The world only goes forward because of those who oppose it.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Man needs only a small patch of earth for his pleasures, and a smaller one still to rest beneath.
Those who hope for no other life are dead even for this.
The source of all misery lies concealed within me, as the source of all happiness did formerly.
Nothing is worth more than this day. You cannot relive yesterday. Tomorrow is still beyond your reach.
Where is the man who has the strength to be true, and to show himself as he is?
