Der Astronaut sagte: "Ich war schon oft draußen im Weltall und ich habe noch kein einziges Mal Engel oder Gott gesehen.' Und der Gehirnchirurg entgegnete: "Und ich habe schon so viele kluge Gehirne operiert, aber einen Gedanken habe ich noch kein einziges Mal gesehen."

The astronaut said, 'I've been out in space many times but I've never seen God or angels.' And the brain surgeon said: 'And I've operated on many clever brains but I've never seen a single thought.'

Once a little boy passed by a sculptor who was chiselling away at a huge block of marble. Being curious the boy asked the sculptor what he was doing. The sculptor responded: ˜You wait and see.'The next day the boy was eager to see what had come out of the block. But the sculptor was still chiselling. The boy returned the next day and the next day. Still seeing nothing, the sculptor wanted him to wait and see. Then finally one day the boy approached the place where the sculptor used to work on the marble. Now all he could see was a beautifully carved horse. He turned to the sculptor in astonishment and asked:

‘How did you know that it was in there?’
