Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Book Of Contemplation - Five Things

 Next Poem          

WHAT makes time short to me?

Activity!
What makes it long and spiritless?

'Tis idleness!
What brings us to debt?

To delay and forget!
What makes us succeed?

Decision with speed
How to fame to ascend?

Oneself to defend!
