NEUROSIS-“PEANUTS”

Peanuts and his friends suffer from the same emotional problems as most people and try their best to solve them in ways familiar to all of us…Charles Schulz captures in his cartoons the symptoms of the disturbed personality of our time…with all the left brain’s “shoulds”,role playing,ego needs,and self image, life becomes a heavy trip without clear answers to our problems.

lucy_1024x768Sometimes when I get up in the morning, I feel very peculiar. I feel like I’ve just got to bite a cat! I feel like if I don’t bite a cat before sundown, I’ll go crazy! But then I just take a deep breath and forget about it. That’s what is known as real maturity.~ Snoopy

This is my depressed stance. When you’re depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand.

If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve got to stand like this.~ Charlie Brown

Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves and then we have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.~ Snoopy

    This was a lot of fun! It’s been a long time since I enjoyed the Peanuts characters. Charles Schultz sure did a great job of helping us enjoy ourselves as human beings!
