shadow onto others.
Carl Jung

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.
Carl Jung

It is often tragic to see how blatantly a man bungles his own life and the lives of others yet
remains totally incapable of seeing how much the whole tragedy originates in himself, and
how he continually feeds it and keeps it going.
Carl Jung

Shame is a soul-eating emotion.
Carl Jung

Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking.

idealism.

possesses a full understanding of it.
Carl Jung

One of the most difficult tasks men can perform, however much others may despise it, is the
invention of good games and it cannot be done by men out of touch with their instinctive
selves.
Carl Jung

Every civilized human being, whatever his conscious development, is still an archaic man at
the deeper levels of his psyche.

shattered.
Carl Jung

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.
Carl Jung

We cannot change anything unless we accept it.
Carl Jung

I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud.
Carl Jung

Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to
communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which
others find inadmissible.
Carl Jung

The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable.
Carl Jung

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
Carl Jung

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.
Carl Jung

Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is,
it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not.
Carl Jung

The bigger the crowd, the more negligible the individual.
Carl Jung

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.
Carl Jung

Wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one's being, but by integration of the
contraries.
Carl Jung

In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.
Carl Jung

I am looking forward enormously to getting back to the sea again, where the overstimulated
psyche can recover in the presence of that infinite peace and spaciousness.
Carl Jung

The pendulum of the mind oscillates between sense and nonsense, not between right and
wrong.
Carl Jung

The healthy man does not torture others – generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.
Carl Jung

No nation keeps its word. A nation is a big, blind worm, following what? Fate perhaps. A
nation has no honour, it has no word to keep.
Carl Jung

There's no coming to consciousness without pain.
Carl Jung
