Quotes by Vasile Conta

Vasile Conta (November 15, 1845 – April 21, 1882) was a Romanian philosopher, poet, and politician.

He was born in Ghindaoani, a village in Baltatesti commune, Neamt County.

The Armenian Octav Minar, an editor of Conta's works, pretended with no evidence that Conta was of Armenian ancestry. This thesis was infirmed by several scholars and by Ana Conta-Kernbach, the philosopher's sister.[citation needed]

He died in Bucharest.
