Quote of the day

Of course, if I knew a remedy that could be injected into ten thousand people at one go, that would be popular, especially if one didn't have to do do anything about it oneself. But the very idea that you should begin by yourself, that is totally out of question. One must always have something that is good for a hundred thousand, for a million people, but not for the individual, for he is far too uninteresting... And the individual is utterly convinced of his nothingness that he makes no effort to get anywhere with himself, to develop inwardly in any way... It is naturally a false view that the individual is nothing. The individual is the vessel of life. Every individual is the bearer of life. C.G. Jung Speaking, p. 460-461
