Big words for
the little town
(Große Worte für die kleine Stadt)

"First of all, I ate the pumpkin mash and threw away the jar. And then I had nothing more in possession. There was nothing I would have to do and nothing I would only do out of habit, because everything was quite new. This singular mood lasted until the evening. I was so filled with myself and my freedom that dusk brought no anxiety to me. Singing my own song, composed exclusively of grand words (I do not remember them, regrettably), I ventured forth into the falling night."

Tove Jansson "Moominpappa's Memoirs" (quotation based on the Polish translation by Teresa Chłopowska)
