Goethe's 9 Requirements For a Happy Life
Written by Mark Millard   

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it!
Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it.

According to Goethe, there are nine requirements for a happy, contented life:

1. Health enough to make work a pleasure

2. Wealth enough to support your needs

3. Strength enough to battle with difficulties and foresake them

4. Grace enough to admit your sins and overcome them

5. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished

6. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor

7. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others

8. Faith enough to make real the things of God

9. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was a 19th Century German poet, novelist, philosopher & scientist who offered many insights and encouragements towards fulfilment in life.

The person born with a talent they are meant to use
will find their greatest happiness in using it.
