“Psyche’s first trait, and the way we know her first, is neither by her labors, nor the work of soul-making, nor by her sufferings for love, nor in her oppression in lostness—the absence and deprivation of soul. These all come later. We know Psyche first by the primary characteristic given with her nature: Psyche is beautiful.”

James Hillman, ‘The Thought of the Heart’
