    To be independent of public opinion is the first formal condition of achieving anything great.
    — Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
    tags: opinion 
     
    Public opinion contains all kinds of falsity and truth, but it takes a great man to find the truth in it. The great man of the age is the one who can put into words the will of his age, tell his age what its will is, and accomplish it. What he does is the heart and the essence of his age, he actualizes his age. The man who lacks sense enough to despise public opinion expressed in gossip will never do anything great.
    — Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

    The essence of the modern state is that the universal be bound up with the complete freedom of its particular members and with private well-being, that thus the interests of family and civil society must concentrate themselves on the state. It is only when both these moments subsist in their strength that the state can be regarded as articulated and genuinely organized.

    Regarding History as the slaughter-bench at which the happiness of peoples, the wisdom of States, and the virtue of individuals have been victimized-the question involuntarily arises-to what principle, to what final aim these enormous sacrifices have been offered.
    — Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
    Whatever happens, every individual is a child of his time; so philosophy too is its own time apprehended in thoughts. It is just as absurd to fancy that a philosophy can transcend its contemporary world as it is to fancy that an individual can overleap his own age, jump over Rhodes.
    — Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
    Freedom is the fundamental character of the will, as weight is of matter... That which is free is the will. Will without freedom is an empty word.
