No one rises above himself who has not• turned his most dangerous weapon against himself.

One who wants to rise above himself shall climb down and hoist himself onto himself and lug himself to the place of sacrifice.

But what must happen to a man until he realizes that outer visible success, that he can grasp with his hands, leads him astray.

What suffering must be brought upon humanity; until man gives up satisfying his longing for power over his fellow man and forever wanting others to be the same.

How much blood must go on flowing until man opens his eyes and sees the way to his own path and himself as the enemy; and becomes aware of his real success.

You ought to be able to live with yourself but not at your neighbor’s expense.

The herd animal is not his brother’s parasite and pest.

Man, you have even forgotten that you too are an animal.

You actually still seem to believe that life is better elsewhere.

Woe unto you if your neighbor also thinks so. But you may be sure that he does.

Someone must begin to stop being childish. ~Carl Jung, Red Book, The Way of the Cross, Paragraph 4.
