SOMETHING ABOUT BISEXUALITY BY JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE


"Girls we love for what they are; young men for what they promise to be."

"If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise."

"The unnatural, that too is natural."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was an important figurehead in German Romanticism, particularly the Sturm und Drang movement. The flamboyance and sensuality of his poems written in youth particularly show this, much to the distaste of critics from the more puritan Romanticism in England at the time.

WOW, seems to me like he was a little fruity...with the whole "if god had wanted me otherwise, he would have made me otherwise"

Does it seem like that to anyone else..I like it although im not sure what the first quote is trying to say..what boys promise to be?..A little help castor?

At that time the German artists and scientists rediscovered the beauty of the ancient world with the ideal of pederasty (which was quite normal in the ancient world ... where even the God Apollo was bisexuell :-)like Godfather Zeus and so on ... ) :

"what boys promise to be" ... Goethe wants to say that the love to young men envolves also their enthusiasm, their thirst for knowledge and their future creativity and not only their physical beauty ( you are the best example for such a young man, Elmo !!! :-)... that's it :-)

Love,

Castor

TE AMO ELMO ... por que el amor es también el sentido de la vida :-)y tu eres digno de ser amado !

Is this correct? :-)

I don't know very much about the sailors because Vienna is far away from the sea, it's a pity :-(, but I know that sex (without love) you can have nearly with everybody ;-)
