These two people have taught me my humanitarian values, my ethics, I am, who I am, because of the Love, support and inspiration of my parents .... for sure !

Max Nöje: Could you mention any words, proverbs och thoughts, reflections that you like?
Nina Hagen: O.K. let me quote master Jesus Christ and master Bertolt Brecht:

LOVE NEVER FAiLS ! LOVE ONE ANOTHER ! in Petrus 1.- 5,14 : the word of God tells us : Grüßet einander mit dem Kuß der Liebe. Not only because of (~menschliche Zuneigung), sondern ~göttliche Liebe), das ist dann also ein Kuss der Liebe aus 1Kor 13,5, von der es u.a. in 1Kor 13,5 heisst : "sie benimmt sich nicht unanständig, sie sucht nicht das Ihre (die Liebe hört niemals auf ... LOVE NEVER FAiLS )".

And: Bertolt Brecht
Bitten der Kinder
Die Häuser sollen nicht brennen.
Bomber sollt man nicht kennen.
Die Nacht soll für den Schlaf sein.
Leben soll keine Straf sein.
Die Mütter sollen nicht weinen.
Keiner soll müssen töten einen.
Alle sollen was bauen.
Da kann man allen trauen.
Die Jungen sollen's erreichen.
Die Alten desgleichen.
