Sometimes when we are talking she lays her hand upon mine, and in the eagerness of conversation comes closer to me, and her balmy breath reaches my lips,—when I feel as if lightning.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
MARGARETE. Yes, out of sight is out of mind. It's second nature with you, gallantry; But you have friends of every kind, Cleverer by far, oh much, than me. FAUST. Dear girl, believe me, what's called cleverness Is mostly shallowness and vanity.
Nothing is more terrible than to see ignorance in action.
There is nothing in which people more betray their character than in what they laugh at.
Wisdom lies only in truth.
If you wish to know the mind of a man, listen to his words.
