[Philosopher, b. 1788, Danzig, Poland, d. 1860, Frankfurt, Germany.]
Every man takes the limit of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.
That the outer man is a picture of the inner, and the face a revelation of the whole character, is a presumption likely enough in itself, and therefore a safe one to go by; borne out as it is by the fact that people are always anxious to see anyone who has made himself famous by good or evil... photography, on that account of such high value, affords the most complete satisfaction of our curiosity. (1850)
