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.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “We are all reflexes of the image of the Bodhisattva. The sufferer within us is that divine being.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The best things cannot be told, the second best are misunderstood. After that comes civilized conversation; after that, mass indoctrination; after that, intercultural exchange.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The function of the artist is the mythologization of the culture and the world. In the visual arts there were two men whose work handled mythological themes in a marvelous way: Paul Klee and Pablo Picasso.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Preachers err by trying to talk people into belief; better they reveal the radiance of their own discovery.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The quest for fire occurred not because anyone knew what the practical uses for fire would be, but because it was fascinating.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “I will never forget the experience I had when I was in Japan, a place that never heard of the Fall and the Garden of Eden. One of the Shinto texts says that the processes of nature cannot be evil. Every natural impulse is not to be corrected but to be sublimated, to be beautified. There is a glorious interest in the beauty of nature and cooperation with nature, so that in some of those gardens you don’t know where nature begins and art ends – this was a tremendous experience.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The Greeks, it will be recalled, regarded Eros, the god of love, as the eldest of the gods; but also as the youngest, born fresh and dewy-eyed in every living heart.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “When you make the sacrifice in marriage, you’re sacrificing not to each other but to unity in a relationship.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Vegetarianism is the first turning away from life, because life lives on lives. Vegetarians are just eating something that can’t run away.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The secret cause of all suffering,” he said, “is mortality itself, which is the prime condition of life. It cannot be denied if life is to be affirmed.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “At such moments, you realize that you and the other are, in fact, one. It’s a big realization. Survival is the second law of life. The first is that we are all one.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The seizure of passionate love can be, in such a context, only illicit, breaking in upon the order of one’s dutiful life in virtue as a devastating storm.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Eternity has nothing to do with time. Time is what shuts you out from eternity. Eternity is now. It is the transcendent dimension of the now to which myth refers.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “You know, when real trouble comes your humanity is awakened. The fundamental human experience is that of compassion.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The departure from the world is regarded not as a fault, but as the first step into that noble path at the remotest turn of which illumination is to be won.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Tragedy is an unfinished comedy.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The world is full of people who have stopped listening to themselves.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “If you realize what the real problem is-losing yourself-you realize that this itself is the ultimate trial.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “He must put aside his pride, his virtue, beauty and life and bow or submit to the absolutely intolerable.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Heroism is a matter of integrity – beco ming more and more at each step ourselves.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Where is your bliss station? You have to try to find it.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “I always tell my students follow your bliss. When you have that feeling then stay with it and don’t let anyone throw you off.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “You don’t have to believe that there was a King Arthur to get the significance of those stories, but Christians say we have to believe there was a Christ, or the miracles don’t make sense.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The idea of Truth with capital “T”-that there is something called Truth that’s beyond the range of the relativity of the human mind trying to think-is what I call “the error of the found truth.” The trouble with all of these damned preachers is the error of the found truth. When they get that tremolo in the voice and tell you what God has said, you know you’ve got a faker.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The perfect human being is uninteresting-the Buddha who leaves the world, you know. It is the imperfections of life that are lovable.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “All babies are Buddha babies.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Chief Seattle, of the Indians that inhabited the Seattle area, wrote a wonderful paper that has to do with putting oneself in tune with the universe. He said.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “There is no make-believe about heaven, future bliss, and compensation, to alleviate the bitter majesty, but only utter darkness, the void of unfulfillment, to receive and eat back the lives that have been tossed forth from the womb only to fail.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The myth is not my own; I have it from my mother. Euripides.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “No tribal rite has yet been recorded which attempts to keep winter from descending; on the contrary: the rites all prepare the community to endure, together with the rest of nature, the season of the terrible cold.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Essentially, mythologies are enormous poems that are renditions of insights, giving some sense of the marvel, the miracle and wonder of life.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “People who don’t have a concept of the whole can do very unfortunate things.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “In the absence of an effective general mythology, each of us has his private, unrecognized, rudimentary, yet secretly potent pantheon of dreams.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The only way you can talk about this great tide in which you’re a participant is as Schopenhauer did: the universe is a dream dreamed by a single dreamer where all the dream characters dream too.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “An old Apache storyteller reminds us.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Any god who can invent hell is no candidate for the Salvation Army.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “This is all I ever wanted – to help students and artists see myth as a reflection of the one sublime adventure of life, and then to breathe new life into it.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “The encounter and separation, for all its wildness, is typical of the sufferings of love. For when a heart insists on its destiny, resisting the general blandishment, then the agony is great; so too the danger. Forces, however, will have been set in motion beyond the reckoning of the senses. Sequences of events from the corners of the world will draw gradually together, and miracles of coincidence bring the inevitable to pass.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “He must put aside his pride, his virtue, beauty, and life and bow or submit to the absolutely intolerable. Then he finds that he and his opposite are not of differing species, but one flesh.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Life will always be sorrowful. We can’t change it, but we can change our attitude toward it.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Woman, in the picture language of mythology, represents the totality of what can be known. The hero is the one who comes to know... And if he can match her import, the two, the knower and the known, will be released from every limitation... The hero who can take her as she is, without undue commotion but with the kindness and assurance she requires, is potentially the king, the incarnate god, of her created world.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “This is one of the glorious things about the mother-goddess religions, where the world is the body of the Goddess, divine in itself, and divinity isn’t something ruling over and above a fallen nature.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “If you want to understand what’s most important to a society, don’t examine its art or literature, simply look at its biggest buildings.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “You don’t understand death, you learn to acquiesce in death.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Why re-enter such a world? Why attempt to make plausible, or even interesting, to men and women consumed with passion, the experience of transcendental bliss? As dreams that were momentous by night may seem simply silly in the light of day, so the poet and the prophet can discover themselves playing the idiot before a jury of sober eyes.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “How to teach again what has been taught correctly it incorrectly 1000 thousand times, throughout the millenniums of mankind’s prudent folly? That is the hero’s ultimate difficult task. How to render back into light-world language the speech-defying pronouncements of the dark? Many failures attest to the difficulties of this life-affirmative threshold.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “He who thinks he knows, doesn’t know. He who knows that he doesn’t know, knows. For in this context, to know is not to know. And not to know is to know.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Modern romance, like Greek tragedy, celebrates the mystery of dismemberment, which is life in time. The happy ending is justly scorned as a misrepresentation; for the world, as we know it, as we have seen it, yields but one ending: death, disintegration, dismemberment, and the crucifixion of our heart with the passing of the forms that we have loved.”
Joseph Campbell Quote: “Our time has changed, and it’s changed and changed, and it continues to change so fast, that what was proper fifty years ago is not proper today. So the virtues of the past are the vices of today, and many of what were thought to be the vices of the past are the necessities of today. And the moral order has to catch up with the moral necessities of actual life in time, here and now, and that’s what it’s not doing, and that’s why it’s ridiculous to go back to the old-time religion.”
