Probably the last 6 books I have read and perused have all mentioned Goethe. I knew nothing of him until all these books started shouting his name at me. But he is obviously extremely important and influential. How have I never head anything about him before? I probably wasn't listening. Or I just don't remember. Uhg. I need to retain information better.

I'm reading Faust right now! Mahler uses the end of Faust II in the finale of his Eighth Symphony - you should check it out.

Goethe was a wise man. My blog is named after something he said!
