Johann Wolfgang von Goethe – A name is not like a mantle

Share this quote:
Johann Wolfgang von GoetheA man’s name is not like a mantle, which merely hangs about him, and which one perchance may safely twitch and pull, but a perfectly fitting garment, which like the skin has grown over and over him, at which one cannot rake and scrape without injuring the man himself.
