tip Was ist das Schönste, das Sie jemals gelesen haben?
Haggarty „ I am dead because I lack desire;
I lack desire because I think I possess;
I think I possess because I do not try to give.
In trying to give, you see that you have nothing;
Seeing that you have nothing, you try to give of yourself;
Trying to give of yourself, you see that you are nothing;
Seeing you are nothing, you desire to become;
In desiring to become, you begin to live.“
(Renй Daumal, 1944, kurz vor seinem Tod)

„The baby lay there in the hollow of the tree, her mouth open, allowing flies and
beetles to creep in until her mouth was full. Then she would swallow … and in this way she lived and grew.“
