Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742–1799)
 
Lichtenberg, Georg Christoph (liċht'en-berG). A distinguished German satirical writer and physicist; born near Darmstadt, July 1, 1742; died at Göttingen, Feb. 24, 1799. The best of his satires are those on the notorious literary pirate Tobias Göbhard; the essay on ‘The German Novel’; ‘Timorus,’ ridiculing Lavater’s zeal for proselytizing; and ‘Pronunciation of the Wethers of Ancient Greece,’ aimed at Voss’s system of pronouncing Greek. His brilliant sayings have been collected and published in a separate volume, ‘Lichtenberg’s Thoughts and Maxims: Light Rays from his Works’ (1871).
