darkness

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on self, integration, light, and darkness


Enlightenment doesnt occur from
sitting around visualizing images of light,
but from integrating the darker aspects of the Self
into the conscious personality.

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)

A Quote by The Conscious Filmmaker™ on god, religion, ideology, and darkness

Any ideological or religious construct that has the audacity and hubris to define God and make itself the sole pathway to truth, operates in the delusional cesspool of its own darkness.

"You need hedges.""Hedges," I said, bemused.  "Yes, Edgar." He looked surprised and a little disappointed, as if I had failed to understand a very simple concept.  "Hedges against the night."(in conversation btwn Edgar and his Dr.)

A Quote by dani on star, invisible, shine, darkness, and sparkling

Like a star, I am invisible to most while the light shines brightly.
However, during a cycle of darkness, I shine and am sparkling from great distances.

A Quote by Justice William O. Douglas on nightfall, darkness, oppression, change, and victims

"As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such a twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air—however slight—lest we become unwilling victims of the darkness."

William Douglas

A Quote by Samwise Gamgee on good, great stories, darkness, danger, new day, and holding on

Sam: It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it'll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

Sam: That there's some good in the world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for.
