Niemand wird geboren, um einen anderen Menschen zu hassen. Menschen müssen zu hassen lernen. Liebe empfindet das menschliche Herz viel natürlicher als ihr Gegenteil - Nelson Mandela
Nobody is born hating another person. People must learn to hate and if they can learn to hate they can be taught to love, for love comes more natural to the human heart than its opposite - Nelson Mandela
Das Leben wird nicht nach den Tagen gemessen, die man gelebt hat, sondern nach den Augenblicken, die einem den Atem geraubt haben!
Life is not measured by the numbers of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breaths away!
Träume nicht dein Leben, sondern lebe deinen Traum!
Do not dream your life; live your dreams!
