"Over the years, as schools of ideas and therapy passed by like schools of fish, one always questioned whether the new school was a contribution, a fashion, or a desperate, inappropriate attempt to save past theories. If I was in doubt about an endeavor, I could ask John Weakland. His judgement was sound on what was worthwile." -- Jay Haley
