Die Rose ist ohne Warum...

Die Rose ist ohne Warum.
Sie blühet, weil sie blühet.
Sie achtet nicht ihrer selbst,
fragt nicht, ob man sie siehet.

Angelus Silesius, 
Cherubinischer Wandersmann, Buch 1.

The rose is without 'why';
it blooms simply because it blooms.
It pays no attention to itself,
nor does it ask whether anyone sees it.

Bad relationships with bad people

If you have bad relationships with bad people you will have a hard life; but, somehow, in spite of all the consequences, you’ll have a good life.

Through the Looking-Glass

Today’s society seems to make a strict point of putting harlots as heads of convents and nuns as heads of brothels. By doing so, we become then incapable of doing anything beyond reversing meaning and reality, as directed by the wishes of the powerful or the delusional.

Knowledge is like candles

Knowledge is like candles: when one is used to light another, it does not diminish the light of the first. On the contrary, everything becomes brighter. 

(Thomas Jefferson) 

Traduzione: La conoscenza è come le candele: quando se ne usa una per accenderne un’altra, non diminuisce la luce della prima. Al contrario, tutto diventa più luminoso.
