Reading Hegel

Famous quotes containing the words reading and/or hegel:

    Awareness of having better things to do with their lives is the secret to immunizing our children against false values—whether presented on television or in “real life.” The child who finds fulfillment in music or reading or cooking or swimming or writing or drawing is not as easily convinced that he needs recognition or power or some “high” to feel worthwhile.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    The History of the world is not the theatre of happiness. Periods of happiness are blank pages in it, for they are periods of harmony—periods when the antithesis is in abeyance.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
