    Navarette, a Chinese missionary, agrees with Leibniz and says that “It is the special providence of God that the Chinese did not know what was done in Christendom; for if they did, there would be never a man among them, but would spit in our faces.”
    Matthew Tindal (1653–1733)

    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
