Goethe said of mysticism about its relationship to poetry and philosophy in the following quote.
"Poetry points to the riddles of nature and tries to solve them by means of the image. Philosophy directs itself to the riddles of reason, and attempts of solve them by means of the word. Mysticism considers the riddles of both nature and reason, and seeks to solve them through both word and image."
Johann Geothe
