o Daniel Grolle, Tai Chi Spielen:



o We depend on nature not only for our physical survival. We also need nature to show us the way home, the way out of the prison of our own minds. We got lost in doing, thinking, remembering, anticipating – lost in a maze of complexity and a world of problems.


o When I am silent, I fall into the place where everything is melody.

                          (Molana Dschalal ad Din Muhammad Rumi)


 o We have forgotten,what rocks, plants and animals still now. We have forgotten how to be – to be still, to be ourselves, to be where life is: Here and Now.(Ekkart Tolle)



 o The plant that you have in your home – have you ever truly looked at it? Have you allowed that familiar yet mysterious being we call plant to teach you its secrets? Have you noticed how deeply peaceful it is? How it is surrounded by a field of stillness? The moment you become aware of a plants emanation of stillness and peace, that plant becomes your teacher. (Ekkart Tolle)



o Besteige die Berge und empfange ihre guten Neuigkeiten. Der Frieden der Natur wird in dich hineinfließen, wie der Sonnenschein in Bäume hineinfließt. Die Winde werden ihre Frische in dich hineinwehen, die Stürme ihre Energie, während deine Sorgen wie Blätter im Herbst von dir abfallen werden. (John Muir)




 o Jeder braucht Schönheit genauso wie Brot, Orte zum Spielen und Beten, wo die Natur heilt und Körper und Geist stärkt.

                                                                                                                                                               (John Muir)




 o Zwischen zwei Kiefern findet sich ein Weg in eine neue Welt.

(John Muir)




 o Wenn man Kunst macht, muss man etwas zu sagen haben – und es auch sagen können.  (Joseph Beuys).




 o People ask me how to do art.

The problem is, I don´t know how to do art . . .

(Lawrence Weiner)




 oI went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.” Henry David Thoreau
