When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature.

    Bei Entscheidungen von untergeordneter Bedeutung habe ich es immer als vorteilhaft empfunden, alle Vor- und Nachteile in Betracht zu ziehen. in lebenswichtigen Angelegenheiten wie der Wahl eines Partners oder eines Berufes sollte die Entscheidung jedoch aus dem Unbewussten kommen, von irgendwo in uns selbst. in den wichtigen entscheidungen des persönlichen lebens sollten wir, denke ich, von den tiefen inneren bedürfnissen unserer natur geleitet werden.

    Al tomar una decisión de menor importancia, siempre me ha parecido ventajoso considerar todos los pros y contras. en asuntos vitales, sin embargo, como la elección de pareja o profesión, la decisión debe venir del inconsciente, de algún lugar dentro de nosotros mismos. en las decisiones importantes de la vida personal, creo que debemos regirnos por las profundas necesidades internas de nuestra naturaleza.
