    The History of the world is not the theatre of happiness. Periods of happiness are blank pages in it, for they are periods of harmony—periods when the antithesis is in abeyance.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    World history is a court of judgment.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    Animals are in possession of themselves; their soul is in possession of their body. But they have no right to their life, because they do not will it.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    Public opinion contains all kinds of falsity and truth, but it takes a great man to find the truth in it. The great man of the age is the one who can put into words the will of his age, tell his age what its will is, and accomplish it. What he does is the heart and the essence of his age, he actualizes his age. The man who lacks sense enough to despise public opinion expressed in gossip will never do anything great.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    The True is the whole. But the whole is nothing other than the essence consummating itself through its development. Of the Absolute it must be said that it is essentially a result, that only in the end is it what it truly is; and that precisely in this consists its nature, viz. to be actual, subject, the spontaneous becoming of itself.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    But what experience and history teach is this—that peoples and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
