Man is the mirror which God holds up to himself, or the sense organ with which he apprehends his being. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 112

As you know, in olden times the ancestral souls lived in pots in the kitchen. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 168

Incidentally, if I were a Jew-eater I would hardly bring out books together with Jews as i have just done, or introduce books by Jewish authors. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 167

No one is more deeply convinced than I that the Jews are a people with a culture. Between culture and cultural form there is, as we know, an essential difference. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 167

For many years I’m closely following the progress of mediumistic research, but I must say that I hardly ever came across a more wonderful case of mediumism than the Margery case. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 166

In “The Secret of the Golden Flower” the “As Above, So Below” of the West is harmonized with the Taoism of the East ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 12

In his phenomenal form man develops into a multiplicity of individuals in each of whom the central monad is enclosed as the life-principle; but immediately, before birth even, at the moment of conception, it separates into the bi-polar phenomena of essence and life (hsing and ming). ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 13

Essence (hsing), undoubtedly related to logos, appears closely knit with life (ming) when entering phenomena. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 14

The anima was thought of as especially linked with the bodily processes; at death it sinks to the earth and decays. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 15.

The animus, on the other hand, is the higher soul; after death it rises in the air, where at first it is active for a time and then evaporates in ethereal space, or flows back into the reservoir of life. In living men, the two correspond in a certain degree to the cerebral and sympathetic nervous system. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 15

The animus dwells in the eyes, the anima in the abdomen. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 15

The animus is bright and active, the anima is dark and earth-bound. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 15

But, if the ego has made an effort to strive upward in spite of the process of ” externalization, it maintains for a time (as long, in fact, as it is reinforced by the powers of sacrifice of its survivors) a relatively happy life, each according to its deserts. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Pages 16-17

But, if the ego has made an effort to strive upward in spite of the process of ” externalization, it maintains for a time (as long, in fact, as it is reinforced by the powers of sacrifice of its survivors) a relatively happy life, each according to its deserts. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Pages 16-17

The ego withdraws from its entanglement in the world, and after death remains alive because ” interiorization” has prevented the wasting of the life-forces in the outer world. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 17

Instead of these being dissipated, they have made within the inner rotation of monad a center of life which is independent of bodily existence. Such an ego is a god, deus, shen. ~Carl Jung, Secret of the Golden Flower, Page 17

It is no pleasure to be well known. You are then like a city on a mountain and cannot remain hidden. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page157

Its development in Germany will also be crucial for us. Freud once told me, very rightly: “The fate of psychotherapy will be decided in Germany.” CarlJung,Letters Vol. I, Pages 155-156

What with the hue and cry against me it has been completely forgotten that by far the greatest number of psychotherapists in Germany are Jews. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 155-156

People do not know, nor is it said in public, that I have intervened personally with the regime on behalf of certain Jewish psychotherapists. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 155-156

I am absolutely not an opponent of the Jews even though I am an opponent of Freud’s. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 154-155

I criticize him [Freud] because of his materialistic and intellectualistic and-last but not least-irreligious attitude and not because he is a Jew. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 154-155

Infinite nuances are needed if justice is to be done to human beings. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 154-155

My relation with Germany is very recent and is due to idiotic altruism and not at all to political sentiment. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 154-155
