Goethe

You too will have peace

Over all the mountaintops is peace,
In all the treetops, scarcely a breath;
The little birds in the forest are silent.
Wait then; you, too, will have peace.

~ Goethe

Truth's Dancing Partner

Mystery is truth's dancing partner.

~ Goethe

My greatest wealth is the deep stillness

My greatest wealth is the deep
stillness
in which I strive and grow
and win what the world cannot take
from me with fire or sword.

~ Goethe

See a beautiful picture everyday

An individual must hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a beautiful picture everyday in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of Beauty which God has implanted in the human soul.
~ Goethe - 1795
