C.G. Jung, the Swiss depth psychologist, believed that each season of life had its own particular challenges.
“A human being would certainly not grow to be seventy or eighty years old if this longevity has no meaning for the species. It is neurotic to resist the imperatives of one’s advancing age. “
We cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning for what in the morning was true will by the afternoon become a lie.... Whoever carries over into the afternoon the law of the morning.... must pay with damage to his soul.”
