Hegel

Famous quotes containing the word hegel:

    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 Few assume to be the deputies, but they are often only the despoilers of the Many.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    To him who looks upon the world rationally, the world in its turn presents a rational aspect. The relation is mutual.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
