Famous quotes containing the words engels and/or friedrich:

    An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.
    —Friedrich Engels (1820–1895)

    Meanwhile, if the fear of falling into error sets up a mistrust of Science, which in the absence of such scruples gets on with the work itself, and actually cognizes something, it is hard to see why we should not turn round and mistrust this very mistrust.... What calls itself fear of error reveals itself rather as fear of the truth.
    —Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
