„Bravest he who rules his passions,
Who his own impatience sways.“

—  Johann Gottfried Herder
Context: Calmly take what ill betideth; Patience wins the crown at length: Rich repayment him abideth Who endures in quiet strength. Brave the tamer of the lion; Brave whom conquered kingdoms praise; Bravest he who rules his passions, Who his own impatience sways.

„How transitory all human structures are, nay how oppressive the best institutions become in the course of a few generations.“

—  Johann Gottfried Herder
Context: How transitory all human structures are, nay how oppressive the best institutions become in the course of a few generations. The plant blossoms, and fades: your fathers have died, and mouldered into dust: your temple is fallen: your tabernacle, the tables of your law, are no more: language itself, that bond of mankind, becomes antiquated: and shall a political constitution, shall a system of government or religion, that can be erected solely on these, endure for ever? Vol. 2, p. 79; translation vol. 2, pp. 113-14.

„A person, who reads only to print, to all probability reads amiss“

—  Johann Gottfried Herder
Context: With the greatest possible solicitude avoid authorship. Too early or immoderately employed, it makes the head waste and the heart empty; even were there no other worse consequences. A person, who reads only to print, to all probability reads amiss; and he, who sends away through the pen and the press every thought, the moment it occurs to him, will in a short time have sent all away, and will become a mere journeyman of the printing-office, a compositor.

Translation from Samuel Taylor Coleridge Biographia Literaria (London: Rest Fenner, 1817) vol. 1, ch. 11, pp. 233-34.

„Whate'er of us lives in the hearts of others
Is our truest and profoundest self.“

—  Johann Gottfried Herder
Context: Whate'er of us lives in the hearts of others Is our truest and profoundest self. "Das Selbst, ein Fragment", cited from Bernhard Suphan (ed.) Herders sämmtliche Werke (Berlin: Weidmann, 1877-1913) vol. 29, p. 142. Translation from Hans Urs von Balthasar (trans.
