Being essentially the instrument of his work, the artist is subordinate to it, and we have no right to expect him to interpret it for us. He has done his utmost by giving it form, and we must leave the interpretation to others and to the future. CW 15 - par 161

Too many still look outwards, some believing in the illusion of victory or victorious power, others in treaties and laws, and others again in the overthrow of the existing order. But still too few look inwards, to their own selves, and still too few ask themselves whether the ends of human society might not best be served if each man tried to abolish the old order in himself, and to practise in his own person and in his own inward state those precepts and victories which he preaches at every street-corner, instead of always expecting these things of his fellow men. C.G. Jung, The Integration of the Personality.
