There are so many things some old man should tell one about while one is little; for when one has grown up, knowing them would be a matter of course. - Rainer Maria Rilke Quotes

There are so many things some old man should tell one about while one is little; for when one has grown up, knowing them would be a matter of course.[Es gibt so viele Dinge, von denen ein alter Mann einem erzählen müßte, solange man klein ist; denn wenn man erwachsen ist, wäre es selbstverständlich, sie zu kennen.]
