“... always look cheerful, that makes people feel good and doesn't cost anything.”
“How many joys are crushed under foot because people look up at the sky and disregard what is at their feet.”
Katharina Elisabeth Goethe, German letterwriter, Goethe's mother
(1731 - 1808)
Full name: Katharina Elisabeth Textor Goethe.
