from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yes, has God forgotten everything I did for him?

The Battle of Ramillies was one of the most significant battles in the War of the Spanish Succession . During this battle in 1706 the French were defeated by English and Dutch troops led by the Duke of Marlborough . This victory led to the withdrawal of the French from the Spanish Netherlands and the capture of Bruges, Antwerp and Ghent. After this defeat, King Louis XIV said these reproachful words in French:

Dieu a donc oublié tout ce que j'ai fait pour lui? "

Is it already Christmas today?

This is an advertising slogan that the former soccer player Franz Beckenbauer used to advertise the mobile communications company E-Plus on German television for three years .

The slogan literally entered common parlance for “big surprise”.

E-Plus had this slogan protected and, by means of an injunction, banned passages in a competing commercial in which Beckenbauer later advertised O 2 with Anke Engelke and Dieter Bohlen . In this spot, Bohlen Beckenbauer asks, “ Is it already Christmas today? " accept. To which Beckenbauer answers:

" I'd like to, but I'm not allowed to. "

Yes, there must be processes!

"Yes, there must be trials" is the opening line of the poem " The Trial " by Christian Fürchtegott Gellert , which describes how someone who insists too much on his rights almost loses his home and yard in the end:

Yes, there must be processes!
Assuming that they are not on earth,
how can then what is mine and yours that are
determined and decided?
Arguing is what nature teaches us.
So, brother, right, and just argue.
You see, they want to drown you;
But don't give in, put everything on,
And let the trade take its course;
Because right must remain right.

This quote is a comment on the tendency of certain people to litigate at every opportunity. Processes must be is also a title in Waris Dirie's collection of children of pain .

Say yes and amen

This idiom often has the extension to say yes and amen to everything and then means to agree to everything uncritically without showing your own opinion.

The formulation can be found at the very end of the Revelation of John , where it says in the German translation:

20 It speaks who testifies to this: Yes, I will come soon. Amen, yes come, Lord Jesus! 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. "

There is an anecdote about the former German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer , against whom a Bavarian negotiating partner was outraged during negotiations in the Federal Chancellery:

" Mia san ned herkomma, Mr. Chancellor, that mia simply say yes and amen to everything. "

Adenauer replied in his Cologne dialect:

" Well, I need to do that, gentlemen, I'll be happy if you say yes. "

According to another version, church dignitaries had a controversy with Adenauer. The head of the delegation says:

But we can't say yes to that. "

Adenauer replies:

“In my opinion the Church has neither yes nor no to say, only amen. "

Jädr nor a wondrous lock!

This request comes from the cult film Die Feuerzangenbowle , which is extremely popular at German universities and is an event every year at Christmas time. In Göttingen, 10,000 people take part in the Christmas parties in the lecture hall. You bring mulled wine and play the most beautiful scenes in the film.

The quote comes from the scene in which the teacher Schnauz gives his students in chemistry class “ a wzeny lock ” of blueberry wine from a test tube . The student Pfeiffer (with three  f ) incites his classmates to a prank. After this tasting, all the students suddenly show the symptoms of a heavy intoxication and babble around:

The fermentation of the allohol produces fermentation, the so-called alloholic fermentation, which is used to produce blueberry flakes or blueberry flakes. "

Then they go to sleep in the chemistry room, cry for their mommy and get so mad that the terrified director sends them all home.

Hunting scenes from Lower Bavaria

Hunting scenes from Lower Bavaria is the title of a play by Martin Sperr from 1966, in which a homosexual outsider and the violence in the village is the subject.

Dull provinciality and the persecution of a homosexual outsider who is falsely suspected of murder are portrayed. Sperr did not want to depict individual fates, but rather " the hunt down of people and the gathering together for such pleasure ". None of the characters questioned the values ​​of the village world depicted, least of all the outsiders.

Hunter's Latin

This is real hunter's Latin, which means for hunters that the number and size of the hunted animals were exaggerated. Bismarck said:

"There are never as many lies as before the election, during the war and after the hunt."

The same applies to the exaggerations in angler's Latin or in Christian seafaring with sailor's yarn that was spun instead of the correct yarn made from old rope .

Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair (English Vanity Fair, or, a Novel without a Hero ) is the title of a social novel by English writer William Makepeace Thackeray from the year 1848th

The title took Thackeray from the devotional book The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come (dt. Pilgrimage to the blessed eternity ) of the Baptist preacher John Bunyan , which he had already published in 1678 when he was arrested for a disregarded preaching ban. (It was only in the last years of his life that Bunyan enjoyed respect rather than persecution as a leading Puritan clergyman.) There it is said of a city on the way that its name is Vanity (" vanity ") and that there is a " Vanity Fair " throughout the year. give. The journey of the main character Christian also takes him through places with symbolic names such as " Valley of the Shadow of Death ", " Fair of Vanities " and " Cheerful Mountains ".

Thackeray's focus in his novel is always directed to the satirical examination of typical social mechanisms and the characters' game for money, prestige, pleasure and love. The title of the novel is mostly quoted in the form of "Fair of Vanities" to denounce the self-referentiality and lack of factual orientation of political and cultural systems:

  • "Education Policy and Federalism - Vanity Fair"
  • "Berlin Republic - Fair of Vanities"
  • "Berlinale prelude: fair and vanities"

Yes / Yes! That comes from that!

" Yes, yes! That comes from that !! "

The jokingly deliberately grammatically incorrectly formulated triumphant statement comes from a picture story by Wilhelm Busch with the title " Diogenes and the bad boys of Corinth ".

In this story, two " bad boys " want to annoy the philosopher Diogenes von Sinope in his bin, but they get caught on a nail and are rolled flat by the bin.

In the end it says gleefully:

“But Diogenes the Wise crawled into the barrel
and said: 'Yes, yes! That comes from that !!

The more he has, the more he wants.

This quote comes from the poem Encounter by Johann Martin Miller , which became famous through the setting by Christian Gottlob Neefe , a teacher of Beethoven. It says there in the second stanza

Many a swim in abundance, have a
house and farm and money,
And yet they are always full of frustration
and the world is not happy.
The more he has, the more he wants,
His complaints are never silent.

The theologian Eberhard Busch says in his reflection on the 7th commandment ( You should not steal. )

" Even when you've had enough long ago, yes, it is precisely then that the urge that evokes particularly powerfully stirs in us, of which the song says: 'The more he has, the more he wants.' "

The more enjoyment you get from your work, the better it pays.

This insight comes from Mark Twain's satirical science fiction novel A Yankee at King Arthur's Court :

" The higher the pay in enjoyment the worker gets out of it, the higher shall be his pay in cash, also. "

To each his own

“To each his own” (Suum cuique) is passed down as a saying of the older Cato . Afterwards he should have said:

"Suum cuique per me uti atque frui licet."
("As far as it's up to me, everyone should be able to use and enjoy what they do.")

The idea goes back to Plato's Politeia . “Suum cuique tribuere” (to give each his own) is also a legal rule of Ulpian .

“To each his own” is a classic definition of justice . Today, it is the motto of the military police troops of the German army and was the motto of the order of from I. Friedrich founded Black Eagle .

The best known today is the perverted use in the National Socialist Buchenwald concentration camp . There you can read the German translation “Everybody his own” from the inside as the motto at the entrance gate.

Every animal has its own little toy.

This saying goes back to the title of a humorous collection of poems by the Saxon dialect poet Edwin Bormann , which was illustrated by Adolf Oberländer and the title of which was: Every little animal has its little toy. Zoological song garden . Oberländer was best known for his satirical depictions of human behavior, which were often carried out as anthropomorphic animal drawings.

That means that everyone has their quirks . Pläsier (here in the diminutive form Pläsierchen ) is derived from the French word plaisir (= pleasure ).

An article about the love life of sea creatures and a song by Thomas Lück, whose refrain goes as follows, is also headed with the words "Every little animal has its little bit".

Every little animal has its own little treat,
and if it doesn't bother anyone else,
then my dear,
sponge over it,
because tolerance is never wrong.

But there are also variations:

  • " Every little girl his little bit "
  • " Every animal has a toy "
  • Well, everyone has their own little treat. "

Everyone is a moon and has a dark side that they don't show anyone.

Image mosaic of the
back of the moon

The American writer Mark Twain wrote in Following the Equator , chapter LXVI.

