C.G. Jung Letters, Vol. 1: 1906-1950

To Jolande Jacobi

Dear Dr. Jacobi, 8 July 1947

I must confess I was against the C. G. Jung Institute only from aversion to the prominence given to my name.

However, that can be changed. It is not easy to get accustomed to the thought that “C.G. Jung” designates not merely my private person but something objective as well.

Your article is excellent.

Where do you get all this interesting information from?

Your various avocations are really remarkable.

I can soon say with Schopenhauer: legor et legar (I am read and shall be read).

I M making efforts to be lazy.

I wish I could grant you respite too.

Cordially yours,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Pages 469-470.

Note: The C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich was founded 24 Apr. 1948; J. had taken an active part in the preparatory work. Jung’s address on that occasion is in CW 18.
