Famous quotes containing the word von:

    Music is either sacred or secular. The sacred agrees with its dignity, and here has its greatest effect on life, an effect that remains the same through all ages and epochs. Secular music should be cheerful throughout.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    That we understand something perfectly, that we accomplish something better than anyone else around us, that is what matters.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Gray, dear friend, is all theory,
    But green the golden tree of life.
    —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
