Carl Gustav Jung

Carl Gustav Jung, the eminent psychiatrist, was once asked by a newspaper reporter if he believed that God existed.

When the interview was published , he was quoted as replying, “I do not believe I know”.

In fact, what he had actually said was, “I do not believe – I know”.

A printer’s error had completely changed the meaning of his reply!

How little it takes to twist or distort even the most definite and direct of statements.

We must ALWAYS be very careful about the exact meaning of what we speak or write……
