• Philosophy is really nostalgia, the desire to be at home

    Novalis
  • Life must not be a novel that is given to us, but one that is made by us

    Novalis
  • Sometimes with the most intense pain a paralysis of sensibility occurs. The soul disintegrates--hence the deadly frost--the free power of the mind--the shattering, ceaseless wit of this kind of despair. There is no inclination for anything any more--the person is alone, like a baleful power--as he has no connection with the rest of the world he consumes himself gradually--and in accordance with his own principle he is--misanthropic and misotheos

    Novalis
  • Novels arise out of the shortcomings of history

    Novalis
  • Man has his being in truth--if he sacrifices truth he sacrifices himself. Whoever betrays truth betrays himself. It is not a question of lying--but of acting against one's conviction

    Novalis
