Famous quotes containing the words wilhelm and/or friedrich:

    The history of the world is none other than the progress of the consciousness of freedom.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    But the life of Spirit is not the life that shrinks from death and keeps itself untouched by devastation, but rather the life that endures it and maintains itself in it. It wins its truth only when, in utter dismemberment, it finds itself.... Spirit is this power only by looking the negative in the face, and tarrying with it. This tarrying with the negative is the magical power that converts it into being. This power is identical with what we earlier called the Subject.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
