'The world of symbols is a living world.'
'The world of symbols is a living world. Just as the seed contains a whole potential tree, so a symbol synthesizes a whole section of knowledge. By working with a dozen symbols, we have all the knowledge. It is impossible for us to take a large library with us everywhere, but with a few symbols we carry all the sacred books of humanity, because all these books are summed up in a few symbols. But to decipher these symbols, for them to speak to us, we must manage to make them alive within us.'
