Some Carl Jung Quotations LIII




I have plumb forgotten my Greek as I have to read mainly Latin texts, Greek ones being something
of a rarity in alchemy. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 305-306


Kant's categorical imperative is of course a philosophical touching up of a psychic fact which, as
you have quite correctly seen, is unquestionably a manifestation of the anima. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 305-306


A complete elucidation of this phenomenon in Kant would be possible only if we had sufficiently
authentic material on his relation to his mother. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 305-306



My anima constantly repeats the saying: “The power of truth is great and will prevail”. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 305-306


Particularly here in Switzerland we have the feeling that we can only live vertically. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 303


When we go on holiday my wife and I push a two-wheeled cart ahead of us with the luggage,
which is not so sad but uncommonly amusing. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 303


Meanwhile I would like an older edition of the Vulgate and Septuagint and should be grateful
if you could get these texts for me. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 324


Depending on the peculiar nature of the case the most primitive therapeutic
methods can achieve even better results than the most refined. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 324


Nor is it the task of theory to paint a picture of life, but rather to create a workmanlike language
which is satisfied with conventional signs. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 324


Your dream unquestionably refers to the archetypal problem of the extrusion of the soul from the body. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


One is forced to conclude 'that in your case the soul is only loosely seated in your body. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


However, the friendly lion in the dream seems to indicate that the looseness of the soul is
not exactly desirable, since the lion compensates your condition in a very obvious way: the Zurich lion
represents your localized instinct, firmly rooted in your earth, just as the lion's soul-as with all animals
-is securely fixed in its body. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


Moreover you seem prone to eczema, which not infrequently indicates that one is not properly
inside one's body. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


If you devote yourself, intentionally and intellectually, to dangerous problems such as the squaring of the
circle, this is yet another indication of a tendency to get away from the body, because this problem
symbolizes an irrational state of wholeness which cannot be contrived but can only be experienced. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


It is as though you were defecating yourself out of the anus, and this is a topsy-turvy
procedure since you really ought to be producing yourself. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


Somewhere there is a place where you are not making yourself felt, not creating yourself. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


You are squeezing yourself out behind, so to speak, acting not in accordance with your instinct
but in accordance with reflections or inclinations which are the very reverse of instinctively correct actions.
You jump out of your skin, but backwards. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


The valley of darkness has to be gone through in reality and not in fantasy, otherwise one could spare
oneself an infinite number of unpleasantnesses which are nevertheless important for life. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


I think, therefore, that if you keep as closely as possible to concrete reality and try to create yourself
there and illuminate the darkness, you will be on a more normal road than when you engross yourself
in squaring the circle as a substitute. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 306-307


Best thanks for your New Year letter, with its welcome news that the pebbles ejected by the
volcano on whose edge I am sitting have landed somewhere. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 309-310


Best thanks for your New Year letter, with its welcome news that the pebbles ejected by the
volcano on whose edge I am sitting have landed somewhere. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 309-310


I would give the earth to know whether Goethe himself knew why he called the two
old people "Philemon" and "Baucis." ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 309-310


I often mention your [J.B. Rhine] work to people over here and I think it is of the greatest importance for the
understanding of certain peculiar phenomena of the unconscious. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 321-322


In our practical work we come across peculiar telepathic influences which throw a most significant light
on the relativity of space and time in our unconscious psyche. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 321-322


Hitler himself (from what I heard) is more than half crazy. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 277-278


Yes, he cannot see our world, which means we are the eyes of that man who lives forever, because
Our consciousness is an eye that sees ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 1016.
