Disraeli Benjamin
Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.

Gauß Carl Friedrich
Es ist nicht das Wissen, sondern das Lernen,
nicht das Besitzen, sondern das Erwerben,
nicht das Dasein, sondern das Hinkommen,
was den größten Genuss gewährt.

de Saint-Exupéry Antoine
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add but when there is nothing left to take away

Da Vinci Leonardo
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

Wenn Sie einsam sind, wenn Sie allein sind, befinden Sie sich in schlechter Gesellschaft.

Chanel Coco
Wer sich in der eigenen Gesellschaft nicht wohl fühlt, hat gewöhnlich ganz recht.

Sprenger Reinhard K.
