A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on education, excellence, good, rest, and value

Taste is only to be educated by contemplation, not of the tolerably good but of the truly excellent. I therefore show you only the best works; and when you are grounded in these, you will have a standard for the rest, which you will know how to value, without overrating them.
