For the new year


Take 12 months,
thoroughly scrub them of bitterness and envy, pedantry and fear.
Divide each month into 30 or 31 parts, so that the supply suffices for one year.
Each day will be made up of one part work and two parts cheerfulness and humor.
Add three rounded tablespoons of optimism, along with a teaspoon of tolerance and a grain of irony, plus a pinch of tact.
Then, pour an ample amount of love over the whole thing.
The finished dish may be garnished with small sprigs of attentiveness, then cheerfully served every day along with a refreshing cup of tea.
~ Katharina Elisabeth Goethe (1731-1808),
mom of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
