For the new year.- I still live, I still think. I still have to live, for I still have to think.
‘Sum, ergo cogito: cogito, ergo sum!’
Today everybody permits himself the expression of his wish and his dearest thought; hence, I to, shall say what it is that I wish for myself today, and what was the first thought to run across my heart this year- what thought shall be for me the reason, warranty, and sweetness of my life henceforth.
I want to learn more and more, to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful.
Let that be my love henceforth!
I do not want to wage war against what is ugly. I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Looking away shall be my only negation. And all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a yes- sayer.
I am, therefor I think: I think therefor I am.
Love of fate.
