Goethe's Quote (Part 1)

"Against criticism a man can neither protest nor defend himself; he must act in spite of it, and then it will gradually yield to him"

"Divide and rule, a sound motto; unite and lead, a better one"

"Riches amassed in haste will diminish, but those collected by little and little will multiply."

"Some of our weaknesses are born in us, others are the result of education; it is a question which of the two gives us most trouble."

"I respect the man who knows distinctly what he wishes. The greater part of all the mischief in the world arises from the fact that men do not sufficiently understand their own aims. They have undertaken to build a tower, and spend no more labor on the foundation than would be necessary to erect a hut."

--- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
