Words for the Day

The world can be wealth because it exists; it is itself existence, and fullness is its manifestation, the first of all statements about existence. The root-word still precedes the plenitude of adjectives; chaos is within creation, not prior to it; the beginning is in the beginning.

Franz Rosenzweig, *The Star of Redemption*, translated by William W. Hallo from the 2nd edition of 1930, University of Notre Dame Press, 2014/1985, 134.
