Red Book

Love and forethinking are in one and the same place.

Love cannot be without forethinking, and forethinking cannot be without love.

Man is always too much in one or the other.

This comes with human nature.

Animals and plants seem to have enough in every way, only man staggers between too much and too little.

He wavers, he is uncertain how much he must give here and how much there.

His knowledge and ability is insufficient, and yet he must still do it himself.

Man doesn’t only grow from within himself for he is also creative from within himself.

The God becomes revealed in him.

Human nature is little skilled in divinity, and therefore man fluctuates between too much and too little. ~Carl Jung, The Red Book, Page 253
