Famous quotes containing the words german and/or east:

    The German language “speaks Being,” while all the others merely “speak of Being.”
    Martin Heidegger (1889–1976)

    The majority of the men of the North, and of the South and East and West, are not men of principle. If they vote, they do not send men to Congress on errands of humanity; but while their brothers and sisters are being scourged and hung for loving liberty,... it is the mismanagement of wood and iron and stone and gold which concerns them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
