Quotation by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

It follows that man has his actual substantive life in the state, in learning, and so forth, as well as in labor and struggle with the external world and with himself so that it is only out of his diremption that he fights his way to self-subsistent unity with himself. In the family he has a tranquil intuition of this unity, and there he lives a subjective ethical life on the plane of feeling. Woman, on the other hand, has her substantive destiny in the family, and to be imbued with family piety is her ethical frame of mind.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831), German philosopher. Philosophy of Right, part 3: "Ethical Life," par. 166, p. 114, Oxford University Press (1952).
