    Das unermüdliche Streben nach einer unerreichbaren Perfektion, auch wenn es nur aus dem Klopfen eines alten Klaviers besteht, gibt allein unserem Leben auf diesem nicht verfügbaren Stern einen Sinn.

    la poursuite infatigable d'une perfection inatteignable, même si elle ne consiste en rien d'autre que le martèlement d'un vieux piano, est à elle seule ce qui donne sens à notre vie sur cette star sans succès.

    het onvermoeibare streven naar een onbereikbare perfectie, ook al bestaat het alleen uit het beuken van een oude piano, is wat alleen betekenis geeft aan ons leven op deze niet-aflatende ster.
