它的掃描雖然 有點問題 不過很方便我們用諸如"Goethe"等字眼查索
Goethe has a well-known saying, which offends many people : It is only knaves who are modest ! Nur die Lumpen sind bescheiden! but it has its prototype in Cervantes, who includes in his Journey up Parnassus certain rules of conduct for poets, and amongst them the following : Everyone whose verse shows him to be a poet should have a high opinion of himself, relying on the proverb that he is a knave who thinks himself one. And Shakespeare, in many of his Sonnets, which gave him the only opportunity he had of speaking of himself, declares, with a confidence equal to his in genuousness, that what be writes is immortal.
Arthur Schopenhauer (22 February 1788 – 21 September 1860)
