Joseph Campbell Quote: “Mythology is not a lie, mythology is poetry, it is metaphorical. It has been well said that mythology is the penultimate truth – penultimate because the ultimate cannot be put into words. It is beyond words. Beyond images, beyond that bounding rim of the Buddhist Wheel of Becoming. Mythology pitches the mind beyond that rim, to what can be known but not told.”

Joseph Campbell Quote: “Mythology is the womb of man’s initiation to life and death.”

Joseph Campbell Quote: “The folktale is the primer of the picture-language of the soul.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Now, one of the main problems of mythology is reconciling the mind to this brutal precondition of all life, which lives by the killing and eating of lives. You don’t kid yourself by eating only vegetables, either, for they, too, are alive. So the essence of life is this eating of itself! Life lives on lives, and the reconciliation of the human mind and sensibilities to that fundamental fact.”

Joseph Campbell Quote: “What am I? Am I the bulb that carries the light, or am I the light of which the bulb is a vehicle?”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Successful marriage is leading innovative lives together, being open, non-programmed. It’s a free fall: how you handle each new thing as it comes along. As a drop of oil on the sea, you must float, using intellect and compassion to ride the waves.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “A myth doesn’t have to be real to be true.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “But marriage is marriage, you know. Marriage is not a love affair. A love affair is a totally different thing. A marriage is a commitment to that which you are. That person is literally your other half. And you and the other are one. A love affair isn’t that. That is a relationship for pleasure, and when it gets to be unpleasurable, its off. But a marriage is a life commitment, and a life commitment means the prime concern of your life. If marriage is not the prime concern, you’re not married.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Every myth is psychologically symbolic. Its narratives and images are to be read, therefore, not literally, but as metaphors.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Full circle, from to tomb of the womb to the womb of the tomb, we come.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Freud tells us to blame our parents for all the shortcomings of our life, Marx tells us to blame the upper class of our society. But the only one to blame is oneself.”
