Johann Wolfgang v Goethe

28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832 / Frankfurt am Main

Book Of Parables - All Kinds Of Men

ALL kinds of men, both small and great,
A fine-spun web delight to create,
And in the middle they take their place,
And wield their scissors with wondrous grace.
But if a besom should sweep that way:
'What a most shameful thing,' they say,--
'They've crush'd a mighty palace to-day.'
