Zitate von Henri Frédéric Amiel

It gives libery and breadth to thought to learn to judge our own epoch from the point of view of universal history, history from the point of view of geological periods, geology from the point of view of astronomy. When the duration of a man's life or of a people's life appears to us as microscopic as that of a fly, and inversely the life of a gnat as infinite as that of a celestial body, with all its dust of nations, we feel ourselves at once very small, and very great; and we are able, as it were, to survey from the height of spheres our own existence and the little whirlwinds which agitate our little world.
