Example text

Durchsichtig ist das Gute in der Welt; Und Gott ist aller Dinge letzter Sinn. Sag nicht, dass edle Schönheit uns betört — Nicht den, der ihres Sanges Tiefe hört. Kleinigkeiten Groß sein, und doch auf kleine Dinge achten: Gar oft ist Kleines wie ein Teil der Größe. Der Eitle mag die Kleinigkeit verachten — Der Kluge muss den Sinn des Kleinen sehen. Groß sein ist nicht die Kunst, sich aufzublähen — Größe will nach der Dinge Wesen trachten. Autumn Leaves 47 Mermaids Mermaids bewitch fishermen with songs, And pull them into the cool, green depths — Thus the worldly man follows his passions, As if called by a sweet voice.

The Art of Gardening Artificial gardens should not exist; Let the plants live as they wish. Consider the wilderness: there is nothing more beautiful Before the creative Face of God. Zen gardens philosophize instead of blooming, And so they lose the real meaning of gardening. If you wish to depict the void, go to the seashore And bury your mind in the sand! II Menschliches  Human Themes Herbstblätter 26 Heilkunde Heilkunst: sie soll des Menschen Leiden lindern, Gar manches heilen, Übel auch verhindern; Mag auch der Tod uns von der Erde raffen — Ziel kann nicht sein, das Sterben abzuschaffen.

Herbstblätter 16 Entartung Ein altes Königsschloss ist schön an sich, Jedoch der Innenprunk ist fürchterlich — Es gibt nichts Überspanntres in der Welt. Gelobt sei der Nomaden schlichtes Zelt! Reichtum hat Sinn, wenn er zum Schönen fließt, Nicht wenn er schwülen Traum in Formen gießt. Barmherzigkeit: sie ziert des Reichen Herz; Ergebenheit zieht Armut himmelwärts. Armut hat Wert, wenn sie den Glauben nährt; Wenn sie sich bitter gegen Reiche kehrt, Ist ihr Verdienst dahin. Ob reich, ob nicht — Ihr stehet vor des Ewigen Gericht.
