Five quotes by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832) was a German poet, playwright, novelist, scientist, statesman, theatre director, and critic. His works include plays, poetry, literature, and aesthetic criticism as well as treatises on botany, anatomy, and colour. He is widely regarded as the greatest and most influential writer in the German language, his work having a profound and wide-ranging influence on Western literary, political and philosophical thought from the late 18th century to the present day.
 Architecture is petrified music. 
 He who does not speak foreign languages knows nothing about his own. 
Wer fremde Sprachen nicht kennt, weiß nichts von seiner eigenen.
 Nothing is more terrifying than ignorance in action. 
Es ist nichts schrecklicher als eine tätige Unwissenheit.
 Patriotism ruins history. 
 Where words fail, deeds speak.
