Dangerous times

A new drawing in what I have come to think of as the “Wenn der Meister regiert” series. The German text reads: “Erfolg ist so gefährlich wie Misserfolg. / Hoffnung ist so nichtig wie Angst.” (In English: “Success is as dangerous as failure. / Hope is as hollow as fear.”)

Postscript: For the record, I just want to point out that I published this post before anyone knew about Merkel’s skiing accident. The title seems oddly prophetic in retrospect. I wish the chancellor a “gute Besserung,” naturally.
