Quote of the day

“Reflection” should be understood not simply as an act of thought, but rather as an attitude. It is a privilege born of human freedom in contradistinction to the compulsion of natural law. As the word itself testifies (“reflection” mean literally “bending back”), reflection is a spiritual act that runs counter to the natural process… It should, therefore, be understood as an act of becoming conscious.
