Some Great Carl Jung Quotes

Carl Jung is probably the best thing that ever happened to the west. He was able to integrate a lot of eastern philosophy and wisdom into modern psychology, much to the chagrin of Freud.

Below are some great quotes worth remembering:

“When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate.”
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
“We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.” 
“There is no coming to consciousness without pain.” 
“The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.” 
“Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you.”
“Our heart glows, and secret unrest gnaws at the root of our being. Dealing with the unconscious has become a question of life for us.” 
“Man’s task is to become conscious of the contents that press upward from the unconscious.” 
“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” 
“Follow that will and that way which experience confirms to be your own.” 
“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.” 
“A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.”
