Goethe (歌德) and Don Quixote (d) got into a discussion about ethics (德) and the moral (德) implications of wearing black sneakers (彳) just inside the entrance of the Erechtheion (e2) which escalated pretty quickly.

He doesn't want to make a mess though so he collects the blood flowing out of the other end of the flute in a shallow bowl (皿). - Mnemonic by Matthias, 12 months ago | add a painting
