Some Insightful Quotes by Carl Jung

Carl Gustav Jung (/jʊŋ/; German: [ˈkarl ˈɡʊstaf jʊŋ]; 26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961), often referred to as C. G. Jung, was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology. His work has been influential not only in psychiatry but also in philosophy, anthropology, archaeology, literature, and religious studies. He was a prolific writer, though many of his works were not published until after his death.
The central concept of analytical psychology is individuation—the psychological process of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious, while still maintaining their relative autonomy. Jung considered individuation to be the central process of human development.
Jung created some of the best known psychological concepts, including the archetype, the collective unconscious, the complex, and extraversion and introversion.

Some insightful quotes of Jung:

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

4. “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
5. “You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.”
6. “Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.”
7. “Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.”
8. “The pendulum of the mind oscillates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.”
9. “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
10. “As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know.”

18. “In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.”
19. “Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not. ”
20. “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.”
21. “Whatever is rejected from the self, appears in the world as an event.”
