Choosing from thousands of Jung quotes....

Cliff Notes on Carl Jung can be found here or here.  Quotes here:

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

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

“You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.” 

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” 

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” 

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

“Thinking is difficult, that’s why most people judge.” 

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

“The man who promises everything is sure to fulfil nothing, and everyone who promises too much is in danger of using evil means in order to carry out his promises, and is already on the road to perdition.” 

“Midlife is the time to let go of an overdominant ego and to contemplate the deeper significance of human existence.”
