We can offer up much in the large, but to make sacrifices in little things is what we are seldom equal to.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

Nothing is worth more than this day. You cannot relive yesterday. Tomorrow is still beyond your reach
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.
