Dancing Shoes

I found these words written to Christiane Vulpius by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, whom he met in 1788.

" Please send me your last pair of shoes,

worn out with dancing

as you mentioned in your letter,

so that I might have something

to press against my heart. "

           ~J. W. von Goethe.

Oh my goodness - I hear his quotes all the time and this is the best one yet - I never knew he was in love - how romantic - to press against his heart . . .
