Friedrich Schlegel

All men are somewhat ridiculous and grotesque; just because they are men; and in this respect, artists might well be regarded as man multiplied by two. So it is, was, and shall be.

A critic is a reader who ruminates. Thus, he should have more than one stomach.

Genius is, to be sure, not a matter of arbitariness, but rather of freedom, just as wit, love, and faith, which once shall become arts and disciplines. We should demand genius from everybody, without, however, expecting it.

Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.

It is peculiar to mankind to transcend mankind.

What is called good society is usually nothing but a mosaic of polished caricatures.

Good drama must be drastic.

Virtue is reason which has become energy.
