    The Few assume to be the deputies, but they are often only the despoilers of the Many.
    —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)

    Amid the pressure of great events, a general principle gives no help.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    The history of the world is none other than the progress of the consciousness of freedom.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    History ... is, indeed, little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind.
    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)
