August Wilhelm Schlegel Quotes

  • ''Egotism erects its center in itself; love places it out of itself in the axis of the universal whole. Love aims at unity, egotism at solitude. Love is the citizen ruler of a flourishing republic, egotism is a despot in a devastated creation.''
    Wilhelm Schlegel (1767-1845), German poet. Philosophical Letters, no. IV.
