PL Reflections

Updated: Jun 8

In the PL newsletter, aphorisms or brief comments were included as PL Reflections. Here in this column, the new PL website will continue this tradition with occasional contributions.



I always loved the young boy's prayer: "Oh God, make all the bad people good, and make all the good people nice."

Harry Emerson Fosdick (On Being a Real Person)


Reality is never as good or as bad as our wishes or our fears.

John Gunderson


Statistics on suicide:

A simple way to remember basic numbers is the following:

About half of all persons with clinical depression have suicidal ideation.

About 1/3 of all persons with clinical depression make suicide attempts.

About 10% of all persons who make suicide attempts eventually kill themselves.

About half of all persons who make their first suicide attempt die from it.
