Translation

(French, German)



French
Tous les changements, même les plus souhaités ont leur mélancolie, car ce que nous quittons, c'est une partie de nous-mêmes ; il faut mourir à une vie pour entrer dans une autre.

German
Alle Veränderungen, sogar die meistersehnten, haben ihre Melancholie. Denn was wir hinter uns lassen, ist ein Teil unserer selbst. Wir müssen einem Leben Lebewohl sagen, bevor wir in ein anderes eintreten können.
