“Teaching and writing is like laying your soul bare before the board of the judgment society that determines your fate after you are gone. We welcome research. In reality, those doing research on our research are reaping the benefits of our research.We most often suffer the tears of failure. A technique must live by criticism and when such is well meant and constructive, it is useful. Often in the past it was totally destructive by intent. All mankind resists improvement.”
—DeJarnette, MB. Sacro Occipital Technic Bulletin 1925 to 1985. Apr 1985
Arthur Schopenhauer, a 19th Century German philosopher, noted that “every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second, it is violently opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident.”
