    This book was very...interesting. It is written in small "fragments" which are usually only a few sentences long. Novalis would have loved social media; this book almost reads like a twitter feed from the 18th-century. Some of these philosophical fragments were nonsense (particularly the ones in relation to religion; they read as both transcendental and universalist) but many of them were intriguing or just plain good. A few of Novalis' poems were also included in this book. I didn't see anything This book was very...interesting. It is written in small "fragments" which are usually only a few sentences long. Novalis would have loved social media; this book almost reads like a twitter feed from the 18th-century. Some of these philosophical fragments were nonsense (particularly the ones in relation to religion; they read as both transcendental and universalist) but many of them were intriguing or just plain good. A few of Novalis' poems were also included in this book. I didn't see anything remarkable about them. Fragments that caught my eye: 127: When one reads correctly, there unfolds then in our interior a real, visible world according to the words. 129: The lives of cultured people should alternate between music and non-music, as between sleep and waking. 133: The lyric poem is for heroes; it makes heroes. The epic poem is for humanity. The hero is lyric, the human is epic, the genius is dramatic. Man is epic, woman is lyric, marriage is dramatic. 142: ...The artist belongs to the work and not the work to the artist. 143: In the essential sense, philosophizing is--a caress-a testimony to the inner love of reflection, the absolute delight of wisdom. 157: The greatest good endures in the imagination. 197: The smaller and slower one begins--the more perfect the result--and this is true everywhere. The more one can do with a few--the more one can do with many. When one understands how to love one--then one understands even better how to love all. 199: Every thinking man will of course find Truth--he may then proceed where and go just as he will. 216: To learn something is a very beautiful pleasure--and to know something real is the source of that delightfulness. 288: As only the eye sees eyes, so understanding is only known through understanding--the soul through the soul--intelligence through intelligence--spirit through spirit--and so forth--imagination only through imagination--the senses only through the senses--and God can only be known to God. 233: Many a deed haunts you forever. 312: Just as Copernicus did, so all good researchers--physicians and observers and thinkers do--must do: turn the data and the method about, in order to see whether it wouldn't fit better that way. 331: Philosophy can bake no bread--but it can secure us with God, freedom, and immortality--which is only practical. Philosophy or economy?

    Novalis' anspruchsvilme Gedankengänge sind manchmal schwer nachzuvollziehen. Vieles musste ich zwei oder dreimal Lesen. Aber wenn man sich näher mit den Aphorismen von Novalis oder auch Schlegel befasst, merkt man, dass es sich bei den Romantikern nicht nur um einen Haufen Schreibender, sondern um eine politische Gruppe handelt, die die Literatur geschickt zur Verbreitung ihres Programmes nutzt.
