Favorite Kirch Quotes

1. "How did Kirchmann understand the worthlessness of jurisprudence ? The answer lies in the aphorism: "Three revisions by the legislator and whole libraries became wastepaper." With a sharp alteration this answer became a slogan:"A stroke of the legislator's pen and whole libraries became wastepaper." Another aphorism in the same vein made the point even more brusquely and less politely: "Positive law turns the jurist into a worm in rotten wood." Kirchmann meant that jurisprudence could never catch up with legislation. Thus our predicament becomes immediately obvious. What remains of a science reduced to annotating and interpreting constantly changing regulations issued by state agencies presumed to be in the best position to know and articulate their true intent?"
Author: Carl Schmitt
2. "Armee, Ehe, Kirche und Bankwesen: die vier apokalyptischen Reiter."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
3. "In moments they would be here — the ones Kircher had called the Cenobites, theologians of the Order of the Gash. Summoned from their experiments in the higher reaches of pleasure, to bring their ageless heads into a world of rain and failure."
Author: Clive Barker
4. "Kein Kindergarten, keine Schule, kein Krankenhaus, kein Altenheim in Trägerschaft der christlichen Kirchen und ihrer Wohlfahrtsverbände wird zum Hauptteil aus der Kirchensteuer finanziert. Stattdessen zahlt die Allgemeinheit und damit auch all diejenigen, die nicht Mitglied einer Kirche sind."
Author: Eva Müller
5. "Look here, I have succeeded at last in fetching some gold from the sun.{After his banker questioned the value of investigating gold in the Fraunhofer lines of the sun and Kirchhoff handing him over a medal he was awarded for his investigations.}"
Author: Fraunhofer
6. "At the moment I am occupied by an investigation with Kirchhoff which does not allow us to sleep. Kirchhoff has made a totally unexpected discovery, inasmuch as he has found out the cause for the dark lines in the solar spectrum and can produce these lines artificially intensified both in the solar spectrum and in the continuous spectrum of a flame, their position being identical with that of Fraunhofer's lines. Hence the path is opened for the determination of the chemical composition of the Sun and the fixed stars."
Author: Kirchhoff
7. "Ebenso hilft es der Seele nichts, wenn der Leib heilige Kleider anlegt, wie's die Priester und Geistlichen tun, auch nicht, wenn er sich in Kirchen und heiligen Stätten befindet; auch nicht, wenn er sich mit heiligen Dingen befaßt; auch nicht, wenn er leiblich betet, fastet, wallfahrtet und alle guten Werke tut, die in alle Ewigkeit durch und in dem Leib geschehen können. Es muß allemal noch etwas anderes sein, was der Seele Rechtschaffenheit und Freiheit bringen und geben kann. Denn alle diese genannten Dinge, Werke und Weisen kann auch ein böser Mensch, ein Gleißner und Heuchler an sich haben und ausüben, und durch so etwas entsteht auch kein anderes Volk als lauter Gleißner."
Author: Martin Luther
8. "Als Christin hatte sie sich zugehörig gefühlt. Nach ihrem Austritt aus der Kirche war sie unendlich frei gewesen, aber auch ohne Halt in einem Universum ohne Zweck."
Author: Philip Pullman
9. "Before an experiment can be performed, it must be planned—the question to nature must be formulated before being posed. Before the result of a measurement can be used, it must be interpreted—nature's answer must be understood properly. These two tasks are those of the theorist, who finds himself always more and more dependent on the tools of abstract mathematics. Of course, this does not mean that the experimenter does not also engage in theoretical deliberations. The foremost classical example of a major achievement produced by such a division of labor is the creation of spectrum analysis by the joint efforts of Robert Bunsen, the experimenter, and Gustav Kirchhoff, the theorist. Since then, spectrum analysis has been continually developing and bearing ever richer fruit."
Author: Robert Bunsen
10. "Un déplacement en Argentine, début décembre, pour représenter la France à l'investiture de Cristina Kirchner, m'a permis, par contraste, de mesurer l'anémie de notre militantisme. Là-bas, le parti au pouvoir compte trois millions d'adhérents, à rapporter aux quarante millions d'Argentins.En France, où nous sommes soixante-cinq millions, l'UMP peine à afficher deux cent mille militants ! Et encore, le chiffre mériterait d'être vérifié."
Author: Roselyne Bachelot
11. "The father of Egyptology was Father Athanasius Kircher."
Author: Thomas E. Woods Jr.
