C.G. Jung His Myth in Our Time

Jung shared this quality of intensive Eros with other Swiss, like Nochiolas of Flue, General Dufour and Pestalozzi, all of them men who turned toward their suffering fellow men in an attitude of love and who found their vocation through this attitude rather than in political or academic power struggles.

Women, who are by nature closer to the principle of Eros than to that of Logos, understood him better as a rule than men did.

His gray schnauzer, Joggi, once caught his paw in a door, and as Jung was trying to free it the dog bit him, simply out of pain. Jung liked to tell this story and then add with a laugh: “patients do that too, sometimes.” — Marie-Louise von Franz, C.G. Jung: His Myth in Our Time, Page 23
