THOUGHT for the DAY.

OBSTACLES are necessary companions to expression, and we know that the positive element in language is not in its obstructiveness.

Exclusively viewed from the side of the obstacle, nature appears inimical to the idea of morality. But, if that were absolutely true, moral life could never come to exist.

Life, moral or physical, is not a completed fact, but a continual process, depending for its movement upon two contrary forces, the force of resistance and that of expression.

Dividing these forces into two mutually opposing principles does not help us, for the truth dwells not in the opposition but in its continual reconciliation.
