Except by name, Jean Paul Friedrich Richter is little known out of Germany. The only thing connected with him, we think, that has reached this country is his saying, imported by Madame de Staël, and thankfully pocketed by most newspaper critics, "Providence has given to the French the empire of the land; to the English that of the sea; to the Germans that of the air!"
Der Sieger wird immer der Richter und der Besiegte stets der Angeklagte sein. The victor will always be the judge, and the vanquished the accused.hermann göring
Der eitle, schwache Mensch sieht in Jedem einen Richter, der stolze, starke hat keinen Richter als sich selbst.marie von ebner-eschenbach
Great women scholars like Jane Harrison and Gisela Richter were produced by the intellectual discipline of the masculine classical tradition, not the wishy-washy sentimentalism of clingy, all-forgiving sisterhood, from which no first-rate book has yet emerged. Every year, feminists provide more and more evidence for the old charge that women can neither think nor write.camille paglia
