Goethe, on life

Das Leben sei so hübsch, daß man völlig für gleichgültig achten könne, wem man es zu verdanken habe: denn es schriebe sich doch zuletzt von Gott her, vor welchem wir alle gleich wären.

Life seemed to me so beautiful that I thought one should regard it as completely a matter of indifference to whom one owed it. And in the end it was in any event to be ascribed to God, before whom we were all equal.
