  •  Ah, this was the passage of which I was thinking (2+ / 0-)

    "There are but two roads that lead to an important goal and to the doing of great things: strength and perseverance. Strength is the lot of but a few privileged men; but austere perseverance, harsh and continuous, may be employed by the smallest of us and rarely fails of its purpose, for its silent power grows irresistibly greater with time."

    So Goethe points out that anyone can be among Brecht's 'indispensible', as long as they persevere, not merely the fortunate or the 'privileged'.
