Ludwig Borne

was a German political writer and satirist.
History teaches us virtue, but nature never ceases to teachh us vice.More Ludwig Borne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be original you must listen to the voice of your heart rather than the clamor of the world - and have the courage to teach publicly what you have learned. The source of all genius is sincerity; men would be wiser if they were more moral.More Ludwig Borne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nothing endures except change; nothing is constant except death. Every heartbeat wounds us, and life would be an eternal bleeding to death, were it not for literature. It grants us what nature does not: a golden time that doesn't rust, a springtime that never wilts, cloudless happiness and eternal youth.
