Famous quotes containing the word wilhelm:
“Whatever does not spring from a mans 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 (17671835)
