Dr. Carl Jung

Carl Jung, 1958

“The Swiss psychiatrist, in his library in Zurich, agreed with the title of James Thurber’s book, “Let Your Mind Alone.” ‘But,’ he remarked, ‘unfortunately, your mind is not discreet enough to leave you alone.’ I said I would make an unsatisfactory patient for the psychiatrist because I gained my happiness through my work. ‘Ah,’ he answered, ‘the secret of happiness – those who seek happiness can never find it. You should wait till it comes, like the arrival of a guest later in the evening.’”

Dr. Jung was photographed on this day, May 9, in 1958. See a second portrait of Dr. Jung.
