    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)

    The essence of the modern state is that the universal be bound up with the complete freedom of its particular members and with private well-being, that thus the interests of family and civil society must concentrate themselves on the state.... It is only when both these moments subsist in their strength that the state can be regarded as articulated and genuinely organized.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    When liberty is mentioned, we must always be careful to observe whether it is not really the assertion of private interests which is thereby designated.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    The True is the whole. But the whole is nothing other than the essence consummating itself through its development. Of the Absolute it must be said that it is essentially a result, that only in the end is it what it truly is; and that precisely in this consists its nature, viz. to be actual, subject, the spontaneous becoming of itself.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    Mere goodness can achieve little against the power of nature.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    America is, therefore the land of the future, where, in the ages that lie before us, the burden of the World’s history shall reveal itself. It is a land of desire for all those who are weary of the historical lumber-room of Old Europe.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    But what experience and history teach is this—that peoples and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
