Time for reflection.
[The] long time is the time-space of a concealed history. No modern thinking, indeed no metaphysics in general, suffices to experience, let alone to know this history. Because, however, our own thought and action is everywhere metaphysical, we cannot yet find our way into the historical space of this history. We ourselves must first learn something still more provisional, waiting for the favor of being able to await authentically the long time. such waiting, certainly, does not consist in the empty waiting for some stroke of fortune that will supposedly throw salvation our way, toward those of us who are entirely unprepared. Waiting for the favor of being able to await the long time is reflection. Reflection is readiness for knowing.
P. 153
