LIFE
Die Erfahrung ist nur die Frucht früherer Irrtümer, drum muß
man sich etwas verirren.
///
Experience is nothing but the fruit of earlier mistakes, that´s
why one needs to go astray at times.
LIFE
Er hat lang genug gelebt, um einsehen zu lernen, daß man
dann und wann, anstandshalber, etwas Gutes tun muß.
///
He has lived long enough to come to the realization that every
once in a while, for the sake of civility, one ought to do some
good.
