    “ The Paradoxical Commandments

    People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
    Love them anyway.

    If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
    Do good anyway.

    If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
    Succeed anyway.

    The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
    Do good anyway.

    Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
    Be honest and frank anyway.

    The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
    Think big anyway.

    People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
    Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

    What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
    Build anyway.

    People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
    Help people anyway.

    Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
    Give the world the best you have anyway.”

    It may be that the old astrologers had the truth exactly reversed, when they believed that the stars controlled the destinies of men.
    The time may come when men control the destinies of stars.

    but we lost each other instead.

    “Um die Einsamkeit ists eine schöne Sache wenn man mit sich selbst in Frieden lebt, und was bestimmtes zu thun hat.”
    —Goethe

    “It is a beautiful thing to be lonely when one lives in peace with oneself and has something definite to do.”
    —Goethe

    This is what appeared from my translation project today. Every so often, something like this appears which propels me forward.

    You come home,
    make some tea,
    sit down in your armchair,
    and all around there's silence.
    Everyone decides for themselves
    whether that's loneliness
    or freedom.

    In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.

    Know your Worth
    You must find the courage to leave the table, if respect is no longer being served.
