Stray Reflections, 1910

 

 

2. The Discovery
Our Soul discovers itself when we come into contact with a great mind. It is not until I had realised the Infinitude of Goethe’s imagination that I discovered the narrow breadth of my own.
* Iqbal always spelled Goethe as “Geothe.” Dr. Javid Iqbal’s corrections have been retained in the present edition – KAS.
* This reflection was published in New Era, Lucknow, in 1917.  “Goethe’s imagination” was changed to “Goethe’s mind” – KAS.
