Gedicht (englisch)

With mind and spirit healed,

true justice can be won for all;

a chance for peace that will endure,

once humans cast out vicious hate.

Then freedom reigns, unspoiled

by haughty flags and national

intrigues, unchained from all

beguiling dogmas that enslave.

(c) Dietmar Rothe, 2004/5

This poem, ‹No Eye Equal to Wisdom,› was inspired by the wise teachings of Jmmanuel (Jesus) as retold in the Talmud of Jmmanuel (TJ26:27,28):

«There is no eye equal to wisdom, no darkness equal to ignorance, no power equal to the power of the spirit, and no terror equal to the poverty of consciousness. There is no higher happiness than wisdom, no better friend than knowledge, and no other savior than the power of the spirit.»

The poem was further influenced by quotes from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832):

«Noble let a person be, compassionate and good.»

and from Friedrich Schiller's (1759-1805) verse:

«A higher conquest's won by him

who swings the lightning bolt of truth

to free the human spirit-mind…»
