Die prima Weldstadt.

Ich bin ein Berliner.
Quote
30. November 1989
USA- Wall Street Journal "If Berlin Is Unified, Could Europe Stand So Much Schnauze?"

"For Berliners, everything must always be faster, higher, prettier," says Joerg Schlegel, the deputy director of West Berlin's Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Like a good Berliner, he illustrates with a joke: A Berliner and a Bavarian are arguing about who has it best. The Bavarian effusively describes the majestic Alps and asks the Berliner if there is anything like them in Berlin. "No," says the Berliner, "we don't have any mountains. But if we did, they would certainly be higher than yours."

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Foosball und biergarten!

I was actually in Berlin for the 2006 World Cup, and had quite a lovely time. No tickets to the games, but the microbreweries were a great experience.

Well, the lady on the left is smiling. That's suspicious. She could be Austrian.

I much prefer the Austrian goodbye. Smiley
