Wilhelm von Humboldt

  • For even if we know very little that is certain about spirit or soul, the true nature of the body, of materiality, is totally unknown and incomprehensible to us

    Wilhelm von Humboldt
  • Happiness is so nonsynonymous with joy or pleasure that it is not infrequently sought and felt in grief and deprivation

    Wilhelm von Humboldt
  • Faith can be interested in results only, for a truth once recognized as such puts an end to the believer's thinking

    Wilhelm von Humboldt
  • If something possesses no capacity for activity whatever, it is nothing; it may be wholly penetrated, but it cannot be touched. Therefore passivity and reaction are everywhere equal
