“For faith is this paradox, that the particular is higher than the universal–yet in such a way, be it observed, that the movement repeats itself, and that consequently the individual, after having been in the universal, now as the particular isolates himself as higher than the universal. It this be not faith, then Abraham is lost, then faith has never existed in the world–because it has always existed.”
