That Goethe quote reminded me of a quote from one of my favorite novel series, Steven Erikson's massively epic The Malazan Book of the Fallen:

Kallor said, 'I walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I have commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I have spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'
'Yes,' said Caladan Brood, 'you never learn.'
I breed in chaotic frenzy!

Might I suggest one small amendment to this quote of awesome wisdom? It needs the word 'butter' right at the end.

Good suggestion! I will consider it when preaching it to strangers on the bus...

To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.

This one's an all-time favourite of mine:
“All this time, we got the fable of sleeping beauty wrong. The prince didn’t kiss her to wake her up, no one who’s slept for a hundred years is likely to wake up. It was the other way around. He kissed her to wake himself up from the nightmare that has brought him there.”
–Max Payne: Sami Järvi
