„p>The Way is calm and wide,
Not easy, not difficult.
But small minds get lost.
Hurrying, they fall behind.Clinging, they go too far,
Sure to take a wrong turn.
Just let it be! In the end,
Nothing goes, nothing stays.“
— Stanley Lombardo Philosopher, Classicist 1943

„Years go by
Will I still be waiting
For somebody else to understand
Years go by
If I'm stripped of my beauty
And the orange clouds
Raining in head
Years go by
Will I choke on my tears
Till finally there is nothing left
One more casualty
You know we're too easy Easy Easy“
— Tori Amos American singer 1963
