Goethe on orbit

Can you dare even to think of yourself in the midst of this eternally living order without then asserting itself within you too something that is in ceaseless motion and describes its orbit about a pure center?
And even if you were to find it difficult to locate this center within you, you would recognise it by the fact that a kind and soothing effect emanates from it and testifies to its existence.

-Wilhelm Meister's Journeyings
