Quote of the week:
"Nothing is worth more than this day."
|Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born in Germany in 1749. As a young man, he studied law. During his studies, he attended lectures in history, political science, anatomy, surgery and chemistry. He began writing editiorials, plays, and poetry. Through the 1780s, he also conducted scientific studies in anatomy, botany, and geology. His best known piece of writing is "Faust, Der Tragödie erster Teil". The fate of Faust, an inquisitive genius, is depicted as part of a deal between god and Mephistopheles (the devil). He actually finished the piece over twenty years after he started it, and placed it in a sealed envelope to be opened after his death. Goethe died in 1832.|
