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.

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.

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

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?

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

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

 image quote by Carl Jung

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

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.

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

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

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

 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.

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

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

in that order and that hierarchy.

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.

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.

 image quote by Carl Jung

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

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

Chairs are architecture, sofas are bourgeois.

A house is a machine for living in.

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

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

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.

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.

 image quote by Carl Jung

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

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

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

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

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.

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

VOCATUS ATQUE NON VOCATUS DEUS ADERIT.

 image quote by Carl Jung

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

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

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

God takes pleasure to see you take your little steps;

and like a good father who holds his child by the hand, He will accommodate His steps to yours and will be content to go no faster than you. Why do you 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.

The brighter the light, the darker the shadow.

 image quote by Carl Jung

To be normal is the ideal aim of the unsuccessful.

Plants are shaped by cultivation and men by education.

.. We are born weak, we need strength; we are born totally unprovided, we need aid; we are born stupid, we need judgment. Everything we do not have at our birth and which we need when we are grown is given us by education.

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

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

The home should be the treasure chest of living.

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.

Only education is capable of saving our societies from possible collapse, whether violent, or gradual.

 image quote by Roger Federer

If you die trying, you die winning.

Be grateful for your difficulties and challenges, for they hold blessings.

In fact... Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health personal growth, individuation and self-actualisation.

We shall steer safely through every storm, so long as our heart is right, our intention fervent, our courage steadfast, and our trust fixed on God. If at times we are somewhat stunned by the tempest, never fear. Let us take breath, and go on afresh.

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.

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

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.

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

There is no work of art without system.

 image quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.

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.
