Schlagwort: Wahl

[Each] of us are given a limited number of days to make a difference. Life is a choice to live for something, or to die for nothing.

Language isn’t a formal system. Language is glorious chaos.

Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity […]. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.

M. Night Shyamalan, After Earth, 2013

Wählt uns, sonst regieren die Anderen, sagen sie. Sie wollen an die Regierung und wir wollen keine. Verdammte Wahlen!
