You can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs.

“If we fix on the old, we get stuck. When we hang onto any form, we are in danger of putrefaction.

“Hell is life drying up.

“The Hoarder, the the one in us that wants to keep, to hold on, must be killed. If we are hanging onto the form now, we’re not going to have the form next.

“You can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs.

“Destruction before creation.”

from: A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living (Collected Works of Joseph Campbell)
