Carl Jung

Carl Jung

Carl Jung

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

Carl Jung

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

Carl Jung

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.

Carl Jung

One who looks outside, dreams. One who looks inside, awakens.

Carl Jung

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.

Carl Jung

What did you do as a child that made the hours pass like minutes? Herein lies the key to your earthly pursuits ― Carl Jung
