Joseph Campbell: (March 26, 1904 – October 30, 1987)

(YouTube video: Bill Moyer interviews Joseph Campbell.)

All religions are true but none are literal.

All the gods, all the heavens, all the hells, are within you.

Apocalypse does not point to a fiery Armageddon but to the fact that our ignorance and our complacency are coming to an end... The exclusivism of there being only one way in which we can be saved, the idea that there is a single religious group that is in sole possession of the truth- that is the world as we know it that must pass away. What is the kingdom? It lies in our realization of the ubiquity of the divine presence in our neighbors, in our enemies, in all of us.

Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy.

If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are— if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.

God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. It's as simple as that.

I don't believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.

I don't have to have faith. I have experience.

If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path.

It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.

It may be a species of impudence to think that the way you understand God is the way God is.

Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.

Life is like arriving late for a movie, having to figure out what was going on without bothering everybody with a lot of questions, and then being unexpectedly called away before you find out how it ends.

Midlife crisis is what happens when you climb to the top of the ladder and discover that it's against the wrong wall.

Mythology may, in a real sense, be defined as other people's religion. And religion may, in a sense, be understood as popular misunderstanding of mythology.

Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.

Not all who hesitate are lost. The psyche has many secrets in reserve. And these are not disclosed unless required.

One thing that comes out in myths is that at the bottom of the abyss comes the voice of salvation. The black moment is the moment when the real message of transformation is going to come. At the darkest moment comes the light.

Regrets are illuminations come too late.

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

There seem to be only two kinds of people: Those who think that metaphors are facts, and those who know that they are not facts. Those who know they are not facts are what we call atheists, and those who think they are facts are religious. Which group really gets the message?

We can't cure the world of sorrows but we can choose to live in joy.

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

What is a god? A god is a personification of a motivating power of a value system that functions in human life and in the universe.

When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation, we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.
