A Lovely Moment

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. – Carl Jung

Today, I came across a quote by Carl Jung and it reminded me that all of out thoughts have been thought before by other people. It is something I remember being pointed out by Hector, the English master in the movie The History Boys.

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.” – Hector

What a lovely moment it was.
