-  "The little bit of earth" from "Dos dorfs meydel" ("The country girl".) "You think you will live forever, and so you strive to accumulate material things. But, everything is given up at the end for a little bit of earth, the grave. Remember throughout your life, that what truly remains yours are honest and charitable deeds, and a good name."
