It is thus the coldest and meanest of all deaths, with no more significance than cutting off a head of cabbage or swallowing a mouthful of water.
    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)

    An idea is always a generalization, and generalization is a property of thinking. To generalize means to think.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
