Today, at eighty-three years of age, I am the happiest person I know. I find life indescribably wonderful. It is undoubtedly also terrible, and I have experienced painfully sad deaths among my close relations and friends.

But despite everything, although I was desperate more than once and still today have grave worries, although for me it has been up one minute and down the next, I am happy. I will not spend much longer on myself.
