Friday’s Quotes | C.G. Jung

-By C.G. Jung

Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.

There is no coming to consciousness without pain.

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.

 

Carl Gustav Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and founder of the school of analytical psychology. He proposed and developed the concepts of the extroverted and introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious. The issues that he dealt with arose from his personal experiences. For many years Jung felt as if he had two separate personalities. One introverted and other extroverted. This interplay resulted in his study of integration and wholeness. His work has been influential not only in psychology but in religion and literature as well.
