Carl Jung

“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
― C.G. Jung

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
― C.G. Jung

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
― C.G. Jung

“You are what you do, not what you say you'll do.”
― C.G. Jung

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.”
― C.G. 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.”
― C.G. Jung

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

“The pendulum of the mind oscillates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.”

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”

“Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you.”
― C.G. Jung

“There's no coming to consciousness without pain.”
― C.G. Jung

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
― C.G. Jung

“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.”
― C.G. 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. ”
― C.G. Jung

“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.”
― C.G. Jung

“Whatever is rejected from the self, appears in the world as an event.”
― C.G. Jung

“Where wisdom reigns, there is no conflict between thinking and feeling.”
― C.G. Jung

“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.”
― C.G. Jung

“We cannot change anything unless we accept it.”
― C.G. Jung, Modern Man in Search of a Soul

“The greatest tragedy of the family is the unlived lives of the parents.”
― C.G. Jung

“The acceptance of oneself is the essence of the whole moral problem and the epitome of a whole outlook on life. That I feed the hungry, that I forgive an insult, that I love my enemy in the name of Christ -- all these are undoubtedly great virtues. What I do unto the least of my brethren, that I do unto Christ. But what if I should discover that the least among them all, the poorest of all the beggars, the most impudent of all the offenders, the very enemy himself -- that these are within me, and that I myself stand in need of the alms of my own kindness -- that I myself am the enemy who must be loved -- what then? As a rule, the Christian's attitude is then reversed; there is no longer any question of love or long-suffering; we say to the brother within us "Raca," and condemn and rage against ourselves. We hide it from the world; we refuse to admit ever having met this least among the lowly in ourselves.”
― C.G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections

“Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.”
― C.G. 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. ”
― C.G. Jung

“The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.”
― C.G. Jung

“There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. 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.”
― C.G. Jung
