I’m not sending you [Salome[ away.

You must not be far from me.

But give to me out of your fullness, not your longing. I cannot satisfy your poverty just as you cannot still my longing.

You possess nothing, so how can you give?

Insofar as you give, you demand. Elijah, old man, listen you are a patriarchal Jew, you have an old-fashioned gratitude.

Do not give away your daughter, but set her on her [Salome] own feet.

She might dance, sing or play the lute before people, and they might throw flashing coins at her feet and cannot still my longing. ~Carl Jung, The Black Books, Vol. IV, Page 252
