### Famous quotes containing the word relation:

“In *relation* to God, we are like a thief who has burgled the house of a kindly householder and been allowed to keep some of the gold. From the point of view of the lawful owner this gold is a gift; From the point of view of the burglar it is a theft. He must go and give it back. It is the same with our existence. We have stolen a little of God’s being to make it ours. God has made us a gift of it. But we have stolen it. We must return it.”

—Simone Weil (1909–1943)

“It would be disingenuous, however, not to point out that some things are considered as morally certain, that is, as having sufficient certainty for application to ordinary life, even though they may be uncertain in *relation* to the absolute power of God.”

—René Descartes (1596–1650)

“When needs and means become abstract in quality, abstraction is also a character of the reciprocal *relation* of individuals to one another. This abstract character, universality, is the character of being recognized and is the moment which makes concrete, i.e. social, the isolated and abstract needs and their ways and means of satisfaction.”

—Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
