Collage 376

There are two sides to each man's life: his personal life, which is the more free the more abstract its interests, and his elemental, swarmlike life, where man inevitably fulfills the laws prescribed for him...
Kings are the slaves of history...
History, that is, the unconscious, swarmlike life of mankind, uses every moment of a king's life as an instrument for its purposes. --p. 605 in P/V
