Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake.

Agarrar com unhas e dentes.
Agathe (5.2.), unsere Gottesbraut, die macht, dass Schnee und Eis wegtaut.

Sie erwiderte: 'Altwerden ist wohl selbst schon ein Schicksal!' und war sehr unzufrieden mit dieser Antwort, in der sich ihre jugendliche Schwermut auf eine Weise ausdrückte, die ihr nichtssagend vorkam.
