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

The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.

Jung

Quotes:

I have treated many hundreds of patients. Among those in the second half of life – that is to say, over 35 – there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life.

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

Seldom, or perhaps never, does a marriage develop into an individual relationship smoothly and without crises; there is no coming to consciousness without pain.

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

Where love reigns, there is no will to power; and where the will to power is paramount, love is lacking. The one is but the shadow of the other.

– Carl Gustav Jung (1875 – 1961)
