This garage makes driving into a nostalgic event

"Auf einmal erschein' ich
Ein blinkender Stern.
"Was glänzet da droben,
So nah und so fern?"
Und hast du mit Staunen
Das Leuchten erblickt;
Ich lieg dir zu Füßen,
Da bin ich beglückt!"

(J.W. von Goethe in Sehnsucht)
Marcinelle (B)

A toilet bowl against pollution


“Contrairement au chasseur
qui lui n’est pas un lapin,
le pollueur, lui, est
une ordure”

(Ph. Geluk)

Entrance to the school for writing errors

Entrance to the school for writing errors

And these I see, these sparkling eyes,
These stores of mystic meaning, these young lives,
Building, equipping like a fleet of ships, immortal ships,
Soon to sail out over the measureless seas,
On the soul's voyage.

Only a lot of boys and girls?
Only the tiresome spelling, writing, ciphering classes?
Only a public school?
Ah more, infinitely more.

(W. Whitman in Song of democracy)

Bus stop and a fading railway station

Bus stop and a fading railway station

“Lights are burning
In quiet rooms
Where lives go on
Resembling ours.

The quiet lives
That follow us—
These lives we lead
But do not own—”

(D. Justice in Bus stop)
