Joseph Campbell #1

"This is an example of one of the ways in which the adventure can begin. A blunder -- apparently the merest chance -- reveals an unsuspected world, and the individual is drawn into a relationship with forces that are not rightly understood. As Freud has shown, blunders are not the merest chance. They are the result of suppressed desires and conflicts. They are ripples on the surface of life, produced by unsuspected springs. And these may be very deep -- as deep as the soul itself. The blunder may amount to the opening of a destiny."

- The Hero With a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell, p51
