Meckern Sie nicht! Don't be so fussy!

"Insgesamt spiegelt die Auswahl den Stand der Dinge wider", räumte die Berliner Zeitung ein, und das Berliner Kulturmagazin Tip, das "über die Nominierungen nicht wirklich meckern" kann, stellte fest: "die bisherige 12köpfige Fachjury [die bisher die Preisträger kürte; Anm. d. Red.] hätte auch nicht viel anders entschieden." [G] "All in all the selection reflects the state of affairs", the Berliner Zeitung newspaper admitted and the Berlin culture magazine Tip conceded that "you can't really grumble about the nominations" and emphasised the fact that "the former professional jury of twelve members [Editor's note: which until 2005 had awarded prizes to the winners] would not have decided much differently".

"Machen statt meckern", so lautet das Motto, dass meine Reportagen verbindet. [G] "Do it, don't moan about it": that's the thread running through all the stories in my book.

The example sentences [G] were kindly provided by the Goethe Institute.
