    We ought, says Kant, to become acquainted with the instrument, before we undertake the work for which it is to be employed; for if the instrument be insufficient, all our trouble will be spent in vain. The plausibility of this suggestion has won for it general assent and admiration.... But the examination can be only carried out by an act of knowledge. To examine this so-called instrument is the same as to know it.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    But the life of Spirit is not the life that shrinks from death and keeps itself untouched by devastation, but rather the life that endures it and maintains itself in it. It wins its truth only when, in utter dismemberment, it finds itself.... Spirit is this power only by looking the negative in the face, and tarrying with it. This tarrying with the negative is the magical power that converts it into being. This power is identical with what we earlier called the Subject.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    It is easier to discover a deficiency in individuals, in states, and in Providence, than to see their real import and value.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    Once the state has been founded, there can no longer be any heroes. They come on the scene only in uncivilized conditions.
    —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)

    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)
