Die enge Pforte und der schmale Weg, der zum Leben führt,
ist der des guten Lebenswandels;
die weite Pforte und der breite Weg, den viele wandeln,
ist die Kirche.

The small gate and narrow way that lead to life
are that of the life well lived;
the wide gate and broad way that many go
is the church.
~Kant
στενὴ ἡ πύλη
καὶ τεθλιμμένη ἡ ὁδὸς
ἡ ἀπάγουσα εἰς τὴν ζωήν,
καὶ ὀλίγοι εἰσὶν οἱ εὑρίσκοντες αὐτήν.

Small the gate
and narrow the road
leading to life
and few are finding it.
~Jesus
Simple can be harder than complex.
~Steve Jobs
The simpler the better.
~Cary Grant

174.

Not knowing is
hardly the problem. 
that pretending you do is.

173.

Desires are best fulfilled
when you let God reveal
the path to them.

172.

The difference between fashion and style?
One is others telling you who you are,
the other is you telling them.
Was aus Liebe getan wird, geschieht
immer jenseits von Gut und Böse.

What is done out of love always

happens beyond good and evil.
~Nietzsche
Oh to ride the wind, to tread the air above the din.
Oh to laugh aloud, dancing as we fought the crowd.
~Robert Plant

171.

This morning, for the first time,
I could really fly in my dreams.
