Christian Morgenstern

Christian Morgenstern

was a German author and poet from Munich
In every man there is a hidden child which is called the urge to create and he prefers as play things and serious things not the miniature ships, recreated in the minutest detail, but the walnutshell with a bird feather as mast and sail and a pebble as the captain. He also wants to be able to participate and to co-create in art, rather than being simply an admiring viewer. For this "child in man" is the immortal creator within him.More Christian Morgenstern quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Often I am struck in amazement about a word: I suddenly realize that the complete arbitrariness of our language is but a part of the arbitrariness of our own world in general.More Christian Morgenstern quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To me, the term 'middle-class' connotes a safe, comfortable, middle-of-the road policy. Above all, our language is 'middle-class' in the middle of our road. To drive it to one side or the other or even off the road, is the noblest task of the future.More Christian Morgenstern quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
