I'm curious which ones you like from these to authors.. or any others you've found or have come up with yourself.. the ones in my signature I created on my own... http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/c/carl_jung_3.html http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/w/wayne_dyer.html When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate. We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses. Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other. The word "belief" is a difficult thing for me. I don't believe. I must have a reason for a certain hypothesis. Either I know a thing, and then I know it - I don't need to believe it. A particularly beautiful woman is a source of terror. As a rule, a beautiful woman is a terrible disappointment. 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. Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. If one does not understand a person, one tends to regard him as a fool. It is a fact that cannot be denied: the wickedness of others becomes our own wickedness because it kindles something evil in our own hearts. Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people. The healthy man does not torture others - generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers. Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you. Masses are always breeding grounds of psychic epidemics. It all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are in themselves. I really like this last one from Carl Jung... A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe. How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours. It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there's nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized. Judgements prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances. The fact that you are willing to say, "I do not understand, and it is fine," is the greatest understanding you could exhibit. The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about. You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with. Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say. When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.
