Famous quotes containing the word wilhelm:

    The sensual and spiritual are linked together by a mysterious bond, sensed by our emotions, though hidden from our eyes. To this double nature of the visible and invisible world—to the profound longing for the latter, coupled with the feeling of the sweet necessity for the former, we owe all sound and logical systems of philosophy, truly based on the immutable principles of our nature, just as from the same source arise the most senseless enthusiasms.
    —Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)

    Possession, it is true, crowns exertion with rest; but it is only in the illusions of fancy that it has power to charm us.
    —Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)

    Once the state has been founded, there can no longer be any heroes. They come on the scene only in uncivilized conditions.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
