“Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.” –Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Then, too, there are times to patiently persevere. Not all is easy or peaceful; at times we must stay the course, step by step, like a diligent marathon runner, committed to her course, unrelenting until the finish line. It might not be a quick race, but more a matter of a marathon.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was a German writer and artist, and a leading figure in German literature. His works include The Sorrows of Young Werther and Faust. He was highly influential to the 19th century.
