The Hero's Journey: Joseph Campbell on His Life and Work
The Hero's Journey: Joseph Campbell on His Life and Work

Joseph Campbell
b. 3-26-1904; White Plains, NY
d. 10-30-1987; NYC

Joseph Campbell was a educator, author and public lecturer who brought his expertise in comparative mythology and religion to the public through series of interviews with Bill Moyers called The Power of Myth, and his role in inspiring film director George Lucas in the development of the Star War movies.

Campbell also met Carl Gustav Jung who said to him, “Aum is the sound the nature makes when it is in harmony with itself.”

Campbell was friends with Ed Ricketts whose lab was the setting for Cannery Row by John Steinbeck. Margaret Wilson helped Campbell with editing.

Joseph Campbell quotes ~
• “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
• “I don't have to have faith, I have experience.”
• “Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.”
• “I think the person who takes a job in order to live - that is to say, for the money - has turned himself into a slave.”
• “Love is a friendship set to music.”
• “Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.”
• “Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”
• “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.”
• “God is a metaphor for that which trancends all levels of intellectual thought. It's as simple as that.”
• “Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy.”
• “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.”
• “The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”
• “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.”
• “The night of December 25, to which date the Nativity of Christ was ultimately assigned, was exactly that of the birth of the Persian savior Mithra, who, as an incarnation of eternal light, was born the night of the winter solstice (then dated December).”

Thomas Carlyle

d. 2-5-1881; London

Mathematics teacher Thomas Carlyle is better known as a highly influential essayist, satirist, philosopher, and historian during the Victorian era and on the thinking of the Transcendentalists. His crisis of faith was representative of the new social order being brought about by the Industrial Revolution and scientific inquiry.

Thomas Carlyle quotes -
• “Culture is the process by which a person becomes all that they were created capable of being.”
• “History shows that the majority of people that have done anything great have passed their youth in seclusion.”
• “If you are ever in doubt as to whether to kiss a pretty girl, always give her the benefit of the doubt.”
• “In the long-run every Government is the exact symbol of its People, with their wisdom and unwisdom; we have to say, Like People like Government.”
• “The spiritual is the parent of the practical.”
• “To reform a world, to reform a nation, no wise man will undertake; and all but foolish men know, that the only solid, though a far slower reformation, is what each begins and perfects on himself.”

• A Carlyle Reader

Symbolic Forms,
Ernst Cassirer

Ernst Cassirer
b. 7-28-1874; Breslau, Germany (now Poland)
d. 4-13-1945; New York

Philosopher Esrnt Cassirer developed a philosophy of culture out of the tradition of neo-Kantianism. He left Germany, and his post as a professor at the University of Hamburg, when the Nazi's came to power.

Ernst Cassirer quotes ~
• “No former age was ever in such a favorable position with regard to the sources of our knowledge of human nature. Psychology, ethnology, anthropology, and history have amassed an astonishingly rich and constantly increasing body of facts. Our technical instruments for observation and experimentation have been immensely improved, and our analyses have become sharper and more penetrating. We appear, nevertheless, not yet to have found a method for the mastery and organization of this material.... Unless we succeed in finding a clue of Ariadne to lead us out of this labyrinth, we can have no real insight into the general character of human culture; we shall remain lost in a mass of disconnected and disintegrated data which seem to lack all conceptual unity.” ~ from the Introduction to An Essay on Man (1944)

Catt also founded the League of Women Voters and later became a prominent figure in the internationalist and pacifist movements that arose in the wake of World War I.

Carrie Chapman Catt quotes ~
• “No written law has ever been more binding than unwritten custom supported by popular opinion.”

• “In the adjustment of the new order of things, we women demand an equal voice; we shall accept nothing less.”
