Joseph Campbell quotes

American philosopher, prolific author, teacher, lecturer and editor, 1904-1987


Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is Whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.

 

One way or another, we all have to find what best fosters the flowering of our humanity in this contemporary life, and dedicate ourselves to that.

 

When you see the Earth from space, you don't see any divisions of nation-states there. This may be the symbol of the new mythology to come; this is the country we will celebrate, and these are the people we are one with.

 

Out of perfection nothing can be made. Every process involves breaking something up.

 

Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.

 

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.

 

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

 

The warrior's approach is to say "yes" to life: "yea" to it all.

 

The world is full of people that have stopped listening to themselves or have listened only their neighbors to learn what they ought to do, how they ought to behave, and what the values are they should be living for.

 

We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.
