Bio

Es ist überall nichts in der Welt, ja überhaupt auch außer derselben zu denken möglich, was ohne Einschränkung für gut könnte gehalten werden, als allein ein guter Wille.
(Kant)

Was mich bewegt, das Kleine mit Spott und mit Ernst zu verfolgen?

Weil es das Kleine nur ist, welches das Groβe verdrängt.

(Goethe)
