Johann Gottlieb Fichte — German Philosopher born on May 19, 1762, died on January 27, 1814

Johann Gottlieb Fichte, a German philosopher, became a founding figure of the philosophical movement known as German idealism, which developed from the theoretical and ethical writings of Immanuel Kant. Recently, philosophers and scholars have begun to appreciate Fichte as an important philosopher in his own right due to his original insights into the nature of self-consciousness or self-awareness. Fichte was also the originator of thesis–antithesis–synthesis, an idea that is often erroneously attributed to Hegel. Like Descartes and Kant before him, he was motivated by the problem of subjectivity and consciousness. Fichte also wrote works of political philosophy; he has a reputation as one of the fathers of German nationalism... (wikipedia)

He who is firm in will molds the world to himself.
A man can do what he ought to do; and when he says he cannot, it is because he will not.
Only one man ever understood me, and he didn't understand me.
