Example text

The Two Essays by H. H. ―there we have the apostle. Nonetheless, no hum. being has the right to do so―there we have the genius. Authority is exactly what is required, but the genius has no authority. The Conclusion of the First of the Two Essays was included, but it was so�ened so that the humoristic part and the double reflection with which the auth. of the piece distances himself from it, were removed. It’s now mild and simple. For a moment, I considered adding: If he had lived in 48, he would have understood clearly thata “awakening” isn’t exactly what’s [a] or as it is called in the second essay, a specific qualitative difference.

But we also find truth in the others [who were healed]; for it was dangerous to spread words of praise. If those who’d been healed (9 of the lepers for whom this was the case, for example) had been cowardly and prudent, they would have said: The Lord himself forbids it―ergo we’ll remain silent, for that’s his will, a�er all. Such collisions still frequently happen in life. It might be someone’s duty, in the denial of self-interest, to remain silent―but it doesn’t follow that it isn’t contemptible to take advantage of it, claiming that it’s his will.

That is just as insane as the person who decided to get married at the same moment, the very same moment, that his house was on fire. ] Now, when what we really need are martyrs, thousands of them if possible, the real rescue crew. I’ve been afraid of aiming too high, and then doing damage later on because I was unable live up to it. But that’s melancholia. I can handle the mistreatment, even more mistreatment―and I don’t need anything more than that, either. How easy it would have been if I, too, had just thrown myself into the same disgusting rut by just taking care of myself, by living in respectable obscurity―truly a respectable obscurity when one disrespectfully uses obscurity to avoid dangers.
