A New Year’s resolution idea from Goethe

I can’t begin to name what I’ve actually read by Goethe. And I think I was 30 or so before I knew how to pronounce his name correctly. Is he a poet? Novelist? Just a thinker? I’m not sure but his quotes I’ve stumbled across are always welcome and wise.


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

About Laura

When my nest emptied I moved from the big city to a little big town to tend to a ramshackle yellow house on the edge of town. These are my Yellow House Days.
