Carl Jung's quotes
"Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other."
"Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience a still, small voice says to us, something is out of tune."
"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed."
"The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it."
"The healthy man does not torture others - generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers."
"The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach."
"Science is the tool of the Western mind and with it more doors can be opened than with bare hands. It is part and parcel of our knowledge and obscures our insight only when it holds that the understanding given by it is the only kind there is."
"People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul."
"Nothing worse could happen to one than to be completely understood."
"No nation keeps its word. A nation is a big, blind worm, following what? Fate perhaps. A nation has no honor, it has no word to keep."
"Knowledge rests not upon truth alone, but upon error also."
"In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order."
"If there is anything we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves."
"If one does not understand a person, one tends to regard him as a fool."
"I could not say I believe I know! I have had the experience of being gripped by something that is stronger than myself, something that people call God."
"I cannot love anyone if I hate myself. That is the reason why we feel so extremely uncomfortable in the presence of people who are noted for their special virtuousness, for they radiate an atmosphere of the torture they inflict on themselves. That is not a virtue but a vice."
"Follow that will and that way which experience confirms to be your own."
"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves."
"Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness."
"Death is psychologically as important as birth. Shrinking away from it is something unhealthy and abnormal which robs the second half of life of its purpose."
