About this Quote

This quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe speaks to the concept that real joy and contentment in life comes from learning to value and enjoy the things we have to do, even if they are not always the things we would pick to do. It is not about doing what we desire, but rather finding out to find pleasure and complete satisfaction in the things we need to do. This might imply discovering the beauty in the mundane tasks of everyday life, or learning to value the hard work and dedication it takes to achieve something tough. By learning to appreciate the important things we have to do, we can discover real joy and satisfaction in life. This quote motivates us to search for the blessings in the things we need to do, and to find happiness in the journey, instead of just the destination.
