Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

German scientist, satirist and Anglophile.
One cannot demand of a scholar that he show himself a scholar everywhere in society, but the whole tenor of his behavior must none the less betray the thinker, he must always be instructive, his way of judging a thing must even in the smallest matters be such that people can see what it will amount to when, quietly and self-collected, he puts this power to scholarly use. Georg Christoph Lichtenberg quotes
