Lord J Esq:

--- Quote from: Leonard Bernstein ---And so Beethoven came to the end of this long symphonic journey—at least for one movement. Imagine a lifetime of this struggle: movement after movement, symphony after symphony, quartet after concerto after sonata, always probing and rejecting and this constant dedication to perfection, to the principle of inevitability. Somehow this is the key, the only key we can have, to the mystery of a great artist…that, for reasons unknown to him, or to anybody else for that matter, he will give away his life and energies just to make sure that one note follows another with complete inevitability. Seems rather an odd way to spend one’s life, but it isn’t so odd when we think that the composer by doing this leaves us at the finish with the feeling that something is right in the world, that checks throughout…something that follows its own law consistently. Something we can trust, that will never let us down.

--- Quote from: Alex Steacy ---Out there are people who want to hear a story that you are uniquely prepared to tell. Another story, even if it’s better, won’t do.

- Juri Nakashima

My Japanese is really rough (but improving) and it translates something along the lines of:

--- Quote ---I love you.
Througout my lifetime,
I will love only you.
Now, I will come to meet you.
In the place two people will meet again.
--- End quote ---

Simply one word:


It applies to many tough situations in life.

Boo the Gentleman Caller:
Nice! I recognize that word from German class!

chrono.source, bist du Deutscher?

You may not be German, as I know it's a word that has sort of slipped into English vernacular (and likely other languages as well). Just curious! FaustWolf and I are both Americans but know some (rusty) rudimentary German and would sometimes slip into it back in the day. There are likely others around here.

Ironically I am half German, but with no dialect ingrained in me. My father lost it after simply not speaking it after moving out from my grandparents' house.

I actually learned that word from a movie called Mr. Nobody. Really bizarre but intriguing. Most "out-there" movies really appeal to me. "The Jacket" being another bizarre movie, but by far my favourite of all time. Definitely worth a watch.

I really do wish I learned German (or any language for that matter)
