the truth is the truth

again from unseen academicals of Sir Terry Pratchett:
Nutt: „Why did you tell me not to open the book?“
Ladyship: „Because I wanted you to read it! You had to find out the truth for yourself. That is how we all find the truth.“
Nutt: „And if the truth is terrible?“
Ladyship: „I think you know the answer to that one.“
Nutt: „The answer is that, terrible or not, it is still the truth!“
Ladyship: „…and then?“
Nutt: „And then the truth can be changed.“

Truth is female

from unseen academicals by my favorite author Sir Terry Pratchett

Truth is female, since truth is beauty rather than handsomeness; this would certainly explain the saying that a lie could run around the world before Truth has got its, correction, her boots on, since she would have to choose which pair – the idea that any woman in a position to choose would have just one pair of boots being beyond rational belief. Indeed, as a goddess she would have lots of shoes, and thus many choices.

Ich sprach…

Schon einmal was von Robert Gernhardt gehört? Ich auch nicht – bis in SWR 3 ein Gedicht von ihm kam, das ich unbedingt posten muss:

Ich sprach nachts: Es werde Licht!
Aber heller wurd‘ es nicht.
Ich sprach: Wasser werde Wein!
Doch das Wasser ließ dies sein.
Ich sprach: Lahmer, du kannst geh’n!
Doch er blieb auf Krücken stehn.
Da ward auch dem Dümmsten klar,
daß ich nicht der Heiland war.
