A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on pretend, understand, world, intellect apprehend, feeling judgment, intellect, half, truth, honest, understanding, and inadequacy

We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgment of the intellect is, at best, only the half of truth, and must, if it be honest, also come to an understanding of its inadequacy.
[Variant translation: We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect. The judgement of the intellect is only part of the truth.]

A Quote by dani on change, understand, open, start, deeper, universal, perspective, wisdom, and curiousity

You can’t understand, change, or improve something if you don’t even see it.

Start with looking.  Open! Open! Open!

Then tilt your head and look again.  Deeper…

Look from every angle.  Don’t let one view satisfy your curiosity.

There is a beautiful wisdom found in seeing from a universal point of view.
