Franz Grillparzer
Die Irreligiösen sind religiöser als sie selbst wissen, und die Religiösen sind's weniger, als sie meinen.
Grillparzer quotes
I'd wish the government took honest people into consideration, it shows enough consideration for scoundrels.
Let the famous not denounce fame. Far from being empty and meaningless, it fills those it touches with divine power.

Grillparzer Franz quotes
I love the pride whose measure is its own eminence and not the insignificance of someone else.
Grillparzer Franz
When mundane, lowly activities are at stake, too much insight is detrimental—far-sightedness errs in immediate concerns.
