Rock’em Sock’em !

When I was in Seattle (Land of Coffee) I went to Archie McPhee and got me a Carl Jung Action Figure !

For Spo-fans unfamiliar with Herr Doctor, he was a Swiss psychiatrist, who lived from 1875 to 1961.

He developed psychological ideas like The Collective Unconscious, The Archetype, Introvert/Extrovert personalities, and made The Complex into something more than wanting to sleep with mumsy.

Some of my favorite Jungian quotes –

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”

“Every country gets the foreigners it deserves.”

“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.”

“The greatest and most important problems of life are fundamentally insoluble. They can never be solved by only outgrown.”

“Only the wound physician heals.”

“Even the Pope has a confessor.”

“Don’t go chasing after infantile memories. Neurotics like nothing better than wallowing in the evils of the past and self-pity.” (paraphrased)

and his last words –

“Let’s have a really good red wine tonight.”