" Every one is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody. "

Mark Twain builds on the astronomical knowledge that from the earth - due to the bound rotation  - only one side of the moon is visible. Conversely, a stationary observer on the moon would always see the earth in the same place. The earth never “ rises ” or “sets” outside of the libration zones on the moon. An observer on the back of the moon could never see the earth.

Every man for himself.

This proverbial saying comes from the play Andria (IV, 1) by the Roman comedy poet Terenz , where it says in the Latin original:

" Proximus sum egomet mihi. "
I am next to myself. "

An article on Jewish law states about this saying:

This sentence is said by people with different evaluations. One means him mockingly, the other understandingly, another even cynical. One of them means himself, the other refers to other people. Whatever your position on this saying, one thing is undisputed - it is human experience that lies in these words. "

The scholar Rawa concludes from this that no one presents himself as evil, and therefore no one can incriminate himself. It follows that incriminating oneself in court does not count as a confession unless the crime is confirmed by two witnesses.

Everyone is next to himself is an investigation of social support in Nazi concentration camps .

Every shopkeeper praises his goods.

This saying goes back to the first book of the letters of the Roman poet Horace and reads in Latin:

Laudation venales qui vult extrudere merces. "
Those who want to get rid of them as soon as possible praise their goods. "

This statement still applies today:

  • No salesperson tells the whole truth. Every shopkeeper praises his goods. "

But also modified: "Every mother praises her butter."

This rule also applies in other cultures, including China, where it says about grandma Wang's melons (王婆 Wang Po):

  • A common Chinese proverb says that Grandma Wang praises her own melons in particular. It therefore means that everyone always praises their own products in a very special way, or that every shopkeeper praises their goods. "

Every customer can get their car in any color they want, as long as that color is black.

This paradoxical statement is attributed to the American automaker Henry Ford , who is said to have said in English:

" Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black. "

However, there is no evidence that he ever uttered those words. Black was the standard color as it was the first industrially produced and long-lasting color. In addition, black dries the fastest. Another reason was that it is easier to use just one color in mass production. Not all Ford T's were black, but most of them were.

Everyone has their price.

This is an alleged statement made by British Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole who is said to have said:

All those men have their price. "
All of these people have their price. "

The quote collector Georg Büchmann writes in his Winged Words :

“The word attributed to Sir Robert Walpole (1676–1745)
Every person has his price was
not said of him in this harshness. In Coxe's Memoirs of the life and administration of Sir Robert Walpole (IV, p. 369), it is said of him: “He despised idle phrases. He attributed the utterances of alleged patriots to selfish intentions and said of them: 'All these people have their price'! ""

Immanuel Kant was of a completely different opinion:

“Everything has either a price or a dignity. What has a price, something else can be put in its place as an equivalent; what, on the other hand, is above all price and therefore does not provide an equivalent, that has a dignity. "

Everyone is an abyss.

This quote from Georg Büchner's drama Woyzeck shows the pessimistic worldview of this poet. Woyzeck himself says:

Everyone is an abyss; it makes you dizzy when you look down. "

The theater scholar Hellmuth Karasek writes in the newspaper Der Tagesspiegel under the heading Man as an abyss on the subject of torture :

In Georg Büchner's“ Danton ”it says about the crime: 'Everyone is an abyss'. Not only the common criminal is meant, but also every representative of the state in this revolutionary drama. Its restriction by the prohibition of torture applies without any restriction. "

Everyone is an artist.

Joseph Beuys : "Every person an artist - On the way to the freedom figure of the social organism", 1978

Shortly before his death, on November 20, 1985 , Joseph Beuys gave a keynote speech at the Münchner Kammerspiele with “Speaking about one's own country: Germany” . He once again addressed his theory that “every person is an artist” . Beuys said literally:

“Everyone is an artist. I'm not saying anything about the quality. I am only saying something about the possibility in principle that exists in every human being ... I explain the creative as the artistic, and that is my concept of art. "

Beuys was of the opinion that anyone wishing to study art should not be prevented from doing so by admission procedures such as a portfolio procedure or a numerus clausus . He informed his colleagues that he would accept all applicants for a university place who had been rejected by other teachers in his class.

Everyone wants to live long, but nobody wants to grow old.

