Friedrich Engels virkar eins og hann hafi verið fáránlega skemmtilegur gaur:
Engels is commonly known as a "ruthless party tactician", "brutal ideologue", and "master tactician" when it came to purging rivals in political organizations.
However, another strand of Engels’s personality was one of a "gregarious", "bighearted", and "jovial man of outsize appetites", who was referred to by his son-in-law as "the great beheader of champagne bottles." His interests included poetry, fox hunting, and he hosted regular Sunday parties for London’s left-wing intelligentsia where as one regular put it, "no one left before 2 or 3 in the morning." His stated personal motto was "take it easy", while "jollity" was listed as his favorite virtue.
Hljómar eins og maður að mínu skapi.
Hann virðist líka hafa verið samkvæmur sjálfum sér, því skeggið hans er klárlega svona fjórum númerum of stórt.
Í alvörunni talað. Ekki einu sinni Nietzsche á break í þetta.
