Famous quotes containing the words deed of, conveyance and/or deed:
“The sole work and deed of universal freedom is therefore death, a death too which has no inner significance or filling, for what is negated is the empty point of the absolutely free self. It is thus the coldest and meanest of all deaths, with no more significance than cutting off a head of cabbage or swallowing a mouthful of water.”
—Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (17701831)
“Writing [for the novelist] is not an activity, but a condition. That is why one simply cant resume the work when one has a job and a free half-day. Reading is the conveyance of this condition.”
—Robert Musil (18801942)
“Macbeth. How now, you secret, black, and midnight hags?
What ist you do?
Witches. A deed without a name.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
