Famous quotes containing the word humboldt:

    If we glance at the most important revolutions in history, we see at once that the greatest number of these originated in the periodical revolutions of the human mind.
    —Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)

    Freedom is but the possibility of a various and indefinite activity; while government, or the exercise of dominion, is a single, yet real activity. The longing for freedom, therefore, is at first only too frequently suggested by the deep-felt consciousness of its absence.
    —Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)

    Whatever does not spring from a man’s free choice, or is only the result of instruction and guidance, does not enter into his very being, but still remains alien to his true nature; he does not perform it with truly human energies, but merely with mechanical exactness.
    —Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)
