“With the exception of Shakespeare and Spinoza, I know no one among the no longer living who has influenced me more strongly.”

One thought on “Everything is relative”

  1. Well that’s very impressive. Goethe is quite famous, isn’t he? More so on the continent though; I have even heard some of the English pronounce his name “Go-eth”.

    I think you could tag him as a “Fellow Collegiant”, Bento.
