Some Carl Jung Quotations XXIV




Religion means dependence on and submission to the irrational facts of experience. ~Carl Jung, CW 10, Para 505.


You are again forgetting that life stands on two legs, doing and thinking. ~Carl Jung, Han Guisan Schmid, Pages 131-142


This union, which should not come about, is the union of the pairs of opposites in ourselves. This is what the devil wants to prevent at any cost. ~Carl Jung, Han Guisan Schmid, Pages 131-142


We tend to identify our chthonic nature with evil and our spiritual nature with good. We must accept the dark forces and stop projecting them. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


Go to bed. Think of your problem. See what you dream. Perhaps the Great Man, the 2,000,000-year-old man, will speak. In a cul-de-sac, then only do you hear his voice. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


The urge to become what one is is invincibly strong, and you can always count on it, but that does not mean that things will necessarily turn out positively. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


As if we know nature! Or about the psyche! The 2,000,000-year-old man may know something. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


I have no trouble talking to primitives. When I talk of the Great Man, or the equivalent, they understand. The Great Man is something that reacts. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


We go through difficult things; that is fate. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


Man goes through analysis so that he can die. I have analyzed to the end with the end in sight—to accompany the individual in order that he may die. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


The analyst must help life as long as he can. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


One must see what the underlying trend is—what the will of God is. You are damned if you don't follow it. It will ruin your life, your health. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


It, the Great Man, can at one stroke put an entirely different face on the thing—or anything can happen. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


Ethics is not convention; ethics is between myself and the Great Man. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


The way is ineffable. One cannot, one must not, betray it. It is like the way of Zen—like a sharp knife, and also twisting like a serpent. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


To clarify your mind you draw a mandala, and it is legitimate. Another says, "Oh, that's how to do it!" and draws a mandala. And that is a mistake; that is cheating, because he is copying. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


Never say no or yes on principle. Say it only when you feel it is really yes. If it is really no, it is no. If you say yes for any outer reason, you are sunk. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


If you are dishonest, you are nothing for your unconscious. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


If you follow the unconscious closely, your intelligence will not sink below a certain level, and you will add a good deal of intelligence to what you already possess. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


If you take the unconscious intellectually, you are lost. It is not a conviction, not an assumption. It is a Presence. It is a fact. It is there. It happens. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


You have got to accept what the unconscious produces, and you have to understand its language. It is Nature, and it has to be translated into human forms. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


That is the reason for the dignity of man, that he has the ability to do this. There is no reflection in creation. To reflect is man's task, and he can do it when he is not sterilized. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364


The naivete of the white man—that he identifies the ego with the Great Man! ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, Pages 359-364
