Famous quotes containing the word german:

    The German mind, may it live! Almost invisible as a mind, it finally manifests itself assertively as a conviction.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    A German immersed in any civilization different from his own loses a weight equivalent in volume to the amount of intelligence he displaces.
    José Bergamín (1895–1983)

    That nameless and infinitely delicate aroma of inexpressible tenderness and attentiveness which, in every refined and honorable attachment, is contemporary with the courtship, and precedes the final banns and the rite; but which, like the bouquet of the costliest German wines, too often evaporates upon pouring love out to drink, in the disenchanting glasses of the matrimonial days and nights.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
