"The great events of world history are,
at bottom, profoundly unimportant.
In the last analysis, the essential thing
is the life of the individual.
This alone makes history, here alone do the
great transformations first take place,
and the whole future, the whole history
of the world, ultimately spring as a gigantic
summation from these hidden sources
In our most private and most subjective lives
we are not only the passive witnesses of our age,
and its sufferers.
We make our own epoch."
Carl G Jung
