Wolfgang Von Goethe

Famous quotes by wolfgang von goethe:

    For thousands the world is a freak show, the images flicker past and disappear, the impressions remain flat and disconnected in the soul. Thus, they are easily led by the opinions of others, are willing to let their impressions be reordered, rearranged, and reevaluated.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    No matter what one says, you can recognize only those matters that are equal to you. Only rulers who possess extraordinary abilities will recognize and esteem properly extraordinary abilities in their subjects and servants.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    People can only live with their equals, and not even with them; for in the long run they cannot tolerate that someone is their equal.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Mankind? That is an abstraction. There have always been and always will be only individuals.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    To become aware in time when young of the advantages of age; to maintain the advantages of youth in old age: both are pure fortune.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
