Poem - wedding

Weddings are one of the rituals of humanity - and that has been for some time. Here is the first verse from the ballad "Kassandra" by Friedrich Schiller to get you in the mood:

Joy was in Troy's halls
Before the high festival fell;
You can hear hymns of jubilation
Golden play in the strings;
All hands rest tired
From the tearful quarrel
Because the wonderful Pelide
Priam's beautiful daughter is free.

Kindness without love makes you hypocritical.

I fear nothing - nothing - but the limits of your love. [Author: Friedrich von Schiller (Cabal and Love)]


It was the nightingale, not the lark

This quote comes from Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" (III, 5). Since the English poet Geoffrey Chaucer (1340-1400), the nightingale has been considered a bird of love and the lark the herald of the morning


Do you want to go already? The day is still far off.
It was the nightingale, and not the lark,
Which just now penetrated your anxious ear;
At night she sings on the pomegranate tree there.
Believe, dear, me: it was the nightingale.


It was the lark, the herald of the day,
Not Philomele; see the jealous streak,
Who lines the clouds there in the east of the morning.
The night burned out its candles
The lively day climbs the misty heights;
Only hurry can save me, delay is death.


The reverse of the sentence »It was the lark and not the nightingale«- probably based on the opening verse of the poem» Morgenruf «by Georg Herwegh (1817-1875) - has spread. Here is the first half of the first verse:

It was the lark, not the nightingale,
That just struck in the sky:
Already it swings up, the sun ball,
Carried by the morning wind.
The day, the day has awakened!

The next 4 verses begin like this:

It was the lark, not the nightingale ...

... Rise from the slumber of sins! ...

... There is no kissing or kissing, ...

... So let go, oh youth, your dreams! ...

... The cheeky playmate of the cloud ...

Differences - woman & man

Men and women react differently - not only when choosing their favorite sayings. Here are some examples: What happens if a man or woman cut their fingers and how will they deal with the mishap? Even if it is said that men only read the newspaper in the morning: here is a short conversation at the breakfast table with an unexpected twist. A train ride that is fun ... When it is clear how to get the tickets most skillfully. Language and its meaning - an example of how logic helps to decipher it: Manager in a balloon meets an engineer. A woman / a man meets a genie on the beach and describes their ideas of an ideal partner. An ironic guide to changing the oil. The result is amazing. Tips for the practical aspects of life: withdrawing money with the EC card - differences in behavior. And before I say - and if they haven't died ... here are a few funny jokes about prejudice and clichés.
