Now I am quietly waiting for the catastrophe of my personality to seem beautiful again, and interesting, and modern.

The country is grey and brown and white in trees, snows and skies of laughter always diminishing, less funny not just darker, not just grey.

It may be the coldest day of the year, what does he think of that? I mean, what do I? And if I do, perhaps I am myself again.

aus Mayakovsky (1957) in „Meditations in an emergency“ von Frank O’Hara

„Aber warum geht Phantásien dann zugrunde?“

„Weil die Menschen anfangen, ihre Träume zu vergessen und ihre Hoffnungen zu verlieren. So wird das Nichts immer stärker.“

aus Die Unendliche Geschichte

心が変われば、行動が変わる。
行動が変われば、習慣が変わる。
習慣が変われば、人格が変わる。
人格が変われば、人生が変わる。
