When the wayfarer whistles in the dark, he may be disavowing his timidity, but he does not see any the more clearly for doing so. - Sigmund Freud (The Problem of Anxiety Quotes)

When the wayfarer whistles in the dark, he may be disavowing his timidity, but he does not see any the more clearly for doing so.[Wenn der Wanderer in der Dunkelheit singt, verleugnet er seine √Ąngstlichkeit, aber er sieht darum um nichts heller.]
