Devil's Stone - Lambrecht (Palatinate)


Hiker, you ask about the meaning of evil in the world and why a stone was erected for the devil himself above the Devil's Rock with its danger of falling? Because evil is, good can prove itself. Because frost hardens and congeals, warmth can soothe and do good. In the darkness, the light shines and awakens the dead to life. But you, wanderer, recognise evil as the touchstone of your freedom, on the way to good.

What do you accuse, the evil world and this and that? Are you a man who never blew spelt into fire? Has hate and harm and madness and addiction never seduced thee, that blindly thy arm of the hammer has fanned flight still more? What think'st thou thyself indivisible of that which feedeth the world's fire? First break the passion that still festers thee. Take all strife into thyself, care not for the world; the purer thou art from dross, the purer it will be with.

(Christian Morgenstern, *06.05.1871 in Munich, died on 31.09.1914 in Meran)
