Ich bin ganz deiner Meinung - sagte die Herzogin - und die Moral davon ist:
‘Scheine, was du bist, und sei, was du scheinst’
- oder einfacher ausgedrückt:
‘Sei niemals ununterschieden von dem, als was du jenem in dem, was du wärst oder hättest sein können,
dadurch erscheinen könntest,
daß du unterschieden von dem wärst, was jenen so erscheinen könnte, als seiest du anders!’

- Lewis Carroll – Alice im Wunderland

"What are you doing?" you ask.
"Can't you see?" comes the impatient reply. "I'm sawing down this tree."
"You look exhausted!"
you exclaim. "How long have you been at it?"
"Over five hours,"
he returns, "and I'm beat! This is hard work."
"Well why don't you take a break for a few minutes and sharpen that saw?"
you inquire. "I'm sure it would go a lot faster."
"I don't have time to sharpen the saw,"
the man says emphatically. "I'm too busy sawing!"