This observation comes from Irish writer Jonathan Swift , who wrote the following in English:

Every man desires to live long; but no man would be old. "

In other words, this age paradox says that everyone has to get old, but nobody wants to be old.

The Munich doctor Harald Bresser writes about this quote in his anti-aging guide Jung-forever :

The pursuit of survival as long as possible is a fundamental instinct of every living being on our planet. Almost everyone is afraid of infirmity and helplessness in old age, but hardly anyone ends their life voluntarily unless severe physical or emotional pain force them to do so. "

Everyone should be saved according to his own style.

Collected quotations from Frederick the Great : "... everyone here has to become Selich according to his Faßon."

The remark " Everyone should be saved according to his own style " goes back to the Prussian King Friedrich II , who wrote the following in the margin of the submission when asked whether the Roman Catholic schools should be abolished again because of their unsuitability :

"The religions must all be Tolleriret and the Fiscal must closely keep an eye on the fact that none of the other denies that here everyone must become Selich according to his own style."

Or, more precisely, quoted from Friedrich's facsimile shown opposite:

The religions must
all be Tolleriret
and the fiscal
must have an eye on
that none of the other
breaks off Tuhe, because here
must become Selich according to his form

Perhaps Friedrich had read in the Mémoires des sages et royales Œconomies d'Estat, domestiques, politiques et militaires de Henry le Grand des Maximilien de Bethune , which had appeared in several volumes and various arrangements since 1634:

"Plût a Dieu [...] que vous fussiez si prudent que de laisser à chacun gagner Paradis comme il l'entend."

The quote is given in different forms today, including other French spelling as "Everyone should be blessed according to his or her own style".

Everyone dies alone.

This statement about human loneliness was the title of a novel by the writer Hans Fallada . In this novel, he tells the story of a working-class couple who wage a hopeless fight against the Nazi regime and are destroyed by it.

From a Gestapo file, Fallada had learned of the fate of the Berlin couple Otto and Elise Hampel , who dared to resist solitary and were executed in 1943. In his novel, Fallada names the two Otto and Anna Quangel. With self-authored and written anti-Nazi texts on postcards, which they systematically display in apartment buildings, they try to shake up other people without realizing that their protest will only be noticed by the state apparatus. Everyone else panics as soon as they get the cards in their hands, don't even finish reading them and try to get rid of them as soon as possible.

Otto Quangel desperately asks in prison:

Yes, and then our lives will be taken, and what use has our resistance then? "

His cell mate gives him the following answer:

Us - a lot, because we can feel like decent people until death. "

Everyone carries the marshal's baton in their knapsack.

Prussian Marshal's Staff

With these words Napoléon Bonaparte is said to have expressed that each of his soldiers can work their way up to the highest tasks and offices.

In the historical work La Vie Militaire sous l'Empire by Elzéar Blaze, published in 1837, Napoléon is quoted as follows:

Tout soldier français porte dans sa giberne le bâton de maréchal de France. "
Every French soldier carries the marshal's baton in his cartridge pouch. "

The marshal's baton is a staff worn by the marshal as an insignia of his dignity. In France, the marshals received the baton fleurdelisé from the 18th century , covered with blue velvet and covered with heraldic lilies. The gold-framed ends have the name and rank of the owner on one side and the Latin motto Terror belli - decus pacis (" Terror in war, adornment in peacetime ") on the other .

Every inch a king.

The saying comes from William Shakespeare's drama King Lear (IV, 6). In the landscape of the chalk cliffs near Dover , King Lear, who is driving towards madness, and the Count of Gloster, who has been blinded by glare, meet. To Gloster's question “Isn't it the King?” Lear replies with irony and bitterness:

"Ay, every inch a king."
"Yes, every inch a king."

Everyone sooner or later invents a story that they think is their life.

This quote comes from the novel My Name Be Gantenbein by the Swiss architect and writer Max Frisch . It says that identity is actually nothing other than the story that you tell yourself and others about yourself. A woman left the narrator. He then invents various stories that should show ways in which the failure of the relationship could have been prevented. As the title “Mein Name sei Gantenbein” suggests, the narrator slips into the roles of the male characters and changes the stories by trying them on like clothes.

Everyone complains about their memory, no one about their intellect.

