Von Pettenkofer

Famous quotes containing the word von:

    Self-alienation is the source of all degradation as well as, on the contrary, the basis of all true elevation. The first step will be a look inward, an isolating contemplation of our self. Whoever remains standing here proceeds only halfway. The second step must be an active look outward, an autonomous, determined observation of the outer world.
    Novalis [Friedrich Von Hardenberg] (1772–1801)
