Instruction does much, but encouragement everything.

In a letter to A. F. Oeser (1768). Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832) was a German writer, artist, and politician. His body of work includes epic and lyric poetry written in a variety of metres and styles; prose and verse dramas; memoirs; an autobiography; literary and aesthetic criticism; treatises on botany, anatomy, and colour; and four novels.
