their [adolescent] daughters the message that they'll be overwhelmed by problems aren't likely to hear what's really happening.
Mary Pipher (20th century), U.S. clinical psychologist. Reviving Ophelia, ch. 15 (1994).
