Carl Jung Quotes

"There is no coming to consciousness without pain."
     

"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."

"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."

"Great talents are the most lovely and often the most dangerous fruits on the tree of humanity. They hang upon the most slender twigs that are easily snapped off."
     

"I have treated many hundreds of patients. Among those in the second half of life - that is to say, over 35 - there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life."
     

"If one does not understand a person, one tends to regard him as a fool."
     

"If there is anything that 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."
    

"It all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are in themselves."
     

"It is a fact that cannot be denied: the wickedness of others becomes our own wickedness because it kindles something evil in our own hearts."
 

"The pendulum of the mind alternates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong."
     

"The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases."
     
     
"We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses."
     

"We deem those happy who from the experience of life have learnt to bear its ills without being overcome by them."
     

"We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect. The judgement of the intellect is only part of the truth."
     

"When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate."
     

"Where love reigns, there is no will to power; and where the will to power is paramount, love is lacking. The one is but the shadow of the other."

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes."

  • Work must be fun but if you do something you love, believe in and are motivated by the necessary, hard work becomes easier (and doesn't feel like work).
     
  • W. Clement Stone
