Illustration of the day / Ilustracija dana

Don't be overly proud! Your thoughts are not yours alone!
They live in others
We have all crossed the same paths in the darkness,
we have all wandered equally in the sign
of searching and all are equally admired.
With everyone you share something and many of you are the same.
And rememeber it has been so since the ancient times
And we all repeat ourselves, even the great and the pure ones,
like children that still don't know their names.*

Tin Ujević, excerpt from a poem Brotherhood of Faces in the Universe  *my translation


Ne gordi se! Tvoje misli nisu samo tvoje!
One u drugima žive
Mi smo svi prešli iste putove u mraku,
mi smo svi jednako lutali u znaku
traženja, i svima jednako se dive.
Sa svakim nešto dijeliš, i više vas ste isti.
I pamti da je tako od prastarih vremena.
I svi se ponavljamo, i veliki i čisti,
kao djeca što ne znaju još ni svojih imena.
