Carl Jung: A man's lifework is like a ship he has built and equipped himself,




To B. von Fischer 11 July 160

Please accept my most cordial thanks for your kind birthday letter, which it was both an honour and a pleasure to receive.

I am particularly sensible of the appreciative words you have written on my life's work, for they are a melody which one does not often hear in our dear Fatherland.

A man's lifework is like a ship he has built and equipped himself, launched down the ramp and entrusted to the sea, steered towards a distant goal and then left like a passenger, in order to sit on the shore and gaze after it till it is out of sight.

Like all three-dimensional things it gradually sinks below the horizon.

What remains is what has been.

I am, Sir,

respectfully and gratefully yours,

C.G. Jung ~Letters Vol. II, Page 577
