Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of another, always at the same time as an end and never simply as a means.[Also known as:]Always recognize that human individuals are ends, and do not use them as means to your end.[Handle so, dass du die Menschheit sowohl in deiner Person, als in der Person eines jeden andern jederzeit zugleich als Zweck, niemals bloß als Mittel brauchst. ]
A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing. And when Humanity lands there, it looks out, and, seeing a better country, sets sail. Progress is the realisation of Utopias.
