Edith Hamilton
b. 8-12-1867; Dresden, Germany (raised in Fort Wayne, IN)
d. 5-31-1963; Washington, DC

Edith Hamilton quotes ~
• “To be able to be caught up into the world of thought – that is educated.”
• “Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active.”
• “There are few efforts more conducive to humility than that of the translator trying to communicate an incommunicable beauty. Yet, unless we do try, something unique and never surpassed will cease to exist except in the libraries of a few inquisitive book lovers.”
• “Great art is the expression of a solution of the conflict between the demands of the world without and that within.”
• “When the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.”

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
b. 8-27-1770; Stuttgart, Württemberg, Germany
d. 11-14-1831; Berlin

Hegel best remembered as a philosopher, who put forth a historicist and idealist account of reality which was an important precursor to Continental philosophy and Marxism. His comprehensive philosophical framework, or “system”, integrated mind and nature, the subject and object of knowledge, and psychology, the state, history, art, religion and philosophy.

Hegel quotes ~
• “Education is the art of making man ethical.”
• “Mark this well, you proud men of action! you are, after all, nothing but unconscious instruments of the men of thought.”
• “The history of the world is none other than the progress of the consciousness of freedom.”
• “History, is a conscious, self-meditating process — Spirit emptied out into Time.”
• “What experience and history teach is this — that nations and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted upon any lessons they might have drawn from it.”

Herodotus is considered the “Father of History” and considered the first writer to “collect his materials systematically, test their accuracy to a certain extent and arrange them in a well-constructed and vivid narrative.” He self proclaimed he wished “to preserve the memory of the past by putting on record the astonishing achievements both of our own and of other peoples; and more particularly, to show how they came into conflict.”

“Concerning Egypt I will now speak at length, because nowhere are there so many marvelous things, nor in the whole world beside are there to be seen so many works of unspeakable greatness.”

David Hume, Scottish philosopher, economist, and historian, is considered one of the most important figures in the history of Western philosophy.

David Hume quotes ~
• “A propensity to hope and joy is real riches; one to fear and sorrow real poverty.”
• “The life of man is of no greater importance to the universe than that of an oyster.”
• “Everything in the world is purchased by labor.”
• “Generally speaking, the errors in religion are dangerous; those in philosophy only ridiculous.”
• “Be a philosopher but, amid all your philosophy be still a man.”
• “Beauty is no quality in things themselves: it exists merely in the mind which contemplates them.”
• “Morals excite passions, and produce or prevent actions. Reason of itself is utterly impotent in this particular. The rules of morality, therefore, are not conclusions of our reason.”
