Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
I do not know myself, and God forbid that I should.
Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.
Whatever necessity lays upon thee, endure; whatever she commands, do.
Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops... at all.
Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean.
This is the highest wisdom that I own; freedom and life are earned by those alone who conquer them each day anew.
What is uttered from the heart alone, Will win the hearts of others to your own.
We can most safely achieve truly universal tolerance when we respect that which is characteristic in the individual and in nations, clinging, though, to the conviction that the truly meritorious is unique by belonging to all of mankind.
What does not kill me makes me stronger.
If a good person does you wrong, act as though you had not noticed it. They will make note of this and not remain in your debt long.
Tolerance should really be only a temporary attitude; it must lead to recognition.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
A leaf that is supposed to grow is full of wrinkles and creases before it develops; if one doesn't have the patience and wants the leaf to be as smooth as a willow leaf from the start, then there is a problem.
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.
When we treat man as he is, we make him worse than he is; when we treat him as if he already were what he potentially could be, we make him what he should be.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more.
There is a courtesy of the heart; it is allied to love. From it springs the purest courtesy in the outward behavior.
Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live.
The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
