True hope is based on energy of character. A strong mind always hopes!!

— Karl Ludwig von Knebel

The most surprising Karl Ludwig von Knebel quotes to discover and learn by heart

He who can take advice is sometimes superior to him who can give it.


Hope awakens courage. He who can implant courage in the human soul is the best physician.


Sceptics are generally ready to believe anything, provided it is sufficiently improbable.


True hope is based on the energy of character.

A strong mind always hopes, and has always cause to hope, because it knows the mutability of human affairs, and how slight a circumstance may change the whole course of events. Such a spirit, too, rests upon itself; it is not confined to partial views or to one particular object. And if at last all should be lost, it has saved itself.


The sceptic only stumbles at matter of fact.
