Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

1749 - 1832

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on anticipation, desires, future, imagination, passion, reality, and secrets

Our desires presage the capacities within us; they are harbingers of what we shall be able to accomplish. What we can do and want to do is projected in our imagination, quite outside ourselves, and into the future. We are attracted to what is already ours in secret. Thus passionate anticipation transforms what is indeed possible into dreamt-for reality.
