Dienos citata

"To contemplate a person as an ideal is to submit to his authority. The admirer of
Napoleon does not judge him by independent previously established standards,
but accepts, on the contrary, the figure of Napoleon as a standard for judging
himself. Such an admirer may be mistaken in the choice of his hero, but his
relation to greatness is correct. We need reverence to perceive greatness, even as
we need a telescope to observe spiral nebulae."
Michael Polanyi, 1959
