Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk.


The important thing is what he [a man] talks about, not whether he agrees with it or not.


The wine of youth does not always clear with advancing years; sometimes it grows turbid.


If one does not understand a person, one tends to regard him as a fool.  


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


There are many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. 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.


I cannot love anyone if I hate myself. That is the reason why we feel so extremely uncomfortable in the presence of people who are noted for their special virtuousness, for they radiate an atmosphere of the torture they inflict on themselves. That is not a virtue but a vice.


Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health.


Shrinking away from death is something unhealthy and abnormal which robs the second half of life of its purpose.


The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed. It is just these intense conflicts and their conflagration which are needed to produce valuable and lasting results.

There is no coming to consciousness without pain.


From the middle of life onward, only he remains vitally alive who is ready to die with life.


The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.


A collection of a hundred great brains makes one big fathead.


Here we must ask: Have I any religious experience and immediate relation to God, and hence that certainty which will keep me, as an individual, from dissolving in the crowd?


Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.


Wholly unprepared, we embark upon the second half of life. Or are there perhaps colleges for forty-year-olds which prepare them for their coming life and its demands as the ordinary colleges introduce our young people to a knowledge of the world? No, thoroughly unprepared we take the step into the afternoon of life; worse still, we take this step with the false assumption that our truths and ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the programme of life's morning; for what was great in the morning will be little at evening, and what in the morning was true will at evening have become a lie.

What is essential in a work of art is that it should rise far above the realm of personal life and speak to the spirit and heart of the poet as man to the spirit and heart of mankind.


It is, moreover, only in the state of complete abandonment and loneliness that we experience the helpful powers of our own natures.


In some way or other we are part of a single, all-embracing psyche, a single "greatest man".


What is stirred in us is that faraway background, those immemorial patterns of the human mind, which we have not acquired but have inherited from the dim ages of the past.


Every man carries within him the eternal image of woman. . . . This image is fundamentally unconscious, an hereditary factor of primordial origin . . . an imprint or 'archetype' of all the ancestral experiences of the female, a deposit, as it were, of all the impressions ever made by woman. . . .  

每个男人内在地拥有永恒的女人表象。...... 这一表象在根本上存在于潜意识中,它是具有原始起源的遗传因素 ...... 是所有祖先的女性体验的印记或“原型”,是女人所造成的所有印象的积淀。   

Life has always seemed to me like a plant that lives on its rhizome. Its true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome. The part that appears above ground lasts only a single summer.?.?.?. What we see is the blossom, which passes. The rhizome remains.


At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the plashing of the waves, in the clouds and the animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons.


Knowledge does not enrich us; it removes us more and more from the mythic world in which we were once at home by right of birth.

A belief proves to me only the phenomenon of belief, not the content of the belief.


The greatest and most important problems in life are all in a certain sense insoluble. They can never be solved, but only outgrown.


Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.


The images of the unconscious place a great responsibility upon a man. Failure to understand them, or a shirking of ethical responsibility, deprives him of his wholeness and imposes a painful fragmentariness on his life.


The unconscious is the unwritten history of mankind from time unrecorded.


Man's task is to become conscious of the contents that press upward from the unconscious.


The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego-consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.


Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.


Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble.

Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.


The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.


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


We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.


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


The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.


Observance of customs and laws can very easily be a cloak for a lie so subtle that our fellow human beings are unable to detect it. It may help us to escape all criticism, we may even be able to deceive ourselves in the belief of our obvious righteousness. But deep down, below the surface of the average man's conscience, he hears a voice whispering, "There is something not right," no matter how much his rightness is supported by public opinion or by the moral code.


The teacher pretended that algebra was a perfectly natural affair, to be taken for granted, whereas I didn't even know what numbers were. Mathematics classes became sheer terror and torture to me. I was so intimidated by my incomprehension that I did not dare to ask any questions.

It all depends on how we look at things, and not on how they are themselves.


All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.


Sometimes, indeed, there is such a discrepancy between the genius and his human qualities that one has to ask oneself whether a little less talent might not have been better.


There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion.


Creative powers can just as easily turn out to be destructive. It rests solely with the moral personality whether they apply themselves to good things or to bad. And if this is lacking, no teacher can supply it or take its place.


