My Ten Best Of Goethe Quotes

One of the books that I want to read, but I didn’t make it until now, is the Italian Journey by the German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. It is considered as one of his most inspirational works because it is based to the letters he wrote while travelling to Italy in order to fulfil his personal and artistic quests and leaving behind the fame and his duties in his country. It’s always interesting to read the journal of others, especially when it is written by great novelists and poets, like Goethe. In this post, I gathered my ten favourite and most inspirational Goethe’s quotes. I think his words will remind you quotes of subsequent authors.
