Kant’s Tombstone in Kaliningrad

Kant’s tombstone near the cathedral of Kaliningrad (the former Prussian city of Königsberg) contains a famous passage from his Critique of Practical Reason in the original German. In English, it reads: “Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the more often and steadily we reflect upon them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.”
