Readings: Hegel

"Reading the newspaper in the early morning is a kind of realistic morning prayer. One orients one's attitude against the world and toward God [in one case], or toward that which the world is [in the other]. The former gives the same security as the latter, in that one knows where one stands."
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, notation from the Jena years
