Melchior: I followed my thoughts.“

„I was a baby when I came into the world--otherwise I might have been smart enough to become a different person.“

„Monuments are for the living, not for the dead.“ Spring's Awakening


„Search fearlessly for every sin, for out of sin comes joy.“

„And, therefore, hold your head high, Herr Stiefel!——Such a crisis as this comes to all of us and will soon be surmounted. If all of us had recourse to dagger or poison in such cases, there would soon be no men left in the world.“ Spring's Awakening

I fastened the door and flew through the flaming lines as a frightened owl flies through a burning wood——I believe I read most of it with my eyes shut.“ Spring's Awakening

„Half happy. We wander among Mayflowers, among the lonely paths in the woods. We hover over gatherings of people, over the scene of accidents, gardens, festivals. We cower in chimneys of dwelling places and behind the bed curtains. Give me your hand. We don’t associate with each other, but we see and hear everything that is going on in the world. We know that everything is stupidity, everything that men do and contend for, and we laugh at it.“

„Der vermummte Herr Warum prahlen Sie denn dann mit Erhabenheit?! – Sie wissen doch, daß das Humbug ist – saure Trauben! Warum lügen Sie geflissentlich, Sie – Hirngespinst! – – Wenn Ihnen eine so schätzenswerte Wohltat damit geschieht, so bleiben Sie meinetwegen. Aber hüten Sie sich vor Windbeuteleien, lieber Freund – und lassen Sie mir bitte Ihre Leichenhand aus dem Spiel.“ Spring's Awakening
