                                                                                      Alles Vergångliche
                                                                                      Ist nur ein Gleichnis;
                                                                                      Das Unzulångliche,
                                                                                      Hier wird's Ereignis;
                                                                                      Das Unbeschreibliche,
                                                                                      Hier ist's getan;
                                                                                      Das Ewig-Weibliche
                                                                                      Zieht uns hinan.

                                                                                                            ~ Goethe, Faust, Finis
