Quote of the day

Ich will dir mein Herze schenken,
senke dich, mein Heil, hinein.
Ich will mich in dir versenken;
ist dir gleich die Welt zu klein,
ei, so sollst du mir allein
mehr als Welt und Himmel sein.

I will give my heart to you;
lose yourself in it, my Salvation.
I will lose myself in you;
though earth be all too small for you,
ah, for me you alone shall be
more than earth and heaven.

— Picander (Christian Friedrich Henrici), from Bach's "St. Matthew Passion"
