Goethe: Ugliness Nullified by Money

Posted by admin on Monday, September 4, 2017

Goethe Money Quote saying our capabilities are vastly extended when we have money to purchase what otherwise would not be possible for us. Goethe said:

What I am and am capable of is by no means determined by my individuality. I am ugly, but I can buy for myself the most beautiful of women. Therefore I am not ugly, for the effect of ugliness – its deterrent power – is nullified by money
— Goethe
