Brüder

We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.

Wir haben den Luftraum wie Vögel beflogen und das Meer wie Fische beschwommen, aber müssen noch die einfache Handlung lernen die Erde wie Brüder zu betreten.

― Martin Luther King

Human Identity

If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I think I am living for, in detail, and ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully the thing I want to live for. Between these two answers you can determine the identity of any person. The better answer he has, the more of a person he is.

Wenn Sie mich kennenlernen wollen, fragen Sie mich nicht, wo ich wohne, oder was ich gerne esse, oder wie ich meine Haare käme, sondern fragen Sie mich, wofür ich glaube, dass ich lebe, im Detail, und fragen Sie mich, was ich denke, was mich davon abhält, das zu leben, wofür ich leben möchte. Zwischen diesen beiden Antworten können Sie die Identität jeder Person feststellen. Je besser er antwortet, desto mehr ist er ein Mensch.

― Thomas Merton
