Carl Jung

1875 - 1961

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on fulfillment, individuality, laziness, and timidity

It is the individual's task to differentiate himself from all the others and stand on his own feet. All collective identities . . . interfere with the fulfillment of this task. Such collective identities are crutches for the lame, shields for the timid, beds for the lazy, nurseries for the irresponsible. . . .

All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on age, earth, force, god, mercy, nature, power, soul, and world

Instead of being at the mercy of wild beasts, earthquakes, landslides, and inundations, modern man is battered by the elemental forces of his own psyche. This is the World Power that vastly exceeds all other powers on earth. The Age of Enlightenment, which stripped nature and human institutions of gods, overlooked the God of Terror who dwells in the human soul.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on appreciation, children, feeling, gratitude, plants, soul, and teachers

One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. Curriculum is necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.

If there is anything we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is something that could better be changed in ourselves.
