Goethe's Essentials for Contented Living

Health enough to make work a pleasure

Wealth enough to support your needs

Strength enough to battle difficulties and overcome them

Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them

Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished

Clarity enough to see some good in your neighbour

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

Faith enough to make real the things of God

Hope enough to remove all anxious fears confronting the future
