Some higher or wider interest appeared on the patient's horizon, and through this broadening of his outlook the insoluble problem lost its urgency. Carl Jung

All art intuitively apprehends coming changes in the collective unconsciousness. Carl Jung

The great problems of life-sexuality, of course, among others-are always related to the primordial images of the collective unconscious.

This is not to be marveled at, since these images are deposits representing the accumulated experience of thousands of years of struggle for adaptation and existence. Carl Jung

One could say, with a little exaggeration, that the persona is that which in reality one is not, but which oneself as well as others think one is. Carl Jung

You must live life in such a spirit that you make in every moment the best of possibilities. Carl Jung

Carl Jung

Anthropologists have often described what happens to a primitive society when its spiritual values are exposed to the impact of modern civilisation. Its people lose the meaning of their lives, their social organisation disintegrates, and they themselves morally decay. We are now in the same condition. But we have never really understood what we have lost, for our spiritual leaders unfortunately were more interested in protecting their institutions than in understanding the mystery that symbols present. Carl Jung

I simply believe that some part of the human Self or Soul is not subject to the laws of space and time. Carl Jung

From the living fountain of instinct flows everything that is creative; hence the unconscious is not merely conditioned by history, but is the very source of the creative impulse. It is like nature herself - prodigiously conservative, and yet transcending her own historical conditions in her acts of creation. Carl Jung

The sad truth is that man's real life consists of a complex of inexorable opposites - day and night, birth and death, happiness and misery, good and evil.

It always has been and always will be; and if it were not so, existence would come to an end. Carl Jung
