We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

Men show their character in nothing more clearly than by what they think laughable.
Choose well, your choice is brief, and yet endless.
A clever man commits no minor blunders.
Commonplaceness, the surrender to the average, that good which is not bad but still the enemy of the best - That is our besetting danger.
No one would talk much in society, if he knew how often he misunderstands others.
Beware of dissipating your powers; strive constantly to concentrate them. Genius thinks it can do whatever it sees others doing, but it is sure to repent of every ill-judged outlay.
You must either conquer and rule or lose and serve, suffer or triumph, and be the anvil or the hammer.

Where there is much light, the shadow is deep.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
