Quotes for Stories

No Light without Shadow
"There is no light without shadow and no psychic wholeness without imperfection. To round itself out, life calls not for perfection but for completeness; and for this the 'thorn in the flesh' is needed, the suffering of defects without which there is no progress and no ascent." - Carl Jung, Collected Works Vol. 12 (Psychology and Alchemy)

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” - Carl Jung, Collected Works Vol. 13 (Alchemical Studies)

“I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.” - Kenneth Branagh, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

Miles to Go Before I Sleep
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep." - Robert Frost, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

"Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell.
They that had fought so well
Came through the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred." - Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Charge of the Light Brigade
