Stopping prohibition and a water tower

“There will be quiet open spaces,
and shady towers sweet with bells,
and quiet folks with quiet faces,
walking among these miracles.”

A chair waiting for the summer to come

"When summer comes I’ll steal away
And find the land of shining day;
I’ll rest beside the singing streams
And make myself a house of dreams."

(H. Taylor in When summer comes)

Going the narrow way

Going the narrow way

"Nichts wird rechts und links mich kränken,
Folg ich kühn dem raschen Flug;
Wollte jemand anders denken,
Ist der Weg ja breit genug."

(J.W. von Goethe in Nichts)

It is in the air

It is in the air

“Because these wings are no longer wings to fly
But merely vans to beat the air
The air which is now thoroughly small and dry
Smaller and dryer than the will
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still.”

(T.S. Eliot in Ash-Wednesday 1930)
