Ferdinand von Schirach

“Die Würde des Menschen ist die strahlende Idee der Aufklärung, sie kann den Hass und die Dummheit lösen, sie ist lebensfreundlich, weil sie von unserer Endlichkeit weiß, und erst durch sie werden wir in einem tiefen und wahren Sinn zu Menschen.”
Ferdinand von Schirach, Kaffee und Zigaretten

“Ich dachte, ein neues Leben wäre leichter, aber es wurde nie leichter. Es ist ganz gleich, ob wir Apotheker oder Tischler oder Schriftsteller sind. Die Regeln sind immer ein wenig anders, aber die Fremdheit bleibt und die Einsamkeit und alles andere auch.”
Ferdinand von Schirach, Strafe
