no matter if you spend it
laughing or crying.

does not shoes any gratitude to its
past.

One day
in the sunrise of another world
I will sing to you:
"I already SAW you in the light of earth,
in the LOVE of mankind."

But life is the BEGINNING of life.

TRUST your DREAMS,
because the GATE to ETERNITY
is hidden there.

(Khalil Gibran)

God gave your mind WINGS,
which you can use to rise
into the wide firmament of LOVE and FREEDOM.

And you PITIFUL creature
CLIP these wings with your OWN hand
and allow your own soul to
CREEP along the floor like an insect.

(Khalil Gibran)

When will I give up BEING AMAZED
and START UNDERSTANDING.
What am I? What is the human being?
What is the world, in which I live?

(Galileo Galilei)
