Friday Quotations: He's Pretty Much the German Equivalent of Shakespeare

"Big books! Lots of knowledge!
Oh, what I will have to learn!
If it doesn't find its way into my head
Let it be in the book instead!"

--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, written in the copy of Samuel Johnson's Dictionary that he (Goethe) gave to his daughter-in-law.

Later Days.
