I am myself by inclination a seeker after truth. I feel a consuming thirst for knowledge and an eager restlessness to advance in it, as well as satisfaction in every acquisition. There was a time when I believed that this alone could constitute the honor of mankind, and I despised the rabble who know nothing. Rousseau set me right. This blind preference disappeared; I learned to respect men, and I would find myself far more useless than the common worker if I did not believe that this consideration could confer value to all others to establish the rights of mankind. – Immanuel Kant, Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and Sublime
