Moving houses means also going through great amounts of things one gathered over the years. One of my favourite treasures I found while packing our home are multiple tiny, medium and big notebooks full of notes and quotes.
Many of the quotes, I captured and saved, made me laugh as I rediscovered them. Especially those from inspirational and mood-uplifting calendars and books, often by an unknown author. Here are four of these in German and Danish with my interpretation in English:
“Ich habe keine Macken, das sind special Effects.”
Interpretation: “I have no faults. These are special effects.”
“Wenn du morgens zerknitter aufwachst, kannst du dich tagsüber wunderbar entfalten!”
Interpretation: “When you wake up all in a bad and wrinkled-crinkled mood, you have a great possibility to unfold during the day.”
“Alles sagten: ‘Das geht nicht’. Dann kam einer, der wusste das nicht und hat’s einfach gemacht.”
Interpreation: “All said, ‘This won’t work’. Then someone came who didn’t know this and simply did it.”
“Ham, der ved alt … har em masse at lære.”
Interpretation: “The one who knows everything, has a lot to learn.”
Picture: When flowers unfold, they bloom.
P.S. Wishing all readers of this post a happily unfolding day full of discoveries, re-discoveries and light-bulb moments.
