Joseph Campbell Quote: “Each of us has capacities. The real trick is knowing the machinery of the boat in which you are crossing the channel.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Poets and artists who speak of the mystery are rare.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The relationship of these two gods is important: Hermes guides souls to the knowledge of eternal life by way of intellectual initiation, while Dionysus represents sudden inspiration, the energy of life pouring through time and throwing off old forms to make new life.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “I don’t believe in being interested in a subject just because it’s said to be important. I believe in being caught by it somehow or other.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “I don’t have to have faith, I have experience.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “They are equals, but not the same, because when you lose the tension of polarities you lose the tension of life.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The mighty hero of extraordinary powers, able to lift Mount Govardhan on a finger, and to fill himself with the terrible glory of the universe, is each of us: not the physical self visible in the mirror, but the King within.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Our own poor poets, I am afraid, have been so intimidated by our clinics and laboratories that they have abandoned the first principles of beginning, that of the festival; and the heart of the festival has always been the atmosphere of myth, of delight.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The big problem of any young person’s life is to have models to suggest possibilities. Nietzsche says, ‘Man is the sick animal.’ Man is the animal that doesn’t know what to do with itself. The mind has many possibilities, but we can live no more than one life. What are we going to do with ourselves?”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Man was not breathed into the earth. Man came out of the earth.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The modern hero-deed must be that of questing to bring to light again the lost Atlantis of the co-ordinated Soul.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “When a Sioux Indian would take the calumet, the pipe, he would hold it up stem to the sky so that the sun could take the first puff. And then he’d address the four directions always. In that frame of mind, when you’re addressing yourself to the horizon, to the world that you’re in, then you’re in your place in the world. It’s a different way to live.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Humor is the touchstone of the truly mythological as distinct from the more literal-minded and sentimental theological mood.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The adventure evoked a quality of his character that he didn’t know he possessed.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “But the makers of legend have seldom rested content to regard the world’s great heroes as mere human beings who broke past the horizons that limited their fellows and returned such boons as any man with equal faith and courage might have found.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “People often think of the Goddess as a fertility deity only. Not at all – she’s the muse. She’s the inspirer of poetry. She’s the inspirer of the spirit. So, she has three functions: one, to give us life; two, to be the one who receives us in death; and three, to inspire our spiritual, poetic realization.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “One looks, looks long, and the world comes in.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “If you have a sacred place and use it, take advantage of it, something will happen.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “One great thing about growing old is that nothing is going to lead to anything. Everything is of the moment.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “When people find out what it is that’s ticking in them, they get straightened out.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “People can go very badly awry in this individual quest. But when the quest is fortunate, there comes a lifetime of creative innovative action.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Man actually needs the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “I think what we are looking for is a way of experiencing the world that will open to us the transcendent that informs it, and at the same time forms ourselves within it. That is what people want. That is what the soul asks for.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “When your mind is simply trapped by the image out there so that you never make the reference to yourself, you have misread the image.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “It is, indeed, very little that we need! But lacking that, the adventure into the labyrinth is without hope.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “All these different mythologies give us the same essential quest. You leave the world that you’re in and go into a depth or into a distance or up to a height. There you come to what was missing in your consciousness in the world you formerly inhabited. Then comes the problem either of staying with that, and letting the world drop off, or returning with that boon and trying to hold on to it as you move back into your social world again. That’s not an easy thing to do.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Myth must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are the artists of one kind or another.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The best way to help mankind is through the perfection of yourself.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Such an image of one’s god becomes a final obstruction, one’s ultimate barrier. You hold on to your own ideology, your own little manner of thinking, and when a larger experience of God approaches, an experience greater than you are prepared to receive, you take flight from it by clinging to the image in your mind. This is known as preserving your faith.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “We are having experiences all the time which may on occasion render some sense of this, a little intuition of where your bliss is. Grab it. No one can tell you what it is going to be. You have to learn to recognize your own depth.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The happy ending of the fairy tale, the myth, and the divine comedy of the soul is to be read, not as a contradiction, but as a transcendence of the universal tragedy of man. The objective world remains what it was, but, because of a shift of emphasis within the subject, is beheld as though transformed.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Mythologies, in other words, mythologies and religions are great poems and, when recognized as such, point infallibly through things and events to the ubiquity of a.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfillment of that which is potential in each of us. Questing for it is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself. There is nothing you can do that’s more important than being fulfilled. You become a sign, you become a signal, transparent to transcendence; in this way you will find, live, become a realization of your own personal myth.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The mind of man, cleansed of secondary and merely temporal concerns, beholds with the radiance of a cleansed mirror a reflection of the rational mind of God.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “In the older view the goddess Universe was alive, herself organically the Earth, the horizon, and the heavens. Now she is dead, and the universe is not an organism, but a building, with gods at rest in it in luxury: not as personifications of the energies in their manners of operation, but as luxury tenants, requiring service. And Man, accordingly, is not as a child born to flower in the knowledge of his own eternal portion but as a robot fashioned to serve.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “You can keep an old tradition going only by renewing it in terms of current circumstances.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The first function of mythology is showing everything as a metaphor to transcendence.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Great Brahma from his mystic heaven groans, And all his priesthood moans.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “It has always been the prime function of mythology and rite to supply the symbols that carry the human spirit forward, in counteraction to those that tend to tie it back.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Without passion, men are not willing to pay any price or bear any burden to set the captives free.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Religon is misunderstood mythology.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “You should be willing to be eaten also. You are food body.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “What gods are there, what gods have there ever been, that were not from man’s imagination?”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Mythology is to relate found truth to the living of a life.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “We have to let go of our plans if we are to become the person we are meant to be.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The first step to the knowledge of the wonder and mystery of life is the recognition of the monstrous nature of the earthly human realm as well as its glory, the realization that this is just how it is and that it cannot and will not be changed. Those who think they know how the universe could have been had they created it, without pain, without sorrow, without time, without death, are unfit for illumination.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “For people who are really alive to have life awakened is more important than to get a sandwich.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Only when that mortal “you” will have erased everything about itself that it cherishes and is holding to, will “you” have come to the brink of an experience of identity with that Being which is no being yet is the Being beyond the nonbeing of all things. Nor is It anything that you have ever known, ever named, or even thought about in this world:.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Everything, all the time, is causing everything else.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Eternity isn’t some later time. Eternity isn’t some long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension between here and now, where thinking and time cuts out. If you won’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere.”
