I ordered my horse to be brought from the stables. The servant did not
understand my orders. So I went to the stables myself, saddled my horse,
and mounted. In the distance I heard the sound of a trumpet, and I asked
the servant what it meant. He knew nothing and had heard nothing. At the
gate he stopped me and asked: "Where is the master going?" "I don't know,"
I said, "just out of here, just out of here. Out of here, nothing else, it's
the only way I can reach my goal." "So you know your goal?" he asked. "Yes,"
I replied, "I've just told you. Out of here--that's my goal."
