Johann Wolfgang Goethe Quotes

One must ask children and birds
how cherries and strawberries taste.

Being brilliant is no great feat if you respect nothing.

Nothing is more terrible than to see ignorance in action.

Fresh activity is the only means of overcoming adversity.

Behavior is the mirror in which everyone shows their image.

One can be instructed in society, one is inspired only in solitude.

If you wish to know the mind of a man, listen to his words.

The coward only threatens when he is safe.

Let everyone sweep in front of his own door,
and the whole world will be clean.

There is nothing in which people more betray
their character than in what they laugh at.

It is the strange fate of man, that even in the greatest
of evils the fear of the worst continues to haunt him.

Great thoughts and a pure heart,
that is what we should ask from God.

Girls we love for what they are;
young men for what they promise to be.

Dream no small dreams for they have no power
to move the hearts of men.

If I love you, what business is it of yours?
