Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

"When Hegel walked into the lecture hall, the, the rumble of conversation abruptly stopped, and it became so quiet that people described it with the cliche that 'one could hear a pin drop.' As one of his Polish hearers described him, Hegel, with his pale white face, clumsily waving his hands as he spoke - often with his eyes closed - seemed like a 'phenomenon from another world.'"

- Terry Pincard, "Hegel: A Biography", p. 611-2
