“Daß du mein Grab besuchst, ist nicht wichtig. Ich weiß, daß du an mich denkst – das ist wichtiger.”
Otfried Preußler, Krabat

“Es gibt eine Art von Zauberei, die man mühsam erlernen muß: Das ist die, wie sie im Koraktor steht, Zeichen für Zeichen und Formel um Formel.

“Denn Dummheit und Glück ja mit vorliebe Hand in Hand gingen.”
Otfried Preußler, Krabat
