Answer to yesterday’s William Lawrence Sr Cryptowit quote puzzle: Do not smile at my advice — the advice of a dreamer who warns you against Kantians, Fichteans, and philosophers of nature. Do not smile at the visionary who anticipates the same revolution in the realm of the visible as has taken place in the spiritual. Thought precedes action as lightning precedes thunder. German thunder is of true Germanic character; it is not very nimble, but rumbles along ponderously. . . . A play will be performed in Germany which will make the French Revolution look like an innocent idyll.
Heinrich Heine (1834)
