This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today. This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory.
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
First Inaugural Address (1933) | Franklin D. Roosevelt
The shadow is a moral problem … for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real …
[T]here are certain features [of the shadow] which offer the most obstinate resistance to moral control and … are usually bound up with projections …While some traits peculiar to the shadow can be recognized without too much difficulty as one’s own personal qualities … [In the case of projections] the [trait] appears to lie, beyond all possibility of doubt, in the other person …
Projections change the world into the replica of one’s own unknown face.