The statement "Everyone complains about their memory, nobody about their intellect." Comes from the "maxims and reflections" of the French writer François de La Rochefoucaulds and reads in the original:

"Tout le monde se plaint de sa mémoire, et personne ne se plaint de son jugement."

La Rochefoucauld expresses the fact that it is fashionable to willingly admit weaknesses in memory, since they are more mechanical and should be viewed independently of intelligence. But nobody would admit weaknesses in their intelligence.

Every people has the government it deserves.

This bon mot comes from a letter from the French diplomat Count Joseph de Maistre , who was an opponent of the French Revolution and advocated restorative monarchism. In the French original it goes like this:

"Toute nation a le gouvernement qu'elle mérite."

In 1811 Maistre was the Sardinian envoy to the then Russian capital of Saint Petersburg .

Beyond Good and Evil

Beyond Good and Evil. The prelude to a philosophy of the future is the title of a work by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche , who tried to show that good and bad are only concepts created by humans that are relative and dependent on the defining basis. The following statement can be found in the text (JGB 153):

"What is done out of love always happens beyond good and evil."

Today the formula “to be beyond good and evil” is used colloquially to denote people, things or conditions that cannot be measured by normal standards and are outside the usual categories. In particular, phraseologism means states, people or things that can no longer be dealt with, that represent a hopeless case. A person's unworldliness can also be expressed in it.

The more praised a piece is crowned, the more it falls through.

This is attributed to the author and critic Oskar Blumenthal .

Now, Lord, you release your servant in peace.

" Now you dismiss, Lord, your servant " (old Greek: . Νῦν ἀπολύεις τὸν δοῦλόν σου, δέσποτα - Nyn apolyeis ton doulon sou, despota ) are the opening words of the "Canticle of Simeon", one of the three canticles of Luke .

The text comes from the story of the presentation of Jesus in the temple. The aged prophet Simeon recognizes him as the Messiah he has been waiting for, praises God for it and declares himself ready to die:

27 And he came into the temple by the suggestion of the Spirit. And when the parents brought the child Jesus into the temple to do for him as is customary according to the law, 28 he took him in his arms and praised God and said, 29 Lord, now you let your servant go in peace , as you said; 30 for my eyes have seen your Savior, 31 whom you prepared before all peoples, 32 a light to illuminate the Gentiles, and for the praise of your people Israel. "

After the initial Latin words "Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine" , the Nunc dimittis is prayed daily in the Catholic Church's hourly prayer. In Protestant church music, this text often served as the basis for funeral compositions.

In the song O Maria, think of the hour , the crucial scene is clothed in verse as follows:

When Simeon sees the child, he
is filled with the Holy Spirit, so
that he will bless and bless
the anointed of God.

Now grows together what belongs together.

" Now what belongs together is growing together " were the words Willy Brandt used to comment on the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 . In the midst of the ecstatic joy surrounding the opening of the Wall, Brandt recalled that after decades of German division there was still a long way to go to get back together.

The famous movement was composed later for the history books. According to a sound document from WDR , Brandt said on November 10, 1989 at the Berlin border crossing in Invalidenstrasse :

This is a nice confirmation of previous efforts, but also an invitation to all of us to do a lot more so that what belongs together is put together again. "

Decades earlier he had been the “3rd Anniversary of August 13 "on August 12, 1964 said something similar in Berlin:

Germany must be unified so that what belongs together can be brought together. This path must be struggled with, both large and small. "

But as early as August 11, 1958, Brandt, as governing mayor, had a say in an SFB report that was broadcast by the entire ARD, with a speech given on May 31, 1958. The occasion was the opening of a new subway section in Berlin. According to the abstract of the SFB archive, he expresses "the hope that one day what belongs together will be put together. '"

Now people are spitting on their hands again.

These words are part of the chorus of the song Gross National Product by Geier Sturzflug , which makes fun of belief in economic growth:

Yes, then
we will spit on our hands again, we will increase the gross national product,
yes, yes, yes, now we will spit on our hands again.

It refers to the phrase “spit in your hands” which, according to the dictionary, means “to go to work without hesitation and with verve”.

