Blue House of Quotes



Written on the outside walls of this lovely wine restaurant: 

“Enjoy a woman and a glass of wine

without any misgivin’.

But if your’re not a drinker nor a kisser,

Your life just ain’t worth livin’. “

Anyone who enjoys quotes would love visiting  Lake Constance, Germany.

You’l find quotes ( that you’ve never heard of before), everywhere: on houses, street signs, park benches, hidden in restaurant gardens, engraved on store fronts, printed in menus … even on sewage canal covers. I picked just a few for you to see… and of course translated them for you.

Every smartphone has a translator ab, so you can still enjoy — no matter what language you speak.
Don’t need a boat… if I can read a quote! 🙂

The Blue House


“There are many more old wine drinkers than old doctors.”


You want to talk about me and my family? First go back home, and tell me what you see. Only if you find there is nothing wrong at all Then go ahead, gossip … go tell ‘em all.”


Marriage is like going to a restaurant. You always think you have made the best choice, till you see what your neighbor got.


If you don’t do something for your health every day, then one day you will be sacrificing a lot of time for your health.


At an entrance to a cafe’ with delicious pastry. …. The more you weigh, the harder it is to kidnap you! Protect yourself! Eat cake!

That’s all for today folks! Let me know if you enjoyed yourselves.

  1. Is this mostly confined to Lake Constance? Or are the quotes common throughout Germany?

  2. Love the photos, and the quotes. And that sparkling expanse of water. I wish we lived closer to Lake Constance.

  4. You’ll see quotes written on traditional Bavarian homes, but I’ve never seen as many quotes as I’ve seen at Lake Constance.

  8. Haha… I like that quote too. And I think it’s true. Hi back to you Iva. It’s freezing here. Herbert and I have been comparing who has the coldest hands. … but it warms up in the afternoon… unfortunately late afternoon.
