A Quote by Immanuel Kant on enlightenment, courage, self, self-awareness, and self-esteem

Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed nonage. Nonage is the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one's own mind without another's guidance. Dare to know!

Immanuel Kant (1724 - 1804)
