Isn't that a question? Where is the question mark?
I agree: this should be a question both in English and in German.
My sentiments exactly. This is a question. The punctuation is incorrect. When I translated this as a statement I was charged with an error.
Also, why is it framed as "one" instead of "you"? Even somehow knowing this is a question, isn't "Does one ever know where one is going" a much more accurate translation?
