Daily Dose

From Elective Affinities, by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, translated by R. J. Hollingdale


"It is so pleasant a sensation to occupy yourself with something you can only half do that you should never reproach the dilettante if he engages in an art he will never learn or blame the artist if he feels inclined to go beyond the boundaries of his art into a neighborouring field."

From Chapter 3
