Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
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.
Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe — quotes and aphorisms
Divide and rule, the politician cries; unite and lead, is watchword of the wise.
The man with insight enough to admit his limitations comes nearest to perfection.
There is nothing in the world more shameful than establishing one's self on lies and fables.
There is a courtesy of the heart; it is allied to love. From its springs the purest courtesy in the outward behavior.
All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green.
