Some things I've learned over the week... best said by Jung:
"Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health."
"Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not."
"Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people."
"Our heart glows, and secret unrest gnaws at the root of our being. Dealing with the unconscious has become a question of life for us."
"Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity."
"We deem those happy who from the experience of life have learnt to bear its ills without being overcome by them."
What a brilliant soul.....
