Memorial speech for Johann Lucas Schönlein (1793–1864)

given in the Great Hall of the University of Berlin on the 23rd January 1865 — the first anniversary of his death


We are gathered here to renew in ourselves the memory of the dear man, who, faraway from us, departed this life a year ago. We who were not able to accord our last respects to his mortal remains wish today in solemn memory, to pay that tribute of honour to his spirit with which our hearts are full. Not the honour which his high position in the State would allow him to claim; nor that which his decorations and offices already indicate, but the honour which is appropriate to the man himself — that honour which he won by work, achievement and character.
