There is a theory which states that if anyone
discovers exactly what the Universe is for
and why it is here, it will instantly disappear
and be replaced by something even more
bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states
that this has already happened.
Douglas Adams

Das Studium und allgemein das Streben
nach Wahrheit und Schönheit ist ein Gebiet,
auf dem wir das ganze Leben lang
Kinder bleiben dürfen.
Albert Einstein

The objective world simply is, it does not happen.
Only to the gaze of my consciousness,
crawling upward along the life line of my body,
does a section of this world come to life
as a fleeting image in space
which continuously changes in time.
Hermann Weyl

What if everything is an illusion
and nothing exists? In that case,
I definitely overpaid for my carpet.
Woody Allen

Wenn du etwas so machst, wie du es
seit zehn Jahren gemacht hast,
dann sind die Chancen recht groß,
dass du es falsch machst.
Charles Kettering
Wir haben nicht zuviel Intellekt und
zuwenig Seele, sondern zuwenig Intellekt
in Angelegenheiten der Seele.
Robert Musil

Schöne Tage - nicht weinen, dass sie vergangen,
sondern lächeln, dass sie gewesen.
Rabindranath Tagore

I would love to believe that when I die
I will live again, that some thinking, feeling,
remembering part of me will continue.
But much as I want to believe that, and despite
the ancient and worldwide cultural traditions
that assert an afterlife, I know of nothing to
suggest that it is more than wishful thinking.
The world is so exquisite with so much love
and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive
ourselves with pretty stories for which there's
little good evidence. Far better it seems to me,
in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye
and to be grateful every day for the brief
but magnificent opportunity that life provides.
Carl Sagan

Words make you think a thought.
Music makes you feel a feeling.
But a song makes you feel a thought.
Yip Harburg

Woher kommt es, dass mich niemand versteht
und jeder mag?

Albert Einstein
