Wisdom by Carl Jung

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

We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.

Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.

There is no coming to consciousness without pain.

Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.

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.

The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.

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

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism. (Ouch!)

A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
