Carl Jung – Make you smile or at least think. You may or may not agree with them but I hope you enjoy them.
Just a few choice words from that great psychologist Carl Gustav Jung (1875 – 1961).
My favorite quote of Jung’s is about the balance of life.
The word “happiness” would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
When an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside as fate.
A particularly beautiful woman is a source of terror. As a rule, a beautiful woman is a terrible disappointment.
The healthy man does not torture others, generally it is the tortured that turn into torturers.
Everything that irritates us about others can lead to a better understanding of ourselves.
The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.
We cannot live in the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning. For what was great in the morning will be little by the evening, and what in the morning was true, will by the evening have become a lie.
Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you.
If one does not understand a person, one tends to regard him as a fool.
The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.
This one is about denial and not laying the blame for something with ourselves.
I guess he didn’t have much luck with the ladies.
This one is about the treatment of others.
This is a thought about treatment again, this time it is the treatment of ourselves.
Jung also had an appreciation of the important things.
If you were wondering how to grow old gracefully, then this will be useful.
I think it is best not to analyse where he was going with this one, particularly if you think you are sane.
I must try to remember this one.
Finally, one which we should probably all remember.
