Friday’s Quotes – C.S. Lewis

 

Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.

 

We are not living in a world where all roads are radii of a circle and where all, if followed long enough, will, therefore, draw gradually nearer and finally meet at the centre: rather in a world where every road, after a few miles, forks into two, and each of those into two again, and at each fork, you must make a decision.

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.
