• The best you can do for someone else is be yourself.


  • The expectation or exclusive conviction that there must be a rational way of settling every conflict can be insurmountable to finding a solution.

    Carl Jung

  • A leader is most effective when people barely know he exists. When his work is done, his aim fulfilled, his [people] will feel they did it themselves.


  • Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves.

    James Allen

  • The test of a first rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.

    F. Scott Fitzgerald

  • When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

    John Lennon

    Carl Jung

  • I can imagine in many instances where I would become sinister to you. For instance, if life had led you to take up an artificial attitude, then you wouldn’t be able to stand me, because I am a natural being.

    C. G. Jung

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

  • The unconscious of people who live in an artificial manner senses me as a danger. Everything about me irritates them, my way of speaking, my way of laughing … They sense nature.

    Carl Jung

  • To develop one’s own personality is indeed an unpopular undertaking, a deviation that is highly uncongenial to the herd… Small wonder, then, that from earliest times only the chosen few have embarked upon this strange adventure.

    Carl Jung

  • For better to come, good must stand aside.

    Carl Jung
