The greatest difficulties lie where we are not looking for them.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

It is only in misery that we recognize the hand of God leading good men to good.
We know accurately only when we know little; with knowledge doubt increases.
Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.
They teach in academies far too many things, and far too much that is useless.
Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Deny yourself! You must deny yourself! That is the song that never ends.
A king there was once reigning, Who had a goodly flea, Him loved he without feigning, As his own son were he!

Courage and modesty are the most unequivocal of virtues, for they are of a kind that hypocrisy cannot imitate; they too have this quality in common, that they are expressed by the same color.
Rest not! Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
