InkedCapture_LIMy Featured Blogger this week is Priston of Quoteliv. I know little about Priston except that he’s in the midst of assembling a marvelously well-curated collection of quotes by history-making people. We may not agree with everything they say, but there’s no denying that their thoughts have influenced our world.

Quoteliv

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

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

Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

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

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

You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.

Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.

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

    Quotation collections are invaluable, whether we agree or not with the observations. Jung has exerted significant influence on western civilization, and is worth studying. Christians, however, should approach his works with caution.

    Take this quote from the original page to which you linked: “No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.”

    It exudes the air of extremely profound philosophy, and accurately reflects the “perception” of some people struggling in this fallen world.

    Yet, Christians know hell has nothing to do with heaven. And they also recognize that we don’t grow or reach up to heaven (e.g. Babel’s Tower)… but, on the contrary, we have a compassionate God who reaches down to us, in the miracle of the Incarnation.

    By all means, we should read the works of thoughtful writers who possess different worldviews than ours… but we should not do so uncritically. Thanks for sharing this site. I’ll explore it further.
