"I would suggest to remain faithful to the principle of eye-witnessing and to take a look at the portraits of the most important Germans of past centuries, monarchs, warriors, statesmen, scholars, heroes of the faith, artists, inventors without a doubt: all men, who have worked on Germany's greatness, belong to the upper group. And not they alone, but also the majority by far of the entire German people of today namely, when we examine, to that extent, the primal source of this people, i.e. the peasantry belongs to the family of the straight-looking, bold and bright-eyed men!"

I've been trying to get my hands on HSCh's The Origins of the 19th Century for years now (both universities where I studied had copies but I never had the time to read it :( ). I have a copy of de Gobineau's Essay on the Inequality of Human Races, though. In a beautiful French edition, too.
