Steve Layman, in his “Checking in with…” series, gathers some inspiring quotes from Goethe:
A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.

I realise I know hardly anything about Goethe, other than Faust.
The above quote reminds me of Marcus (Meditations, 5.16): “for the soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts.”
