"First there is the stone, then the tree, and then, eventually, comes humanity. It goes exactly the same way in reverse. I'll be the next to go. Then the trees we planted in the garden, the cherry and nut trees. And eventually the stone will also cease to be. Crumble. Turn to earth."
Karl Prantl, as quoted by Andrea Schurian, DERSTANDARD, 09/10/2010
