quote of the day

"The historical world in which we find ourselves resembles a fast-moving vehicle, which at one moment presents its comfort aspects, at the next its horror aspects. It is the Titanic, and it is Leviathan. Since a moving object entices the eye, it will remain concealed to most of the ship’s guests that they simultaneously exist in another realm, one where a perfect stillness reigns. This second realm is so superior as to contain the first within it like a plaything, as merely one of an uncountable number of other manifestations. This second realm is the harbor, is one's homeland, is the peace and security that everyone carries within them. We call it the forest."

- Ernst Juenger
