Jung on “… a balance between joy and sorrow

“The principle aim in psychotherapy is not to transport the patient to an impossible state of happiness, but to help him acquire steadfastness and philosophic patience in face of suffering. Life demands for its completion and fulfillment, a balance between joy and sorrow.” (C.W. 16, par. 185)

Thanks to Elie Humbert for this selected quote. Humbert, Elie, C.G. Jung – The Fundamentals of Theory and Practice, p. 136, 1984.
