Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

Nothing is more damaging to a new truth than an old error.
One never goes so far as when one doesn't know where one is going.
Everything in the world may be endured except continued prosperity.
A talent is formed in stillness, a character in the world's torrent.
A purpose you impart is no longer your own.
Be above it! Make the world serve your purpose, but do not serve it.
All intelligent thoughts have already been thought; what is necessary is only to try to think them again.
Anecdotes and maxims are rich treasures to the man of the world, for he knows how to introduce the former at fit place in conversation.
Reason can never be popular. Passions and feelings may become popular, but reason will always remain the sole property of a few eminent individuals.
