“For a long time he watched her. When she was lost to sight, he was almost a little moved. But that's life, thought death.”
Wolf Erlbruch, Ente, Tod und Tulpe

“Ibland kunde döden läsa tankar.
– När du är död är också dammen borta – åtminstone för dig.
– Är du alldeles säker på det, frågade Anden förvånat.
– Så säker som på någonting annat, sa Döden.
– Det är bra. Då behöver jag inte sörja över den när...
– ...du är död, sa Döden.”
Wolf Erlbruch, Duck, Death and the Tulip

“Lange schaute er ihr nach.
Als er sie aus den Augen verlor, war der Tod fast ein wenig betrübt.
Aber so war das Leben.”
Wolf Erlbruch, Duck, Death and the Tulip
