Fast, N. (2010).  The Blame Game.
"Our findings showed that blame was contagious, but not among those who felt psychologically secure. So try to foster a chronic sense of inner security in order to reduce the chances that you'll lash out at others."
Horney, K. (1950).  Neurosis and human growth: the struggle toward self-realization.
"If the word 'depersonalization' did not already have a specific psychiatric meaning, it would be a good term for what alienation from the self essentially is: it is a depersonalizing, and therefore a devitalizing process." (p. 161)
Deming, E. W. (1982).  Quality Productivity and Competitive Position.
"The economic loss from fear is appalling. It is necessary, for better quality and productivity, that people feel secure." (p. 33)
Kaufman, G. (1985).  Shame: The Power of Caring.
"Defenses against shame are adaptive. They have been the client's only ways of surviving intolerable shame. Strategies of defense aim at protecting the self against further exposure and further experiences of shame. Several of the most prominent strategies are rage, contempt for others, the striving for perfection, the striving for power, and internal withdrawal. Both perfectionism and excessive power-seeking are strivings against shame and attempt to compensate for the sense of defectiveness which underlies internalized shame. None of these are unitary strategies; rather, they become expressed in unique and varied ways, with several often functioning together." (p. 128)
Goleman, D. (2006).  Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships.
"Feeling secure, Kohlrieser argues, lets a person focus better on the work at hand, achieve goals, and see obstacles as challenges, not threats. Those who are anxious, in contrast, readily become preoccupied with the specter of failure, fearing that doing poorly will mean they will be rejected or abandoned (in this context, fired)—and so they play it safe." (p. 277)
Epstein, M., & Lama D. (2003).  Thoughts without a Thinker : Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective.
"The purpose of life is to be happy....
On its own no amount of technological development can lead to lasting happiness. What is almost always missing is a corresponding inner development." (p. ix, forward by the Dalai Lama)
Wyatt, J., & Hare C. (1997).  Work Abuse: How to Recognize and Survive It.
"There are five distinctions that will assist you to see the depth with which work abuse affects people...
1. The Abuse Itself...
2. The Inability to Protest the Abuse...
3. Being Blamed and Feeling Guilty for Reacting against Work Abuse...
4. Having to Deny the Ways that Abuse Affects You...
5. Feeling Guilty for Visible Symptoms that Develop..."
