"The Soul, the anima, establishes the relationship to the unconscious. In a certain sense this is also a relationship to the collectivity of the dead: for the unconscious corresponds to the mythic land of the dead, the land of the ancestors". (Jung: Memories, Dreams, and Reflections, p. 191)

"From that time on the dead have become ever more distinct for me as the voices of the Unanswered, Unresolved, and Unredeemed; for since the questions and demands which my destiny required me to answer did not come from the inner world. These conversations with the dead formed a kind of prelude to what I had to communicate to the world about the unconscious, a kind of pattern of order and interpretation of its general contents...

...It was then that I dedicated myself to the service of the psyche. I loved it and hated it but it was my greatest wealth. My delivering myself over to it, as it were, was the only way I could endure my existence and live as fully as possible"  (Jung: Memories, Dreams, and Reflections, p. 191)
