„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

„The achievement of the hero is one that he is ready for and it's really a manifestation of his character.“

—  Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

Episode 1, Chapter 12
The Power of Myth (1988)
Contesto: The achievement of the hero is one that he is ready for and it's really a manifestation of his character. It's amusing the way in which the landscape and conditions of the environment match the readiness of the hero. The adventure that he is ready for is the one that he gets … The adventure evoked a quality of his character that he didn't know he possessed.

„This thing up here, this consciousness, thinks it's running the shop. It's a secondary organ.“

—  Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

Episode 1, Chapter 12
The Power of Myth (1988)
Contesto: This thing up here, this consciousness, thinks it's running the shop. It's a secondary organ. It's a secondary organ of a total human being, and it must not put itself in control. It must submit and serve the humanity of the body.

„You must remember: all of the great traditions, and little traditions, in their own time were scientifically correct. That is to say, they were correct in terms of the scientific image of that age.“

—  Joseph Campbell

Lecture 1A, 13:45
Mythology and the Individual (1997)
Contesto: The image of the cosmos must change with the development of the mind and knowledge; otherwise, the mythic statement is lost, and man becomes dissociated from the very basis of his own religious experience. Doubt comes in, and so forth. You must remember: all of the great traditions, and little traditions, in their own time were scientifically correct. That is to say, they were correct in terms of the scientific image of that age. So there must be a scientifically validated image. Now you know what has happened: our scientific field has separated itself from the religious field, or vice-versa. … This divorce this is a fatal thing, and a very unfortunate thing, and a totally unnecessary thing.
