A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on self, soul, and wisdom


We can never fully know.

One of the most difficult tasks people can perform, however much others may despise it, is the invention of good games.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung

It is a condition of the modern psyche that the ego assumes itself to be the centre of the psyche–unconsciously inflating itself and understanding itself to the creator of its own being.  This is achieved by removed our experience from its dynamic archetypal, instinctual and emotional basis.  As Jung writes:

"The archetype is increasingly detached from its dynamic background and gradually truned into a purely intellectual formula.  In this way it is neutralized, and you can then say 'one can live with it quite well.'" Letters vol. 2, 259

[speaking of a common condition in which the modern inflated ego usups the center of psyche (imagines itself to be the 'creator of its own being' (Edinger, p. 23) and denies the dynamic reality of experience]

I dont give a damn for a career if it has to be based on the premise of restricting the research and concealing the truth.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on parents, children, ancestors, karma, and fate

I feel very strongly that I am under the influence of things or questions which were left incomplete and unanswered by my parents and grandparents and more distant ancestors. It often seems as if there were an impersonal karma within a family which is passed on from parents to children. It has always seemed to me that I had to answer questions which fate had posed to my forefathers, and which had not yet been answered, or as if I had to complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages had left unfinished.