The word "happiness" would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.


The wine of youth does not always clear with advancing years; sometimes it grows turbid.

A collection of a hundred great brains makes one big fathead.


Without freedom there can be no morality.


Meaning has an inherent curative power. Meaning affects everything.


The individual cannot give his life point and meaning unless he puts his ego at the service of spiritual authority superordinate to man.


I could not say I believe. I know! I have had the experience of being gripped by something stronger than myself, something that people call God.


The world hangs on a thin thread, and that thread is the psyche of man.


No matter what the world thinks about religious experience, the one who has it possesses a great treasure, a thing that has become for him a source of life, meaning, and beauty, and that has given a new splendor to the world and to mankind.... Where is the criterion by which you could say that such a life is not legitimate, that such an experience is not valid?


What is it in the end, that induces a person to go his own way and to rise out of unconscious identity with the mass as out of a swathing mist? Not necessity, for necessity comes to many, and they all take refuge in convention. Not moral decision, for nine times out of ten we decide for convention likewise. What is it, then that inexorably tips the scales in favor of the extraordinary? It is what is commonly called vocation: an irrational factor that destines a person to emancipate himself from the herd and from its well-worn paths. True personality is always a vocation and puts its trust in it as in God . . . But vocation acts like a law of God from which there is no escape. . . . He must obey his own law, as if it were a daemon whispering to him of new and wonderful paths. Anyone with a vocation hears the voice of the inner person: he is called."


The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purposes through him. As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is "man" in a higher sense - he is "collective man," a vehicle and moulder of the unconscious psychic life of mankind."

The idea of God is an absolutely necessary psychological function of an irrational nature, which has nothing whatever to do with the question of God's existence. The human intellect can never answer this question, still less give proof of God. Moreover, such proof is superfluous, for the idea of an all-powerful divine Being is present everywhere, unconsciously if not consciously, because it is an archetype.


People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls.


Every life is the realisation of a whole, that is, of a self, for which reason this realisation can also be called `individuation'. All life is bound to individual carriers who realise it, and it is simply inconceivable without them. But every carrier is charged with an individual destiny and destination, and their realisation of these alone makes sense of life. True, the `sense' is often something that could just as well be called `nonsense', for there is a certain incommensurability between the mystery of existence and human understanding. Sense and nonsense are merely man-made labels which serve to give us a reasonably valid sense of direction.


"Anybody whose calling is to guide souls should have his own soul guided first, so that he knows what it means to deal with the human soul. Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people. It would help not help you very much to study books only, though it is indispensible too. But it would help you most to have a personal insight into the secrets of the human soul. Otherwise everything remains a clever intellectual trick, consisting of empty words and leading to empty talk."


"Were it not a fact of experience that supreme values reside in the soul, psychology would not interest me in the least, for the soul would then be nothing but a miserable vapor. I know, however, from hundredfold experience that it is nothing of the sort, but on the contrary contains the equivalents of everything that has been formulated in dogma and a good deal more, which is just what enables it to be an eye destined to behold the light. This requires limitless range and unfathomable depth of vision. I have been accused of deifying the soul. Not I but God Himself deified it."

最高价值蕴涵于灵魂 — 如果这不是经验事实,则我不会对心理学有任何兴趣,因为如此则灵魂不过是一团凄惨的迷雾。然而上百次的经验告诉我事实与此相反:灵魂包含着比教义更丰富的内容,这使得灵魂成为领悟光明的眼睛。这要求有无限深广的视野。我被控告神化灵魂。但神化灵魂的是上帝本人。。(董建中译ttzoo@163.com)  

. . . poets . . . create from the very depths of the collective unconscious, voicing aloud what others only dream.


Within each one of us there is another whom we do not know. He speaks to us in dreams and tells us how differently he sees us from how we see ourselves. When, therefore, we find ourselves in a difficult situation, to which there is no solution, he can sometimes kindle a light that radically alters our attitude, the very attitude that led us into the difficult situation.  我们每个人的内在中都有一个不为我们所知的存在。在梦中他向我们倾诉,告诉我们他对我们的看法是多么地不同于我们对自己的看法。而当我们发现自己身陷困境、绝望无助时,他有时会燃起一点光亮,从而改变我们的心态,而正是这种心态把我们引入了困境。

Conscious and unconscious do not make a whole when one of them is suppressed and injured by the other. If they must contend, let it at least be a fair fight with equal rights on both sides.... This means open conflict and open collaboration at once. That, evidently, is what human life should be. It is the old game of hammer and anvil: between them the patient iron is forged into an indestructible whole, an "individual." This, roughly, is what I mean by the individuation process.


