Carl Jung

“The pathway to completion as a human being is through the embodiment of the monster. You can’t be a good person until you discover your capacity for evil. Not by acting it out in the world, but by understanding it and bringing it under your control. You see, there’s a big difference between someone who is naive and is a ‘good person’——they’re a good person because they can’t not be. They’re like a domesticated house cat. They don’t even have the capacity to be bad. There’s no morality in that. The morality comes when you’re a monster, and you can control it.”

-Jordan Peterson quoting Carl Jung
