Carl Jung

  1. Yes, I like this quote. I’d not come across it before. Thanks. I think Jung had a lot of good ideas and I suspect I am more aligned with his way than Freud’s. But then I am also quite Freudian in my outlook. The nature of instinct and mind is fascinating.

  2. are the influences the ‘old ones’ have on our thinking. And outlook. I guess you have to study to really appreciate that fully. I’ve not, so I had better leave it at that.
