A Quote by Rollo May

Carl Jung once remarked that the serious problems of life are never solved, and if it seems that they have been solved, something important has been lost.

The paradox of love is that it is the highest degree of awareness of the self as a person and the highest degree of absorption in the other. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin asks, in The Phenomenon of Man, "At what moment do lovers come into the most complete possession of themselves, if not when they are lost in each other?"

These forms of the society are molded and presented first of all by artists. It is the artists who teach us to see, who break the ground in the enlargement of our consciousness; they point the way toward the new dimensions of experience which we have, in any given period, been missing.
