    There is no way to face the great advantages of another person than through love.

    You will find the most pronounced hatred of other nations on the lowest cultural levels. There is, though, a level where the hatred disappears completely and where one so to speak stands above the nations and where one experiences fortune or misfortune of a neighboring country as if they had happened to one’s own.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Love, whose power youth feels, is not suitable for the elderly, just as little as anything that presupposes productivity. It is rare that productivity lasts through the years.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    The older I get the more I trust in the law according to which the rose and the lily bloom.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    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.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
