Words for the Day

For the voice of the living God echoes only where there is life, even if that life be intoxicated with gods and hostile to God. … This wealth of life, full of contradictions, becomes possible through the self-containedness of the mythical world. … The spirit of myth is the foundation of the realm of the beautiful.

Franz Rosenzweig, *The Star of Redemption,* translated by William W. Hallo from the 2nd edition of 1930, University of Notre Dame Press, 2014/1985, 38.
