Art/Literary - Poetry & Literature / A line from Goethe
English term or phrase: ‘And I arrived, an old man in a strange city, wearing my suit of pain.’
A quote from Goethe in an American novel. From what Goethe's work could it have been taken?

"In his head a hot wire threaded from temple to temple, and he noticed a lump at the back of his skull where he must have hit a rock when he fell off the path a few hours before. His breathing was shallow, raspy, and difficult. A line from Goethe sounded in his ear: ‘And I arrived, an old man in a strange city, wearing my suit of pain.’"
