Man, Reach and Wonder. "...him we can save."

Wer immer strebend sich bemüht, den können wir erlösen.

Wonders are many, and none is more wonderful than Man.
--Sophocles in Antigone

"Whosoever increasingly strives upward...him we can save."

Goethe in the Compagna, 1787, JHW Tischbein (1751-1829), Frankfurt, Städelsches Kunstinstitut.
