    What is rational is actual and what is actual is rational. On this conviction the plain man like the philosopher takes his stand, and from it philosophy starts in its study of the universe of mind as well as the universe of nature.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    Quite generally, the familiar, just because it is familiar, is not cognitively understood. The commonest way in which we deceive either ourselves or others about understanding is by assuming something as familiar, and accepting it on that account; with all its pros and cons, such knowing never gets anywhere, and it knows not why.... The analysis of an idea, as it used to be carried out, was, in fact, nothing else than ridding it of the form in which it had become familiar.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    Animals are in possession of themselves; their soul is in possession of their body. But they have no right to their life, because they do not will it.

    —Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)
