Here or henceforward it is all the same to me, I accept Time absolutely.
The man who is aware of himself is henceforward independent;
and he is never bored, and life is only too short, and he is steeped through and through with a profound yet temperate happiness.
Is evolution a theory, a system, or an hypothesis? It is much more: it is a general condition to which all theories, all hypotheses, all systems must bow and which they must satisfy henceforward if they are to be thinkable and true.
