"The normal present ..." Quote of Friedrich von Hardenberg

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
The normal present connects the past and the future through limitation. Contiguity results, crystallization by means of solidification. There also exists, however, a spiritual present that identifies past and future through dissolution, and this mixture is the element, the atmosphere of the poet.
