  • Providence certainly does not favor just certain individuals, but the deep wisdom of its counsel, instruction and ennoblement extends to all.


  • I am more and more convinced that our happiness or our unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet the events of life than on the nature of those events themselves.

"As quoted in Lightning Fast Enlightenment: A Journey to the Secrets of Happiness (2000) by Jordan S. Metzger, p. 9"

The author Jordan Metzger cannot provide the source of this quote, in fact no one could so far and it´s just copied wildly on the internet, but cannot be found in Humboldt´s oeuvre. I suggest to just delete such nonsense...
