FRIEDRICH O. KLOPSTOCK
German poet
(1724 - 1803)

Deeds of lowly virtue fade before the glare of lofty ostentation.
      - [Ostentation]

God and I both knew what it meant once; now God alone knows.
      - in C. Lombroso's "The Man of Genius", pt. I, ch. 2 (1891)
        [Forgetfulness]

He who has no opinion of his own, but depends upon the opinion and taste of others, is a slave.
      - [Opinion]

O Thou, above all gods supreme! who broughtest the world out of darkness, and gavest man a heart to feel! By whatsoever name Thou art addressed--God, Father, or Jehovah; the God of Romulus or of Abraham--not the God of one man, but the Father and Judge of all!
      - [God]

Solitude holds a cup sparkling with bliss in her right hand, a raging dagger in her left. To the blest she offers her goblet, but stretches towards the wretched the ruthless steel.
      - [Solitude]

The tones of human voices mightier than strings or brass to move the soul.
      - [Voice]

Thought on thought pressed o'er his soul, like those ocean waves, which tore thee, distant America, from the three continents.
      - [Thought]
