Alphabetarion # Distance | Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1795

Paul Klee, Southern (Tunisian) gardens, 1919.

“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities;
but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us,
and though distant, is close to us in spirit
— this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship, 1795
