    Any time I have to struggle through an annoying-to-read text,
    I just think of the following, and my burden is lighter:

        May world in its worlding be the nearest of all nearing
        that nears, as it brings the truth of Being near to man's
        essence, and so gives man to belong to the disclosing
        brining-to-pass that is a brining into its own.

    Now I gather that German can be a real bitch to translate into
    English, and since I can't do it, I probably shouldn't poke fun

    ...but I do anyways. WTF *is* that!?! :)
