    Feeling and thinking are actually the blind man who carries the lame.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Whoever considers morality the main objective of human existence, seems to me like a person who defines the purpose of a clock as not going wrong. The first objective for a clock, is, however, that it does run; not going wrong is an additional regulative function. If not a watch’s greatest accomplishment were not going wrong, unwound watches might be the best.
    —Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
