Ob es besser wird, wenn es anders wird, wei ich nicht.
Dass es anders werden muss, wenn es besser werden soll, ist gewiss.
I cannot say whether things will get better if we change;
what I can say is we must change if they are to get better.
Every improvement is a change, but not every change is an improvement.
(Georg Christoph Lichtenberg)

為之於未有, 治之於未亂。
Wi zhī y wi yǒu, zh zhī y wi lun
Act upon it before it has happened; order it before it is disordered.
(老子 道德經 Lǎozĭ Dodjīng)
