I am always in awe of people who can put big thoughts into such concise and appropriate words. One of these individuals is Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Here are a few quotes of his that get to me every time I think about them.
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”
“If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.”
“By seeking and blundering we learn.”
“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
I hope these words encourage you as well.
