It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.

When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived.

I wonder if anyone can ever succeed in making their children content.
Anne Frank

There's plenty of room for everyone in the world. Enough money, riches, and beauty for all to share. God has made enought for everyone, so let us all begin then by sharing it fairly.

And you can always, always, give kindness

Earning happiness means doing good and working, not speculating and being lazy. Laziness may look inviting, but only work gives you true satisfaction.

I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.

This week I've been reading a lot and doing little work. That's the way things ought to be. That's surely the road to success.

There's something happening everyday, but I'm too tired and lazy to write it all down.

Up till now I always thought bickering was just something children did and they outgrew it. Of course, there's sometimes a reason to have a 'real' quarrel, but the verbal exchanges that take place here are just plain bickering. I should be used to the fact that these squabbles are daily occurrences, but I'm not and never will be as long as I'm the subject of nearly every discussion. (They refer to these as 'discussions instead of 'quarrels', but Germans don't know the difference!)

I am what a romantic movie is to a profound thinker - a mere diversion, a comic interlude, something that is soon forgotten.
