Carl Jung QUOTES

We meet ourselves time and again in a thousand disguises on the path of life.
Thinking is difficult, that's why most people judge.
The reason for evil in the world is that people are not able to tell their stories.
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud.
Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.
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.
A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them. As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.
Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism.
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.
Life really does begin at forty. Up until then, you are just doing research.
In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.
Man's task is to become conscious of the contents that press upward from the unconscious.
Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk.
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
There is no birth of consciousness without pain.
