Some Carl Jung Quotations XLIV




We must do what Christ did. We must make mistakes. We must live out our own vision of life. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Page 98


If you avoid error you do not live; in a sense even it may be said that every life is a mistake, for no one
has found the truth. When we live like this we know Christ as a brother, and God indeed becomes man. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Page 98


For then only can we understand Christ as he would want to be understood, as a fellow man; then only does
God become man in ourselves. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Page 98


One comes to see that life is great and beautiful, that nonsense and stupidity do not always
triumph. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Page 145.


Nature can help you only if you manage to get time for yourself. You need to be able to relax in the garden,
completely at peace, or to walk. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Page 166


After all, if you should still get stuck, there is always the enantiodromia from the unconscious, which
opens new avenues when conscious will and vision are failing. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Pages
158-159.


Life behaves as if it were going on, and so I think it is better for an old person to live on, to look
forward to the next day, as if he had to spend centuries, and then he lives properly. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Page 438


I have never asserted, nor do I think I know, what the unconscious is in itself. ~Carl Jung,
Letters Vol. I, Page 196.


The unconscious is on no account an empty sack into which the refuse of consciousness is
collected, as it appears to be in Freud’s view; it is the whole other half of the living psyche. ~Carl Jung,
Letters Vol. I, Page 143.


Your destiny is the result of the collaboration between the conscious and the unconscious. ~Carl Jung,
Letters Vol. I, Page 283.


It happens very often that your memory fails you in an almost diabolical way. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 262


You are not responsible for your constitution but you are stuck with it, and so it is with the
anima, which is likewise a constitutional factor one is stuck with. ~Carl Jung,
Letters Vol. I, Page 193


For what we are stuck with we have a certain responsibility, namely for the way we act
towards it, but not for the fact that it exists. ~Carl Jung,
Letters Vol. I, Page 193


At any rate we can never treat the anima with moral reprimands; instead of this we
have, or there is, wisdom, which in our days seems to have passed into oblivion. ~Carl Jung,
Letters Vol. I, Page 193


Analysis is not only a “diagnosis” but rather an understanding and a moral support in the honest
experimental attempt one calls “life.” ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol I, Page 47.


You know how long it takes to change the whole viewpoint of the patient, yet in nearly all
neuroses it is almost indispensable that the whole outlook on life undergoes a
complete change. ~Carl Jung, Vol. I, Page 295


The transcendent function is not something one does oneself; it comes rather from experiencing
the conflict of opposites. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 269


Eastern yoga is based upon man as he really is. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 97.


If I understand anything of the I Ching, then I should say it is the book that teaches you your own
way and the all-importance of it. Not in vain has the book been the secret treasure of
the sages. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 201



It may be said in passing that Chinese science is based on the principle of synchronicity, or
parallelism in time, which is naturally regarded by us as superstition. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Page 178



With our human knowledge we always move in the human sphere, but in the things of God
we should keep quiet and not make any arrogant assertions about what is greater than ourselves. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 125.


Belief as a religious phenomenon cannot be discussed. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 125.


It seems to me, however, that when belief enters into practical life we are entitled to the opinion
that it should be coupled with the Christian virtue of modesty, which does not brag about
absoluteness but brings itself to admit the unfathomable ways of God which have nothing to do
with the Christian revelation. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 125.


God has never spoken to man except in and through the psyche, and the psyche understands it and
we experience it as something psychic. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 98


God wants to be born in the flame of man’s consciousness, leaping ever higher. And what if this has no roots in the earth?
If it is not a house of stone where the fire of God can dwell, but a wretched straw hut that flares up and vanishes. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 65-66


One must be able to suffer God. That is the supreme task for the carrier of ideas. He must be the advocate of the earth.
God will take care of himself. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 65-66
