12 Carl Jung Quotes

Carl Gustav Jung was a psychiatrist, an influential thinker and the founder of Analytical Psychology. 
  1. Words are animals, alive with a will of their own.
  2. All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.
  3. The true leader is always led.
  4. Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk.
  5. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
  6. Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism.
  7. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
  8. Great talents are the most lovely and often the most dangerous fruits on the tree of humanity. They hang upon the most slender twigs that are easily snapped off.
  9. If one does not understand a person, one tends to regard him as a fool.
  10. It all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are in themselves.
  11. Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.
  12. Astrology is assured of recognition from psychology, without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.
