If I am strong, so also are my intentions and presuppositions.

My own thought weakens and goes over into the idea.

The idea becomes strong; it is supported by its own strength.

I recognize this in the fact that Elijah is supported by the lions.

The lion is of stone.

My pleasure is dead and turned to stone, because I did hot love Salome.

This gave my thought the coldness of stone, and from this the idea took its solidity; which it needed to subjugate my thought.

It needed to be subjugated as it strove against Salome, since she appeared bad to it. (p. 128). ~Carl Jung, Liber Novus, Page 250, Draft, Footnote 198.
