Alexander von Humboldt was a Prussian geographer, naturalist, explorer, and influential proponent of Romantic philosophy and science. “There are three stages of scientific discovery: first people deny it is true; then they deny it is important; finally they credit the wrong person.” “The most dangerous worldview is the worldview of those who have not viewed the world.” “I am more and more convinced that our happiness or unhappiness depends more on the way we meet the events of life than on the nature of those events themselves.” With most animals, as with man, the alertness of the senses diminishes after years of work, after domestic habits and progress of culture.” “Nature can be so soothing to the tormented mind” “Insight into universal nature provides an intellectual delight and sense of freedom that no blows of fate and no evil can destroy.” “I saw with regret, (and all scientific men have shared this feeling) that whilst the number of accurate instruments was daily increasing, we were still ignorant” “The philosophical study of nature endeavors, in the the vicissitudes of phenomena, to connect the present with the past.” “The expression of vanity and self-love becomes less offensive, when it retains something of simplicity and frankness.” “Our imagination is struck only by what is great; but the lover of natural philosophy should reflect equally on little things.” Thank you so much for watching.. please SUBSCRIBE for Latest Inspirational videos.
