C.G. Jung motivational Quotations:

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

  •  “One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.”

  • “The word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.”

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

    C.G. Jung


  • “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.”

  •  “We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.”

  •  “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate.”

  •  “Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.”

  •  “There is no coming to consciousness without pain.”

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

  •  “There is no coming to consciousness without pain.”

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

  •  “We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.”

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

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

  •  “Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health.”

  •  “Man is not a machine that can be remodelled for quite other purposes as occasion demands, in the hope that it will go on functioning as regularly as before but in a quite different way. He carries his whole history with him; in his very structure is written the history of mankind.”

  •  “Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience a still, small voice says to us, something is out of tune.”

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

  •  “Neurosis is always a substitute for legitimate suffering.”

  •  “The collective unconscious consists of the sum of the instincts and their correlates, the archetypes. Just as everybody possesses instincts, so he also possesses a stock of archetypal images.”

  •  “For a young person, it is almost a sin, or at least a danger, to be too preoccupied with himself; but for the ageing person, it is a duty and a necessity to devote serious attention to himself.”

  •  “Knowledge rests not upon truth alone, but upon error also.”

  •  “Dreams are the guiding words of the soul. Why should I henceforth not love my dreams and not make their riddling images into objects of my daily consideration?”

  •  “Just as we might take Darwin as an example of the normal extraverted thinking type, the normal introverted thinking type could be represented by Kant. The one speaks with facts, the other relies on the subjective factor. Darwin ranges over the wide field of objective reality, Kant restricts himself to a critique of Knowledge.”

  •  “The Christ-symbol is of the greatest importance for psychology in so far as it is perhaps the most highly developed and differentiated symbol of the self, apart from the figure of the Buddha.”

  •  “Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain.”

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

  •  “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.”

  •  “Great talents are the most lovely and often the most dangerous fruits on the tree of humanity. They hang upon the most slender twigs that are easily snapped off.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “If there is anything that we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.”

    C.G. Jung


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

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

  •  “A 'scream' is always just that - a noise and not music.”

  •  “In my case Pilgrim's Progress consisted in my having to climb down a thousand ladders until I could reach out my hand to the little clod of earth that I am.”

  •  “We are in a far better position to observe instincts in animals or in primitives than in ourselves. This is due to the fact that we have grown accustomed to scrutinizing our own actions and to seeking rational explanations for them.”
