Goethe Quote on Ignorance — 3 Comments

  1. I enjoyed the Maypole vignette.
    I don’t think I ever saw a Maypole when I was young. However, the soundtrack of Camelot often sounded through our house. One of those favorite songs had the lyrics, “It’s May, it’s May, the lusty month of May!” I had no idea what ‘lusty’ meant. Perhaps something from Germanic paganism?

    • Of course lusty means “full of vigor.” We tend to think of one aspect of that. There are surprisingly sexual references in the Camelot soundtrack, especially in the song of the frustrated Knights “Fie on Goodness.”