The unexpected and the incredible belong in this world. Only then is life whole. For me the world has from the beginning been infinite and ungraspable.


The unconscious is a piece of Nature our mind cannot comprehend.


... the more one turns to the light, the greater is the shadow behind one's back.


We are evil, man is necessarily evil, because he is so good. Only domesticated animals misbehave; a wild animal never misbehaves.... Therefore for us to kill the [wild animal within us] would be blasphemous, a sin, it would mean killing the natural thing in us, the thing that naturally serves God.


The thing you have buried grows fat while you grow thin. If you get rid of qualities you don't like by denying them, you become more and more unaware of what you are, you declare yourself more and more non-existent, and your devils will grow fatter and fatter.


 You cannot jump out of your sin and cast all your burdens aside. To think like that is wrong.... It is a mistake to deny the shadow. If you do, a reaction from the collective unconscious will loom up from the dark ...; the more pious [a person] is the more evil are the things that befall him.


A more or less superficial layer of the unconscious is undoubtedly personal. I call it the personal unconscious. But this personal unconscious rests upon a deeper layer, which does not derive from personal experience and is not a personal acquisition but is inborn. The deeper layer I call the collective unconscious. I have chosen the term "collective" because this part of the unconscious is not individual but universal; in contrast to the personal psyche, it has contents and modes of behavior that are more or less the same everywhere and in all individuals.


The darkness which clings to every personality is the door into the unconscious and the gateway of dreams, from which those two twilight figures, the shadow and the anima, step into our nightly visions or, remaining invisible, take possession of our ego-consciousness.

The inner voice is at once our greatest danger and an indispensable help.


If there is anything that we wish to change in our children, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.


"Physical" is not the only criterion of truth: there are also psychic truths which can neither be explained nor proved nor contested in any physical way.


  It is quite possible that we look at the world from the wrong side and that we might find the right answer by changing our point of view and looking at it from the other side, i.e., not from outside, but from inside.


We have forgotten the age-old fact that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.


  Any large company composed of wholly admirable persons has the morality and intelligence of an unwieldy, stupid, and violent animal. The bigger the organization, the more unavoidable is its immorality and blind stupidity... Society, by automatically stressing all the collective qualities in its individual representatives, puts a premium on mediocrity, on everything that settles down to vegetate in an easy, irresponsible way. Individuality will inevitably be driven to the wall. This process begins in school, continues at the university, and rules all departments in which the State has a hand.


"In a small social body, the individuality of its members is better safeguarded, and the greater is their relative freedom and the possibility of conscious responsibility. Without freedom there can be no morality. Our admiration for great organizations dwindles when once we become aware of the other side of the wonder -- the tremendous piling up and accentuation of all that is primitive in man, and the unavoidable destruction of his individuality in the interests of the monstrosity that every great organization in fact is..."


...we are absolutely incapable of saying how the world is constituted in itself - and always shall be, since we are obliged to convert physical events into psychic processes as soon as we want to say anything about knowledge. But who can guarantee that this conversion produces anything like an adequate "objective" picture of the world? That could only be if the physical event were also a psychic one. But a great distance still seems to separate us from such an assertion. Till then, we must for better or worse content ourselves with the assumption that the psyche supplies those images and forms which alone make knowledge of objects possible.

我们绝对没有能力判定世界自身的构成 — 永远如此,因为每当我们想做出有关认知的任何判定,我们就被迫把物理事件转换为心灵过程。但谁能保证该转换带来足够“客观”的世界之意象?只有当物理事件也同时是心理事件时,才会如此。但似乎我们离这一要求仍很遥远。在那时之前,我们必须满足于这一假定:心灵所提供的表象和形式,独自使得对客体的认知成为可能。

I understood that within the soul from its primordial beginnings there has been a desire for light and an irrepressible urge to rise out of the primal darkness. The longing for light is the longing for consciousness.
