Quotation by Friedrich Von Schlegel

Where philosophy ends, poetry must commence. There should not be a common point of view, a natural manner of thinking which stands in contrast to art and liberal education, or mere living; that is, one should not conceive of a realm of crudeness beyond the boundaries of education. Every conscious link of an organism should not perceive its limits without a feeling for its unity in relation to the whole. For example, philosophy should not only be contrasted to non-philosophy, but also to poetry.
Friedrich Von Schlegel (1772–1829), German philosopher. Idea 48 in Selected Ideas (1799-1800), translated by Ernst Behler and Roman Struc, Dialogue on Poetry and Literary Aphorisms, Pennsylvania University Press (1968).
