red book

Jung’s Red Book is one of those that makes you feel as if each random page you open was especially written for you:
‘… we do not love the condition of our being brought low, although or precisely because only there do we attain clear knowledge of ourselves’.

sometimes curiosity about our deepest fears can move us forward rather than harm us


‘We solve those riddles from which we suffer, but not those which please us.’
[p 238, The Red Book Liber Novus: A Reader’s Edition, W.W. Norton & Co]
