Poetry, dreams, desire, everything leads me to you.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The highest achievement of the human being as a thinking being is to have probed what is knowable and quietly to revere what is unknowable.
Did we force ourselves on you, or you on us?
I never knew a more presumptuous person than myself. The fact that I say that shows that what I say is true.
All things transient are but a parable.
And I have again observed, my dear friend, in this trifling affair, that misunderstandings and neglect occasion more mischief in the world than even malice and wickedness. At all events, the two latter are of less frequent occurrence.
