Openness

If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.

– C.G. Jung

Failure

We all must do what Christ did. We must make our experiment. We must make mistakes. We must live out our own version of life. And there will be error. If you avoid error you do not live.

-C.G. Jung

Freedom

Connection

An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling.

– C.G. Jung

Commitment

In the end, it is a moral question whether a man applies what he has learned or not.

-C.G. Jung

Self-Respect

The man who looks only outside and quails before the big battalions has nothing with which to combat the evidence of his senses and his reason.

-C.G. Jung, The Undiscovered Self (1957)
