On the pinnacle of success man does not stand firm long.
Superstition is the poetry of life.

A really great talent finds its happiness in execution.
Talent develops in tranquillity, character in the full current of human life.
Everything is simpler than you think and at the same time more complex than you can imagine.
There is repetition everywhere, and nothing is found only once in the world.
Who longs in solitude to live, Ah! soon his wish will gain: Men hope and love, men get and give, and leave him to his pain.
Source: Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship
Who never ate his bread in sorrow, Who never spent the darksome hours Weeping, and watching for the morrow,- He knows you not, ye heavenly Powers.
A person can stand almost anything except a succession of ordinary days.
