Halfway along Our Life’s Path

– Очень хорошо, когда человек, земную жизнь пройдя до половины, умеет водить автобус, говорить, к примеру, на датском и чешском языках, фотографировать, просыпаться в тот момент, когда сочтет нужным, накладывать грим, взламывать замки и печь пироги…

Макс Фрай, Ключ из жёлтого металла

Translation (by yours truly):

“It’s really good when, halfway along our life’s path, one can drive a bus, speak, for instance, Danish and Czech languages, photograph, wake up when one considers it necessary to do so, apply stage makeup, pick locks, and bake pies…”

– Max Frei, The Key of Yellow Metal


To those of you who have seen the post in one of the previous incarnations: first of all, thank you for stopping by!  Next, I decided to publish quotes as a weekly feature, and then there was some reshuffling of which old quote will appear when.  This may be stable now. 🐻
