Memorial address for Carl Mayer (1795–1868)

given on the 25th June 1868 by Rudolph Virchow


Where much is learnt, much is also forgotten! That is a principle of experience which is as valid for individuals as for people en masse. Ever-increasing knowledge reveals new connections to our way of thinking; progress leads to new points of view; our yardsticks for judgment alter; and much which seemed significant becomes smaller and smaller, so that it finally disappears from sight. Much that was once little heeded looms ever larger the more it becomes the object of our contemplation.Thus change our evaluations of things and people.
