Bite-Sized Wisdom: Von Goethe

This German playwright breaks down an ideal way to spend the day. Funny how prescriptions from centuries gone by can still be entirely apt today.

“Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.”
– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

  1. I love this photo (and the quote)! There is nothing so wonderful (to me) as watching children dance freely, no “steps” or direction, just doing what the music calls from their souls. This is dance in its purest form…no editing, no censoring…music made visible. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
