Die Sprache ist die Haut der Seele. Language is the soul’s skin.

 
 

Translation is not a matter of words only: it is a matter of making intelligible a whole culture. Anthony Burgess

 

Beim Übersetzen muss man bis ans Unübersetzliche herangehen; alsdann wird man aber erst die fremde Nation und die fremde Sprache gewahr. When translating one must proceed up to the intranslatable; only then one becomes aware of the foreign nation and the foreign tongue. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

Billig ist, was zur Anschaffung wenig kostet. Preiswert ist, was den Preis wert ist. (Rough translation: Cheap is something that doesn’t cost much to get. Good value is something that is worth the money.)

 

Worry is wasting today’s time to clutter up tomorrow’s opportunities with yesterday’s troubles.
