Some Carl Jung Quotations XXII




Surely Sisyphus was an idealist, wasn’t he? your Jung ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid-Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


Women are much tougher than men underneath. To call women the weaker sex is sheer nonsense. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Pages 244-251


When a man is in the wilderness, it is the darkness that brings the dreams ~Carl Jung, CW 18, Para 674


The abstract thinking of the introvert is a parallel to this. It is so much in accordance with outer reality that unconsciously it is completely saturated with, and contingent upon, the lusting for power in the world. ~Carl Jung, Jung-Schmid, Pages 74-86


…the line of the ecliptic, at present traversing the second fish of the sign of Pisces, the fish of the Anti-Christ, does not pass through its head but below. This would mean that, according to the stars, the sinister forces do not reach their maximum, do not quite "come to a head." ~ Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters and Pages 171-179


I always hold that psychology is such a complicated chapter of human knowledge that those who deal with it should really have some philosophical preparation. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 99-113


You know that the terminology in the field of medical psychology is still in the state of the old Babylonian confusion of tongues. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 99-113


When I violate the extravert with my abstract thinking, this is a fact, and this fact cannot be dismissed even if I insist that the other is merely thinking concretistically. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


For in order to achieve abstraction, we pour what is separate and manifold into a flask, heat it up, and melt it, and thus force the volatility of the matter into the template. In that way we create a spiritus, which is an abstraction. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


The dignity of man— an essential notion still to be learned by all missionaries! ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


I have always defended this principle, namely, that one should not proselytize the other but should give him the opportunity to grow from what is his very own. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


What the extravert calls human is just “all too human” for the introvert.
What the introvert calls human is airy and gaseous for the other. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114



An honest man, who also has a certain amount of courage, will never use self-knowledge as a surrogate for life. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


Knowledge without usefulness adorns philosophical chessboards and produces fat volumes for venerable libraries. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


Usefulness without meaning fills pockets and the churches of Christian Science. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


Thinking is life just as much as doing is. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


Thinking is not merely a “realization” of life; life can also be a “realization” of thinking. ~Carl Jung, Hans Schmid Guisan Letters, Pages 100-114


You see, I am not a philosopher. I am not a sociologist—I am a medical man. I deal with facts. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218


I am not particularly well read in philosophy. I simply have had to make use of philosophical concepts to formulate my findings. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218


My conceptions are much more like Carus than like Freud. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218


The great question was, is there a non-ego, is there something that can pull me out of the isolation-in-the-ego of the Kantian world picture. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218


We were living at a time when there had been no wars within men's memory, but here was a man [Nietzche] who saw war coming, who wrote that the next century would be the most warlike of all. I felt that he was right. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218


In his thirty-seventh year, Zarathustra happened to Nietzsche . . . 'cla ward die eins zu zwei, Zarathustra ging an mir vorbei.' In 1888 he went mad. That was a tremendous event; it made a deep impression on me. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218


I was especially interested in palaeontology; you see, my life work in historical comparative psychology is like palaeontology. That is the study of the archetypes of the animals, and this is the study of the archetypes in the soul. The Eohippus is the archetype of the modern horse, the archetypes are like the fossil animals. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218


It [Individuation] is not a therapy. Is it therapy when a cat becomes a cat? It is a natural process. Individuation is a natural process. It is what makes a tree turn into a tree; if it is interfered with, then it becomes sick and cannot function as a tree, but left to itself it develops into a tree. That is individuation. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218


You know, it is possible to have 'consciousness' in globo, so to speak, without its being differentiated. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking; Interviews and Encounters, Pages 205-218
