“Sie kaufte ihm ein Brötchen, für sich selbst einen Cappuccino im Pappbecher, und schob die Kinderkarre Richtung Fischerspark, reihte sich ein in den Treck der Ottensenser Vollwert-Mütter, die jeden Tag aus ihren Altbauwohnungen strömten, um ihren Nachwuchs zu lüften, die Einkäufe aus dem Bio-Supermarkt im Netz des Testsieger-Buggys, den Kaffeebecher in der Hand und im Fußsack aus reiner Schafwolle ein kleines Kind, das irgendetwas Durchgespeicheltes aus Vollkorn in der Hand hielt.”
Dörte Hansen, This House Is Mine

“Fathers built houses like these for their sons, and the sons took care of them and preserved them for their sons, and a son didn't ask himself whether he wanted it. When had the wanting begun? When had the fault crept in? When had the misunderstanding arisen that farmers' sons were allowed to choose a life for themselves? Simply select one that was nice and colorful and comfortable? Go to Japan and cook fish, move to Hannover to sit in an office. And Georg, who was a farmer, the best of the three, had simply left it all behind and looked for a farm someplace else, because his old man didn't suit him. As if at any time in the past a father had ever suited his son!”
