Fish that climb trees

Fish that climb trees

Happiness? Success? Big goals? What is it that counts in life?

“What would I want to say to my children today if I no longer had the opportunity to do so tomorrow?” asks bestselling author Sebastian Fitzek one day – and decides to confront existential issues. In exciting personal episodes, he tells us what is important in life and how a happy life can succeed.

Fish Climbing Trees is the very personal legacy of a father to his young children – and a book for anyone who is looking for support and wants to reassure themselves of the values that are important to them.

“Einstein once said:

Everyone is a genius! But if you judge a fish by whether it can climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.

And I’ll add: conversely, don’t let others stop you from climbing a tree just because they think you’re a fish. Don’t listen to those who tell you: ‘You can’t do that, you can’t!’ Be fish that want to climb trees.”
