Herbstblätter 46 Nixen Nixen bezaubern Fischer mit Gesang Und ziehn sie in die kühle, grüne Tiefe — So folgt der Weltmensch seiner Leidenschaft, Als ob ihn eine süße Stimme riefe. Der Weltliche; nicht so der Geistesmann, Der alles liebt in Gott, nicht ohne Ihn. Durchsichtig ist das Gute in der Welt; Und Gott ist aller Dinge letzter Sinn. Sag nicht, dass edle Schönheit uns betört — Nicht den, der ihres Sanges Tiefe hört. Kleinigkeiten Groß sein, und doch auf kleine Dinge achten: Gar oft ist Kleines wie ein Teil der Größe.

Art does not have its foundation solely within itself; Nor is it what a depraved mind invents. He who wants to give us sweetness or greatness Must also think on the meaning of life. The Art of Gardening Artificial gardens should not exist; Let the plants live as they wish. Consider the wilderness: there is nothing more beautiful Before the creative Face of God.

Seid dankbar: Menschsein ist das größte Glück — Ist nicht der Mensch das Tor zum Himmelreich? Ihr habt die höchste Wahrheit, das Gebet — Und Gottes Gnade macht euch Engeln gleich.
