NEITHER THIS NOR THAT

NEITHER THIS NOR THAT

IF thou to be a slave shouldst will,
Thou’lt get no pity, but fare ill;
And if a master thou wouldst be,
The world will view it angrily;
And if in statu quo thou stay,
That thou art but a fool, they’ll say.

1815.*



Poem NEITHER THIS NOR THAT - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
