1400 Flashes of Insight: The Startling Genius of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Spend as many days as you choose with Goethe in this one-of-a-kind comprehensive collection. You will want to listen again and again at the clearness of his expressions on life’s beautiful facets. A BONUS section is included of 59 in-depth excerpts of excellence, such as:

1438. To look at things as well as we can, to inscribe them in our memory, to be observant, and let no day pass without gathering something; then to apply one’s self to those branches of knowledge which give the mind a sure direction, to apportion everything its place, to assign to everything its value (in my opinion a genuine philosophy and a fundamental mathesis), this is what we have now to do.

1439. That thought I regard as true which is fruitful to myself, which is connected with the rest of my thoughts, and at the same time helps me on. Now it is not only possible, but natural, that such a thought should not connect itself with the mind of another, nor help him on … consequently he will regard it as false. Once we are thoroughly convinced of this, we shall never enter upon controversies.
