Previous Section   298. VIRTUE WAS NOT INVENTED BY THE GERMANS   Next Section

Virtue was not Invented by the Germans.  Goethe's nobleness and freedom from envy, Beethoven's fine hermitical resignation, Mozart's cheerfulness and grace of heart, Handel's unbending manliness and freedom under the law, Bach's confident and luminous inner life, such as does not even need to renounce glamour and success — are these qualities peculiarly German?  — If they are not, they at least prove to what goal Germans should strive and to what they can attain.
