Carl Jung on Learning from Patients

February 7, 2012

“From my encounters with patients and with the psychic phenomena which they have paraded before me in an endless stream of images, I have learned an enormous amount – not just knowledge, but above all insight into my own nature. …My patients brought me so close to the reality of human life that I could not help learning essential things from them. Encounters with people of so many different kinds and on so many different psychological levels have been for me incomparably more important than fragmentary conversations with celebrities. The finest and most significant
conversations of my life were anonymous.”
~ Carl G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
