Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior.
Man is the measure of all things: of things which are, that they are, and of things which are not, that they are not.
Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolized.
Man is a political animal. A man who lives alone is either a Beast or a God.
The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances.
At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law & justice he is the worst.
And every man ought to say to himself, “Am I really the kind of man who has the right to act in such a way that humanity might guide itself by my actions?”
Only man as an individual human being lives; the state is just a system, a mere machine for sorting and tabulating the masses. Anyone, therefore, who thinks in terms of men minus the individual, in huge numbers, atomizes himself and becomes a thief and a robber to himself. He is infected with the leprosy of collective thinking and has become an inmate of that insalubrious stud-farm called the totalitarian State.
It is not that present-day man is capable of greater evil than the man of antiquity or the primitive. He merely has incomparably more effective means with which to realize his propensity to evil.
CG Jung: Thoughts grow in me like a forest, populated by many different animals. But man is domineering in his thinking, and therefore he kills the pleasure of the forest and that of the wild animals. Man is violent in his desire, and he himself becomes a darker forest and a sickened forest animal. Just as I have freedom in the world, I also have freedom in my thoughts. Freedom is conditional.
