Berthold Auerbach Quote – “I love all men…”

I love all men. I know that at bottom they cannot be otherwise, and under all the false and overloaded and glittering masquerade, there is, in every man, a noble nature beneath; only they cannot bring it out, and whatever they do that is false and cunning and evil, there still remains the sentence of our Great Example: “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

Berthold Auerbach (1812 – 1882)
