Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why go you about to kill me?…
A traveller showed Lavater two portraits — the one a highwayman who had been broken upon the wheel, the other was a portrait of Kant the philosopher. He was desired to distinguish between them. Lavater took up the portrait of the highwayman, and, after attentively considering it for some time, "Here," said he, "we have the true philosopher. Here is penetration in the eye and reflection in the forehead; here is cause, and there is effect; here is combination, there is distinction; synthetic lips and analytic nose." Then, turning to the portrait of the philosopher, he exclaimed, "The calm-thinking villain is so well expressed and so strongly marked in this countenance that it needs no comment." This anecdote Kant used to tell with great glee.
