On the stock of Balzac’s walking-stick: I surmount all obstacles. On mine: All obstacles surmount me. They have that “all” in common.


Auf Balzacs Spazierstockgriff: Ich breche alle Hindernisse. Auf meinem: Mich brechen alle Hindernisse.
Gemeinsam ist das ‘alle’.

“Accept your symptoms. Don’t complain about symptoms, immerse yourself in your suffering.”
