“ولأن الإنسان منذ طفولته يرى والدَيْه في صورة الأقوياء القادرين على مواجهة مصاعب الحياة، فإن رؤية الضعف الذي يستنزفهما بالتدريج تكون أصعب من رؤية ذلك يحدث للآخرين”
Arno Geiger, Der alte König in seinem Exil

“أكبر هَمٍّ يمكن للكِبَرأن يصيبنا به هو أن يطول أمده أكثر مما نحتمل”
Arno Geiger, Der alte König in seinem Exil

“Ich spürte, dass sich etwas in mir selbstständig gemacht hatte. Für meinen Geschmack machte sich dieses Etwas ein wenig zu oft selbstständig. Ich hätte gern mehr Gewalt über meine Gefühle gehabt.”
Arno Geiger, Selbstporträt mit Flusspferd
