Notable Quotes: Art Every Day by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I just finished reading Johann von Goethe’s novel TheSorrows of Young Werther, and despite it being a maudlin it was an enjoyable read.  If I ever get accustomed to my new computer I will write up a post with my thoughts.  For now I’ll just post a quote I really like, not from the novel, but something attributed to the great German writer.

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
