On light and Darkness by Carl Jung

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
C.G. Jung
