Random quote of the day:

Random quote of the day:

“The stone has no uncertainties, no urge to communicate, and is eternally the same for thousands of years,” I would think, “while I am only a passing phenomenon which bursts into all kinds of emotions, like a flame that flares up quickly and then goes out.” I was but the sum of my emotions, and the Other in me was the timeless, imperishable stone.”

—Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
