Thoughts … … …

Neither one who passes by the name of living nor one who has entered into the shadow of death is truly alive unless still sincerely loved by a fellow human being
-          Stefan Zweig

In the world of feeling, deep may call to deep, even from a vast distance
-          Anon

The best place to hide a needle is not in the haystack but among other bunch of needles
-          Sherlock Holmes – the movie ‘The Sign of 4’

A foolish man proclaimeth his qualifications
A wise man keepeth them secret within himself
A straw floateth on the surface of water
But a precious gem placed upon it sinketh
-          Anon

If you reach the top of a mountain, keep climbing
-          Old Zen proverb

Bestelle dein Haus,
Denn du wirst Sterben,
Und nicht lebendig bleiben

Set thy house in order,
For thou shalt die,
And not remain alive.

There is no document of culture that is not at the same time a document of barbarism
-          Literary critic Walter Benjamin

Tell me who your friend is, and I will tell you who you are!
-          Russian proverb
