Words for the Day

The world has embarked on the current of reality, and this its essence is not ‘always and everywhere.’ It is an essence which at every moment originates anew with the whole content of the Distinctive which it includes. It is an essence which includes all distinctiveness and yet is itself universal, which recognizes itself as a whole with every instant. It is: Existence.

Franz Rosenzweig, *The Star of Redemption*, translated by William W. Hallo from the 2nd edition of 1930, University of Notre Dame Press, 2014/1985, 120.
