Einfach traumhaft!

The tale of the fish and the turtle


Once upon a time, the fish meets his old friend, the turtle, who has been to earth.

Fish asks the Turtle several questions about earth. But each question reflects Fish's

knowledge of the sea rather than Turtle's experience with earth. Finally, Fish got mad.


'I've asked you many questions about earth, and all you can answer is no.

As far as I am concerned, that earth of yours does not exist.'

And with a disdainful flash of his colourful tail, he swam proudly away.


Turtle sighed. 'How can one know something new when one's questions are based

on the prejudices of the old?'
