“I am astonished, disappointed, pleased with myself. I am distressed, depressed, and rapturous. I am all these things at once, and cannot add up the sum.

I am incapable of determining ultimate worth or worthlessness; I have no judgment about myself and my life. There is nothing I am quite sure about.

I have no definite convictions – not about anything, really. I know only that I was born and exist, and it seems to me that I have been carried along.

I exist on the foundation or something I do not know.

In spite of all uncertainties, I feel a solidity underlying all existence and a continuity in my mode of being. ” — Carl Jung, Memories Dreams and Reflections.
