James Hillman Quotes

James Hillman Quotes: ...you find your genius by looking in the mirror of your life. Your visible image shows your inner truth, so when you're estimating others, what you see is what you get.

Quotes about James Hillman: In the cosmology behind psychology, there is no reason for anyone to be here or to do anything... I'am an accident - a result - and therefore a victim... if I'm only a result of past causes, then I'm a victim of those past causes.... or, if you look at it from the sociological perspective, I'm the result of upbringing, class, race, gender, social prejudices, and economics.

Quotes about James Hillman: I like to imagine a person's psyche to be like a boardinghouse full of characters.
