Goethe on opinions, 2

I keep silent about a lot of things because I don’t like to confuse people, and I’m content for them to be happy about things that annoy me.

Ich schweige zu vielem still; denn ich mag die Menschen nicht irre machen und bin wohl zufrieden, wenn sie sich freuen da, wo ich mich ärgere.