Jeunesse dorée

The French term Jeunesse dorée ( golden youth ) used to stand for the rich and indulgent youth of the big cities. The roots of the term can be found in the activities of reactionary young men of the French bourgeoisie who, after the execution of Robespierre (1794), appeared as opponents of the Jacobins. The battle song of the Jeunesse dorée, published by Jean Marie de Saint-Mars Souriguiere in 1795, "Revéil du peuple" (Awakening of the People) sung to a melody by Pierre Graveaux, almost reached the importance of the Marseillaise.

The quote collector Georg Büchmann writes in his Winged Words :

The male youth of Paris, who after the 9th Thermidor in 1794 raised themselves to the pioneers of the contrerevolution, is said to have nicknamed
Jeunesse dorée
Goldjugend (rich young people)
. Adolf Schmidt ("Parisian conditions during the Eevolutionszeit from 1789-1800", Jena 1874, T. I, No. 12: "Die Myth von der Jeunesse dorée") proves that the expression was only used once by the novelist Pagès in the second , Parts of his “Secret History of the French Revolution” appeared at the beginning of 1797 in the form: “The Parisian youth, which was also called la jeunesse dorée” was used without ever appearing any further until 1824, as it were at one stroke, the baptism of the Parisian youth of the revolutionary period as "Jeunesse dorée" by Mignet, Thiers, Thibaudeau and Prudhomme. Today we use it to refer to the luxuriant youth of the capitals.

Johann, the lively soap maker

This expression as a name for a carefree person comes from the poem Johannes, the soap boiler , in which a soap boiler has a neighbor buy the right to his happy singing. Soon he gives the money back and prefers to live poor, but continue singing. The song begins with the following verses:

Johann, the lively soap maker,
learned many beautiful songs,
and sang with an unconcerned mind,
From morning to evening,
His daily work could bring him food,
And when he ate, he had to sing;

The quote is the final line of this poem by Friedrich von Hagedorn , a fable poet and anacreontic poet :

Go on secretly envying me!
I do not trade with your friends.
Heaven loved me right, Who
gave me my voice again.
What I have been, I will become again:
Johann, the cheerful soap maker.

Today's youth

Today's Youth is the title of a comedy by the writer Otto Ernst , published in 1899 , whose own youth were marked by material hardship and a social-democratic, educational-hungry workforce.

The term youth of today was used as a term for young people, for young people, especially with regard to their behavior and appearance: the term youth itself is historically relatively young and was only used more frequently around 1800. The concept of adolescent was originally ambivalent (“ adolescence is drunkenness without wine ”) and also served to distance oneself from a group of people who were defined as endangered.

In this context, the Platonic Socrates is often quoted with the following words, which, however, cannot be proven:

“The youth of today love luxury, have bad manners, and despise authority. They contradict their parents, cross their legs and bully their teachers. "

When Aristotle says:

“I have absolutely no hope in the future of our country once our youth provide the men of tomorrow. Our youth are unbearable, irresponsible and horrific to look at. "

It sounds even worse on a 4,000-year-old cuneiform text from Ur :

“Our youth are shabby and indecent. Young people are not listening to their parents anymore. The end of the world is near."

One can counter this with a quote from Kurt Tucholsky , which relativizes the other statements:

"Different ages of people think of each other as different races: the elderly have usually forgotten that they were young or they forget that they are old, and the young never understand that they can get old."

Come back soon, boy!

Boy, come back soon is a hit that Freddy Quinn sang in 1962 and the chorus goes like this:

Boy, come back soon, soon back home.
Boy, don't you ever go out again

In 1967 the Swedish singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad covered the song under the Swedish title Peter, kom tillbaka (Peter, come back). The well-known refrain is often quoted:

  • "Elian: Boy, come back soon!" (The international dispute over the refugee boy Elian)
  • "Tongue twister - tongue come back soon."
  • "Mom, come back soon!" (Family drama)

Young wine in old bottles

Goat skin as a wine container based on a historical model

These words come from a parable in the Gospel of Matthew . There it says:

You don't put new wine into old bottles either; otherwise the skins will tear and the wine will spill and spoil the skins. "

As a wineskin elastic containers are designated where traded wine and from which wine is tapped. In ancient times and in the Middle Ages, wineskins were a common means of transport alongside amphorae and barrels .

This quotation from the Bible is still in use today - albeit with modifications:

  • " Magazine database - old wine in old bottles? "
  • Competence orientation - new wine in old bottles? "
