Quotes from Engels

“Nature exists independently of all philosophies. It is the foundation upon which we, ourselves products of nature are built. Outside man and nature nothing exists, and the higher beings which our religious phantasies have created are only the fantastic reflections of our individuality.”
F. Engels.

“Men make their own history in that each follows his own desired ends independent of results, and the results of these many wills acting in different directions and their manifold effects upon the world constitute history. It depends, therefore, upon what the great majority of individuals intend.” —F. Engels’ ” Feurbach.”

(Socialist Standard, December 1924)
