“One needs death to be able to harvest the fruit. Without death, life would be meaningless, since
the long-lasting rises again and denies its own meaning. To be, and to enjoy your being, you need
death, and the limitations enables you to fulfil your being… If I accept death, then my trees green,
since dying increases life. If I plunge into the death encompassing the world, then my buds break
open. How much our life needs death!” – Carl Jung, The Red Book
