Hear, hear! :)
The ould Geheimrat (privy councillor) like most people suffered from superlative-itis, at least was not immune against it.

Aggressive stupidity is certainly a nuisance. I think there exist quite a few 'things' on this planet which are worse. Would you agree?

Burcu said...

Exactly!
Because you are weak and can't control your anger!

Internation Musing said...

Burcu: who? Goethe, Sean, Me, You, who can not control their anger?.)
Just curious..)
And what do you mean by weak?

Hans , pardon me! :)
I just commented on "There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity".
I mean when someone lays out an aggressive attitude, he or she may not control the anger after a while and makes him/her feel regret.
Ok Ok forget it.. I think i couldn't catch the same meaning as you did mean :)

Sean: I think anger in combination with stupidity is the worst combination.)

Hans - There I am, re-reading Faust...and it's all your fault!;-)
As he says, at the end, "Oh! that I had never been born!" :))))

Internation Musing said...

Claudia, why not another book of Goethe?...)) Faust is so 'heavy'..!

Claudia said...

Hans - Maybe I should...Faust is the only one I have at home. It was obligatory reading in my Literature course. I never wanted to buy, or borrow, another Goethe!.....))
