Words for the Day

Life is richer than the world and its becoming. So too language in its individual structuring, and now art as well, are too abundant to be wholly conceivable in the idea of creation. The epoch of creation is only the beginning – albeit the everlasting beginning – even as it is mirrored in the brief life span of the work of art.

Franz Rosenzweig, *The Star of Redemption*, translated by William W. Hallo from the 2nd edition of 1930, University of Notre Dame Press, 2014/1985, 148.
