I had to promise not to fly.

Our living is not always proof of our existence.

X

The agony of cut flowers fills
our rooms with a sweet smell.

X

Swallows fly away in autumn.
Crows remain, overwhelmed with responsibility.

X

The level of culture is so high
that people fight for books.

X

If life sprang our accidentally,
how can we define its meaning?

X

Just like the stag’s horns,
wisdom is a cumbersome ornament.

X

A woman’s soul is like a book.
It must be too good to be read twice.

X

Love is like snake poison.
It either cures or kills.

X

Do not sigh! Do not waste air!

X

Some people are so stunningly polite
that we forget to thank them.

X


Some dreams do come true.
I dreamt the other night that I was sleeping.

X

Can the temple of reason be heart – shaped?

X

She found that black clothes suit her.
Ever since, she has prayed for the death of a relative.

X

The garbage had a nightmare.
It was about a broom.

X

Jokers!
You have written H2O on the water tanks
and three philologists have simply died of thirst.

X

The ideal of any man is to earn more money
than his wife can spend.

X

The argument of a base man: mud cures people.

X

I am so tired.
I wish that grave over there was empty.

X

I could read the craving for eternity
even in the snowman’s eyes.

X

I want to grow yet
I know the thunderbolt strikes the tallest trees.

X

There are many who keep buzzing like bees
wondering why no honey comes of it.

X

Ruins also come to maturity in the course of time.

While the sun has set for us,
the great mountains can still see it.

Oh, all these heavy stones that protect flowers
in winter time, only to prevent them
from sprouting in spring.

Some empires died much harder than
certain film directors can imagine.

X

As long as the cage is not safely bolted,
I consider the lion to be absolutely right.

X

Trying to disfigure the monster,
they made it almost likable.

X

We have made ourselves clothes and lost our fur;
we have made ourselves fur caps and lost our hair;
we have made ourselves computers and only
the devil knows what we are going to lose next.

X

He used to carry a heavy cudgel
and give us a course of lectures on tactfulness.

the way a flower doubts its own beauty
when not picked.

that he must have been an honest man.

its historic mission accomplished.

X

When she is closer, you realize to your sorrow
that se is your wife.

X

The skylark should not bark.
It should either sing or keep silent.

The moment Robinson saw man Friday,
he decided to hold a meeting.

X

One must suffer to find out the taste of solace.

X

of the first wedding is also called a golden wedding.

when they are happy.

He told me I was holding it in my hand.

I sometimes wonder why we are still dying.

in the choir of silence.

how much ashamed of them we might be.

X

You can demonstrate that white is black,
but you will need vast bibliography.

X

This man, just like oil paintings,
should be relished from a distance.

X

The idealist claims that it is the idea of a stone
that has hit him in the head. What is more,
he maintains that the result is
but the idea of a swelling bump.

X

It is in the filth of the ooze that fertility lies.

X

The fear of thieves in ancient times
has done modern archeology a great service.

X

Some people are willing to buy scars provided
they can register them in their personal record.

A supreme contradiction:
the boundlessness of our ambitions
faced with our innate fragility.

X

It is not logic, but certain glands,
that condition vainglory.

X

Be a rock! Embrace your land and do not be sad
because the dandelion can fly.

X

The eagle, a predator
has been chosen as a symbol for power.

X

The bullfighter, after all,
is also a butcher,
but one who complicates matters further.

I have no experience whatsoever.

To my mind, the naked truth is not moral.

X

Small fish praise the leniency
of the fishing net.

X

Whenever I open my eyes, I am guilty of prying.

should be listened to as well.

just as cactus lives on the water
accumulated in its stem.

We do stumble over the truth,
but much more rarely we do break our heads against it.

Just like a bee,
I can strike deeply only once.

Human civilization will be a huge stalactite.
Nowadays, we can see its very first crystals.

X

A philosopher, when shopping anywhere,
will ask only about mind and matter.

X

Why do we keep lions within iron cages?
For dear someone might steal them.

X

Man suffers a lot because of his intelligence
just as the crocodile does
because of its precious skin.

X

Cuckoos are like poets.
They sing accurately and at regular hours.

X

Punishing somebody is
a severe punishment in itself.

X



I used to have a sickly friend
who would move heaven and earth to get old sooner
for fear of dying young.

X

Seeing that we are born,
let us therefore seek our destiny.

X

We can only be either
beautiful or not photogenic.

X

Dealers may have no appreciation of painting,
but it is their money that has made it thrive.

X

When I do not have the nerve to refuse,
I become generous.

Many enemies, just like germs, are invincible
because of their smallness.

X

Even the shadow of a hare
believes in the helplessness of the sun.

X

There are many who enter the Pantheon of history
leaving their heads in the cloak – room.

X

Now to the left, then to the right.
That is the way the snake wriggles along.

X

Science has not done away with cruelty.
It has only given it a scientific character.

X


Do not bother to wash your ears for such rumors!

X

As long as we live on other living beings,
any kind of justice is questionable.

X

We sow the seeds of generosity hoping that
they will yield gratitude.

X

A sheep will never be able to understand why Easter
should be celebrated slaughtering lambs.

X

Most of the time, we only leave behind a house,
just like snails.

X

When you want to have your ship lightened,
don’t start with the life boat.

X

To commit suicide is to commit murder.
Suicides should be brought back to life
and punished severely.

X

Mythology. The owl sleeps all day long
and passes for the symbol of wisdom.

X

He who has lost his way finds new ones.

X

It is a pity that
dinosaurs have become extinct.
Just think of the things that
could have been made out of their skin.

X

Selfishness will last as long
as grammar admits of possessive adjectives.

X

One slight genetic retouch
and horses will be born shod already.

X

I want to be embalmed - not that I believe
in the life to come - only to spring
a pleasant surprise on archeologists.

X

When describing the sun
you should not start with the spots.

X

Unlike human beings,
grass can not mow itself down.

X

Climb higher up!
The true diamond searcher treads gold under foot.

X

Shall we ever be able to fathom the mysteries
of the Universe with only the five senses which
Nature has temporarily entrusted to us?

X

When you feel you are drowning,
you should not speak of mutual assistance.

X

The way to some ideals leads downwards.

X

until he has consulted the encyclopaedia.

by the textile industry.

there comes an abyss.

its fragrant pain.

You must have a thorough knowledge of the
mechanism of banality to be able to rise above it.

The mirror is not the invention of an ugly man.

X

When love’s play is over,
the nightingale is silent.

A donkey is willing to carry all the burden
so as not to take the lead of the flock.

X

Almightiness has made the lion the king of the desert.

having any sheep in my family.
