So fest wie die Hand den Stein hält.

nur um ihn desto weiter zu verwerfen.
Aber auch in jene Weite führt der Weg.

Si fort que la main tient la pierre

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Si fort que la main tient la pierre.
Elle la tient si fort
seulement pour l'envoyer aussi loin qu'elle peut.
Mais même à cette distance elle montre le chemin.
