„But in the dream the forms are quirked by the peculiar troubles of the dreamer, whereas in myth the problem and solutions shown are directly valid for all mankind.“

—  Joseph Campbell, libro The Hero with a Thousand Faces

Origine: The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), Chapter 1
Contesto: Dream is personalized myth, myth is depersonalized dream; both myth and dream are symbolic in the same general way of the dynamics of the psyche. But in the dream the forms are quirked by the peculiar troubles of the dreamer, whereas in myth the problem and solutions shown are directly valid for all mankind.

„The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.“

„The passage of the mythological hero“

—  Joseph Campbell, libro The Hero with a Thousand Faces

Origine: The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), Chapter 2
Contesto: The passage of the mythological hero may be overground, incidentally; fundamentally it is inward—into depths where obscure resistances are overcome, and long lost, forgotten powers are revivified, to be made available for the transfiguration of the world.... Something of the light that blazes invisible within the abysses of its normally opaque materiality breaks forth, with an increasing uproar. The dreadful mutilations are then seen as shadows, only, of an immanent, imperishable eternity; time yields to glory; and the world sings with the prodigious, angelic, but perhaps finally monotonous, siren music of the spheres. Like happy families, the myths and the worlds redeemed are all alike.

Origine: The Power of Myth

„People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking.“

—  Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

Episode 2, Chapter 4
The Power of Myth (1988)
Contesto: People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. That's what it's all finally about.

„I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.“

—  Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

Origine: The Power of Myth (book), p. 120
Contesto: Moyers: Do you ever have the sense of... being helped by hidden hands?
Campbell: All the time. It is miraculous. I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time — namely, that if you do 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. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
