Important Taglines:
We rocked on the waves
We sat on the cloud and dangled our legs
We stood in the air
Did you learn to swim, back when you were alive?
He's a pedant
Why did you laugh - ?
He whistled - he did so rarely
We always talk about down there!
What time... We sat on the golden evening cloud
The middle field
He is gone
He was ashamed beyond measure
We sat on the cloud and dangled our legs [2].
Come to the water sanatorium?
He was still laughing
What a laugh we had!
We sat on the cloud and dangled something
Do you know the delight of erotic ugliness?
We had invented something new

Kurt Tucholsky was born on January 9, 1890, in Berlin, and studied law in Berlin and Geneva before receiving his doctorate at Jena in 1915. He worked for the 'Schaub├╝hne' and then the 'Weltb├╝hne' from 1913, and was briefly its editor after Siegfried Jacobsohn's death. Kurt Tucholsky lived in Sweden from 1929 until his death on December 21, 1935, in Hindas. Tucholsky was a pessimistic enlightener and one of the most important and sharp-tongued social critics and satirists of the Weimar Republic, a clear-sighted and often entertaining critic who pursued the goal of a democratic and humane society and early on warned of the dangers of anti-democratic violence.
