Gerhart Hauptmann
b. 11-15-1862; Obersalzbrunn, Silesia, Prussia

Dramatist Gerhart Hauptmann was awarded the 1912 Nobel Prize for Literature “primarily in recognition of his fruitful, varied and outstanding production in the realm of dramatic art”.

His best known work is his 1892 play, “The Weavers”, about the labor uprising of weavers in Silesia; and the 1912 novel “Atlantis” which was produced as a Danish film in 1913.

FYI - Artist Kathe Kollwitz was inspired by Hauptmann's The Weavers, to produce a cycle of etchings expressing the workers' misery, hope, courage, and, eventually, doom.

Gerhart Hauptmann quotes ~
• “Poetry evokes out of words the resonance of the primordial world.”
• “It was cryin' more than breathin' with me from the time each poor little thing come into the world till death took pity on it.” The Weavers
• “And, when one knows things of that kind as I know them now – believe me – one can find no rest. A simple little piece of soap, which makes no one else in the world think of any harm, even a pair of clean, well-cared for hands are enough to embitter one thoroughly.” Before Dawn
• “Life is too short to read bad books.”

Vaclav Havel quotes ~
• “Even a purely moral act that has no hope of any immediate and visible political effect can gradually and indirectly, over time, gain in political significance.”
• “I really do inhabit a system in which words are capable of shaking the entire structure of government, where words can prove mightier than ten military divisions.”
• “Truth and love must prevail over lies and hate.”
• “Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.”
• “Anyone who takes himself too seriously always runs the risk of looking ridiculous; anyone who can consistently laugh at himself does not.”
• “Genuine politics – even politics worthy of the name – the only politics I am willing to devote myself to – is simply a matter of serving those around us: serving the community and serving those who will come after us. Its deepest roots are moral because it is a responsibility expressed through action, to and for the whole.”
• “The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and human responsibility.”
• “Lying can never save us from another lie.”

William Hazlitt
b. 4-10-1778; Maidstone, Kent, England
d. 9-18-1830; Soho, London

Grammarian, philosopher and itinerant painter William Hazlitt wrote humanistic essays and literary criticism and is now considered one of the great critics and essayists of the English language. Hazlitt befriended many 19th-century literary people, such as Charles and Mary Lamb, Stendhal, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth.

William Hazlitt quotes ~
• “A gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles.”
• “Those who are at war with others are not at peace with themselves.”
• “We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts.”
• “A hypocrite despises those whom he deceives, but has no respect for himself. He would make a dupe of himself too, if he could.”
