Today´s quote

“There is no art in turning a goddess into a witch, a virgin into a whore, but the opposite operation, to give dignity to what has been scorned, to make the degraded desirable, that calls for art or for character.”

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Conversations with Goethe

Johann Peter Eckermann was probably Goethe’s most dedicated disciple.

Goethe gave his accord so that Eckermann would write a book about their discussions.

Conversations with Goethe is a master piece. It is not a coincidence that Nietzsche considered this book to be German literature’s foremost work.

There are very few books I can recommend, but this work is the quintessence of Goethe`s lifelong experiences and wisdom.

It really provides you with valuable perennial insight about what Life, Art and Human destiny is about.
