Belgrade, good morning

Duško Radović had a good morning show on Belgrade radio, waking up the inhabitants of ex-Yugoslav capital with his wit for years. Here is just a taste, translated by Manja Maksimovič on the spot. Yes, from my scrapbook.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blessed be all those who know what they want, who have desires and ideas.

Just like every day they will fill today with something, no matter how little, modest, barely visible.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happiness is little, ordinary and far from striking, and there are many who are not able to see it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Do not burp in front of the underprivileged.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are people so clinically vain that they never leave tracks, only good impressions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is Tuesday, a little day, outsider, nobody’s time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Spring is coming. Lucky all to whom this matters.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goodness cannot be returned since it is never given.

Good people are good for their own sake, not for others’.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nothing can disappear. Everything is here somewhere.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The rain has been dripping, coming down in buckets, drizzling, pouring, the only thing it hasn’t done yet is stop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The rain fell on the grain for a reason and on us for no reason at all. It’s been ages since we stopped bearing fruit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are memories to the left of us and desires to the right. We are somewhere in the middle, equally far from both of them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Even us who will never die must keep saying that everyone will die, out of respect for those who will die.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
