Novalis – the Power of Realization



Unser sämtliches Wahrnehmungsvermögen gleicht dem Auge. Ganz begreifen werden wir uns nie, aber wir werden und können uns weit mehr als begreifen.

Our ability to perceive is like the eye. We will never fully grasp ourselves but what we can and will do goes far beyond simply grasping.

–Friedrich Freiherr von Hardenberg (Novalis), Blüthenstaub-Fragment (1789).
