Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
He only earns his freedom and his life Who takes them every day by storm.
The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything.
If you modestly enjoy your fame you are not unworthy to rank with the holy.
Letters are among the most significant memorial a person can leave behind them.
In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm. In the real world all rests on perseverance.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe — quotes and aphorisms
In nature we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it and over it.
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.
Devote each day to the object then in time and every evening will find something done.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
