       To my son Vasko, on the occasion of his the twenty-fifth anniversary

         Vase,
    All life, you must run far form the clan of the lazy and pompous fools, for who haven't got the laws.
    You feel free, only when something of your existence, escape from others.
    Let the humility, keeps your pride. You try, your point of support for every yours beginning to be possibly on a low level, to climb up the slope on one breath.
    You must remember, that, your friends, who shine of the benevolence to you, always will try to harm you but actually they will help you to a perfection.
    You must avoid the excess of the hopes. You don't be the king of your intentions and never don't change in slave on their realization.
    Look seriously on your future.
    Don't imagine it artistic.

         Vasko,
    Remember these father's words. If you ask somebody, who knows the decision on the specific problem, but become a foolish for five minutes, but if you don't know it - you risk to become a foolish for five minutes, but if you don't ask of a pride, you risk to be left foolish for all life.

       A mon fils Vasko, à l’occasion de son 25-ème anniversaire.

         Vasse,

    Cours loin et sans cesse de la clique des bêtes présomptueux qui ne respecte aucune loi.
        Tu ne peux te sentir libre qu’au cas où quelque chose de ton être échappe aux autres.
        Que la modestie nourrisse ta dignité. Fais attention à ce que ton point d’appui de tout ce que tu entames soit au pied de la montagne. Comme ça tu pourras monter la pente d’une haleine.
        N’oublis pas que tes amis, pleins de bienveillance, essayeront toujours de te faire mal, sans se rendre compte que de cette manière ils te mèneront vers la perfection.
        Fuis des espérances inutiles! Ne maîtrise pas tes intentions et ne deviens jamais esclave de leur réalisation.
        Dirige ton regarde sérieux sur le futur. Ne crée pas d’illusions artistiques.

         Vasko,
        Que les mots suivants de ton papa restent dans ta mémoire pour toujours: « Si tu demandes à quelqu’un qui connais la solution d’un problème que tu ne peux pas résoudre, tu risque de devenir sot pour cinq minutes. Mais si ta fierté t’empêche de ne pas lui demander, tu risques de devenir sot pour toute la vie. »

    le 23 décembre 2007                    PAPA
