Three coins in a fountain
Each one seeking happiness
Thrown by three hopeful lovers
Which one will the fountain bless

Three hearts in a fountain
Each heart longing for its home
There they lie in the fountain
Somewhere in the heart of Rome

Which one will the fountain bless
Which one will the fountain bless

Three coins in a fountain
Through the ripples how they shine
Just one wish will be granted
One heart will wear a Valentine

Make it mine, make it mine, make it mine

daher die Redewendung "Eulen nach Athen tragen"?
9 years ago.
Demetrius Chryssikos has replied to Thueringer
„Eulen nach Athen tragen“ (γλαῦκας εἰς Ἀθῆνας κομίζειν, γλαῦκ' Ἀθῆναζε ἡγείσθαι) steht für eine überflüssige Tätigkeit. Sie geht auf den antiken griechischen Dichter Aristophanes zurück, der den Ausspruch in seiner satirischen Komödie „Die Vögel“ vor 2400 Jahren prägte. Dort wird in Vers 301 eine herbeifliegende Eule mit den folgenden Worten kommentiert:
"Wer hat die Eule nach Athen gebracht?"

The Owl of Minerva / Athens ( La Strigo de Minerva, in Esperanto) has been my avatar, for years, in several philosophy forums and blogs, in the web. It's the "Cyberowl" or "Cyberstrigo". :-)

A few examples:
