More from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Many hammer all over the wall and believe that with each blow they hit the nail on the head.

Art and Antiquity, III, 1 (1821)

The world is so full of simpletons and madmen, that one need not seek them in a madhouse.

To act is easy; to think is hard.

Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward; they may be defeated, but they start a winning game.
