"Das Volk hat das Vertrauen der Regierung verscherzt. Wäre es da nicht doch einfacher, die Regierung löste das Volk auf und wählte ein anderes?" Berthold Brecht

"Ist dies schon Wahnsinn, so hat es doch Methode" - William Shakespeare

"Wenn man der Wahrheit nahe kommen will, muss man das Unmöglichste denken"

"Wir suchen überall das Unbedingte, und
finden immer nur Dinge" - Novalis

"Die rastlose Selbstzerstörung der Aufklärung zwingt das Denken dazu, sich auch die letzte Arglosigkeit gegenüber den Gewohnheiten und Richtungen des Zeitgeistes zu verbieten" - Theodor W. Adorno

"Das lebhafteste Vergnügen, das ein vernünftiger Mensch in der Welt haben kann, ist, neue Wahrheiten zu entdecken; das nächste nach diesem ist, alle Vorurteile loszuwerden." Friedrich der Große
König von Preußen
1712-1786

Heinrich von Kleist hat seiner Braut Wilhelmine von Zenge die Sache mit einem treffenden Vergleich klar gemacht:

„Wenn alle Menschen statt der Augen grüne Gläser hätten, so würden sie urteilen müssen, die Gegenstände, welche sie dadurch erblicken, sind grün – und nie würden sie entscheiden können, ob ihr Auge ihnen die Dinge zeigt, wie sie sind, oder ob es nicht etwas zu ihnen hinzutut, was nicht ihnen, sondern dem Auge gehört. So ist es mit dem Verstande. Wir können nicht entscheiden, ob das, was wir Wahrheit nennen, wahrhaft Wahrheit ist, oder ob es uns nur so scheint. Ist das letzte, so ist die Wahrheit, die wir hier sammeln, nach dem Tode nicht mehr – und alles Bestreben, ein Eigentum sich zu erwerben, das uns auch in das Grab folgt, ist vergeblich.“---

"If you want to get close to the truth, you have to think the worst possible"---

"If this is crazy, then it has method" - William Shakespeare--- "We seek the unconditioned everywhere, and always find things" - Novalis

"The restless self-destruction of the Enlightenment compels thinking to forbid even the last innocence against the habits and tendencies of the Zeitgeist" - Theodor W. Adorno

The most vivid pleasure that a rational man in the world can have is to discover new truths; the next one after that is to get rid of all prejudices.
Frederick the Great
King of Prussia
1712-1786

"The people have lost the trust of the government. Wouldn't it be easier if the government dissolved the people and chose another one?" - Berthold Brecht

Heinrich von Kleist made it clear to his bride Wilhelmine von Zenge with an apt comparison:

“If everyone had green glasses instead of eyes, they would have to judge that the objects they see through them are green - and they would never be able to decide whether their eyes show them the way they are or whether they are not adding something to them that does not belong to them but to the eye. So it is with the mind. We cannot decide whether what we call Truth is Truth or whether it only seems so to us. If the last is, the truth that we collect here is no longer after death - and all efforts to acquire property that also follows us into the grave are in vain. "
„Die rastlose Selbstzerstörung der Aufklärung zwingt das Denken dazu, sich auch die letzte Arglosigkeit gegenüber den Gewohnheiten und Richtungen des Zeitgeistes zu verbieten.“

Sorry I haven't written in so long as you probably already know I had a pretty rough couple of days. I can't write much now as I am typing on a french key pad as well as trying to stay seated in a bouncy fishing boat. [more on Abbys Blog]

Abby's Blog: Abby is Fine! - Abby Sunderland wohlauf!


We have just heard from the Australian Search and Rescue. The plane arrived on the scene moments ago. Wild Eyes is upright but her rigging is down. The weather conditions are abating. Radio communication was made and Abby reports that she is fine!We don't know much else right now. The French fishing vessel that was diverted to her location will be there in a little over 24 hours. Where they will take her or how long it will take we don't know. 
More updates as news comes in.

Abby Sunderland SOS ? Abby's Blog

We spoke with Abby early this morning and learned that she had had a very rough day with winds up to 60 knots and seas 20-25 feet. She had been knocked down several times but was handling things well. The wind had subsided to around 35 knots which she and Wild Eyes are quite comfortable with. We were helping her troubleshoot her engine that she was trying to start to charge her systems. Satellite phone reception was patchy. She was able to get the water out of the engine and start her up. We were waiting to hear back from her when American Search & Rescue authorities called to report having received a signal from her emergency beacon (EPIRB). We initially thought that the signal was sent automatically from her water-activated EPIRB and that it had been activated during one of her knockdowns. As we pulled the paperwork from her EPIRB registration, we learned that the signal had come from her manually activated EPIRB.
