Frederick Von Schiller > German philosopher and poet (1759-1805) 

If you want to know yourself, see how others behave; if you want to understand others, look into your own heart

Frederick Nietzsche 1844-1900 

To understand human values such as the belief in equal worth,
we need to explore not so much human psychology
as human history, society and politics

The most characteristic quality of modern man: the remarkable antithesis between an interior which fails to correspond to any exterior and an exterior which fails to correspond to any interior - an antithesis unknown to peoples of other times. Knowledge... now no longer acts as an agent for transforming the outside world but remains concealed.
