Thank you for transforming days

Although I had to leave earlier it was with many new inspirations that transformed and thus enriched my knowledge. The Bernese Winter School was a wonderful experience of the ex-change and the trans-lation of ideas and thoughts and concepts. In this context I would like to cite Jean Paul (1796):

“Fremde Idee sind die Insekten, die den Samenstaub von einem guten Gedanken in uns zu anderen tragen und dadurch befruchten.”

“Foreign ideas are the insects that transport the seeds of a good thought in ourselves to others thus fecundating them.” (my transl.)

Looking forward to continue with this exciting exchange!
