I hear babies cry
I watch them grow
They learn much more
Than I'll ever know

"What a Wonderfull World"
Luis Armstrong


The Lord Buddha said in the Kalama Sutta:

"Do not believe in what you have heard; do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations; do not believe in anything because it is rumoured and spoken by many; do not believe merely because a written statement of some old sage is produced; do not believe in conjectures; do not believe in that as truth to which you have become attached from habit; do not believe merely the authority of your teachers and elders. After observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and gain of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."


... wir haben die Vergangenheit vor uns, sie ist das einzig Wirkliche, aus der Vergangenheit können wir Wissen und Erfahrung fürs Leben ziehen; die Gegenwart ist eine Täuschung, denn in weniger als einem Augenblick gehört sie schon zu Vergangenheit, und die Zukunft ist ein schwarzes Loch, das man nicht sehen kann, und vielleicht ist sie gar nicht vorhanden, denn wir können in diesem Augenblick sterben.

Isabel Allende in "Der unendliche Plan"


"We have a tradition in Mexico that each person dies three times. First, there is the moment in which the body stops functioning. Second, there is the time that the remains are consigned to the grave. Third, there is that moment, sometime in the future, in which the person's name is spoken for the last time. Then the person is really gone."
