Today's Quotes - Carl Gustav Jung

posted May 21, 2009, 8:34 AM by Amazing Anastasia
Carl Gustav Jung was born at Kesswil, Switzerland on 26 July
1875.  Jung was an only child for the first ten years of his life, and lived
largely in a world of the imagination. After getting his
medical degrees, he continued this inner focus. He
corresponded with Sigmund Freud with relish, but came to
reject Freud's emphasis on sex as the root of his patients's
problems.

Today's Quotes:

within me, that I myself am the enemy that must be loved - what then?

The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no
recipe for living that fits all cases.

A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions
has never overcome them.

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the
narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism.

Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health.

The pendulum of the mind alternates between sense and
nonsense, not between right and wrong.

Beautiful bodies and beautiful personalities rarely go together.
     - All from Carl Gustav Jung, 1875 - 1961
