Wisdom from Goethe

I have been reading about how many of the fundamental constants which govern the development of the cosmos are finely tuned in order to provide a livable universe. For instance, a slight increase or decrease in the strength of gravity would result in universe either of only black holes or, respectively, of no suns or galaxies at all. Then I come across this from"Conversations with Goethe" (Da Capo Press edition 1998, p 75):

"Nature goes her own way and all that to us seems an exception is really according to order."
