The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.

The man who promises everything is sure to fulfil nothing, and everyone who promises too much is in danger of using evil means in order to carry out his promises, and is already on the road to perdition.

Don’t hold on to someone who’s leaving, otherwise you won’t meet the one who’s coming.

Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.

Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.

Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.

 image quote by Carl Jung

Thinking is difficult, that's why most people judge.

I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.

Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.

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

What we need is a cup of understanding, a barrel of love, and an ocean of patience.

Children have real understanding only of that which they invent themselves, and each time that we try to teach them too quickly, we keep them from reinventing it themselves.

Education, for most people, means trying to lead the child to resemble the typical adult of his society . . . but for me and no one else, education means making creators. . . . You have to make inventors, innovators...not conformists

 image quote by Carl Jung

Loneliness does not come from having no people around you, but from being unable to communicate the things that seen important to you.

Light creates ambience and feel of a place, as well as the expression of a structure.

A house is a machine for living in.

Intelligence is what you use when you don't know what to do.

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

Life never stops. The torment of men will be eternal, unless the function of creating and acting and changing, living intensely through each day, be considered an eternal joy.

The materials of city planning are: sky, space, trees, steel and cement;

in that order and that hierarchy.

 image quote by Carl Jung

I am not what has happened to me. I am what I choose to become.

Half an hour's meditation each day is essential, except when you are busy.

Then a full hour is needed.

Great occasions for serving God come seldom, but little ones surround us daily.

To create architecture is to put in order. Put what in order? Function and objects.

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.

Chairs are architecture, sofas are bourgeois.

There are always four sides to a story: your side, their side, the truth and what really happened.

 image quote by Carl Jung

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

I have made a pact with my tongue, not to speak when my heart is disturbed.

Anxiety is the greatest evil that can befall a soul, except sin.

God commands you to pray, but He forbids you to worry.

What is desired is that the teacher ceased being a lecturer, satisfied with transmitting ready-made solutions. His role should rather be that of a mentor stimulating initiative and research.

Have patience with all things, But, first of all with yourself.

It is with children that we have the best chance of studying the development of logical knowledge, mathematical knowledge, physical knowledge, and so forth.

The home should be the treasure chest of living.

 image quote by Carl Jung

To be normal is the ideal aim of the unsuccessful.

People who know little are usually great talkers, while men who know much say little.

If our religion is based on salvation, our chief emotions will be fear and trembling. If our religion is based on wonder, our chief emotion will be gratitude.

Evolution of mankind is paralleled by the increase and expansion of consciousness.

The difference between a good life and a bad life is how well you walk through the fire

During the earliest stages the child perceives things like a solipsist who is unaware of himself as subject and is familiar only with his own actions.

Thinking is difficult, that’s why most people judge.

 image quote by Carl Jung

The shoe that fits one person, pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.

Filling the conscious mind with ideal conceptions is a characteristic of Western theosophy, but not the confrontation with the Shadow and the world of darkness. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.

Are we forming children who are only capable of learning what is already known? Or should we try to develop creative and innovative minds, capable of discovery from the preschool age on, throughout life?

Genius is personal, decided by fate, but it expresses itself by means of system.

There is no work of art without system.

Go to the meadows, go to the garden, go to the woods. Open your eyes!

We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.

The city of Chandigarh is planned to human scale.

It puts us in touch with the infinite cosmos and nature. It provides us with places and buildings for all human activities by which the citizens can live a full and harmonious life. Here the radiance of nature and heart are within our reach.

 image quote by Roger Federer

If you die trying, you die winning.

Tennis can be a very frustrating sport.

There is no way around the hard work. Embrace it. You have to put in the hours because there is always something you can improve. [Y]ou have to put in a lot of sacrifice and effort for sometimes little reward but you have to know that, if you put in the right effort, the reward will come.

Through my LSD experience and my new picture of reality, I became aware of the wonder of creation, the magnificence of nature and of the animal and plant kingdom. I became very sensitive to what will happen to all this and all of us.

It is not those who commit the least faults who are the most holy, but those who have the greatest courage, the greatest generosity, the greatest love, who make the boldest efforts to overcome themselves, and are not immediately apprehensive about tripping.

Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.

Real liberation comes not from glossing over or repressing painful states of feeling, but only from experiencing them to the full.


 image quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.

Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.

I believe that if people would learn to use LSD's vision-inducing capability more wisely, under suitable conditions, in medical practice and in conjunction with meditation, then in the future this problem child could become a wonderchild.
