„There is no need to make an inventory of the times. It is demoralizing to describe ourselves to ourselves yet again.“

Contexto: There is no need to make an inventory of the times. It is demoralizing to describe ourselves to ourselves yet again. It is especially hard on us since we believe (as we have been educated to believe) that history has formed us and that we are all mini-summaries of the present age.
