There is nothing good unless you do it
Es gibt nichts Gutes außer: Man tut es.
Translated: There is nothing good unless you do it.
I had the pleasure to be part of a weeding ceremony of close friends on the last weekend. The master of ceremonies cited a poem by one of the most popular German authors, Erich Kästner.
This poem consists of only that one sentence and summarizes the whole philosophy of moral in a few words.
From now on I will read it every day.
