Johann Herder

German cultural historian
So says the most ancient book of the Earth; thus it is written on its leaves of marble, lime, sand, slate, and clay: ... that our Earth has fashioned itself, from its chaos of substances and powers, through the animating warmth of the creative spirit, to a peculiar and original whole, by a series of preparatory revolutions, till at last the crown of its creation, the exquisite and tender creature man, was enabled to appear.More Johann Herder quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Say oh wise man how you have come to such knowledge? Because I was never ashamed to confess my ignorance and ask others.More Johann Herder quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is a hard but good law of fate, that as every evil, so every excessive power, wears itself out.More Johann Herder quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Calmly take what ill betideth; Patience wins the crown at length: Rich repayment him abideth Who endures in quiet strength. Brave the tamer of the lion; Brave whom conquered kingdoms praise; Bravest he who rules his passions, Who his own impatience sways.More Johann Herder quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Touch not the flute when drums are sounding around; when fools have the word, the wise will be silent.More Johann Herder quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
