Quote of the Day: Dividing Humanity

Continuing with the Prussian Virtues theme:

"The most radical division it is possible to make of humanity is that which splits it into two classes of creatures: those who make great demands on themselves, piling up difficulties and duties; and those who demand nothing special of themselves, but for whom to live is to be every moment what they already are, without imposing on themselves any effort toward perfection; mere buoys that float on the waves."

— Jose Ortega y Gasset, The Revolt of the Masses (quotation found here).
