    Hi Leos,

    Please help! I don't understand the logic of the "mit der Welt umzugehen vermag" at all in this sentence...
    Any comments to aid my understanding of what's going on here greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    Coming back to this sentence, I'm now having a problem with the 'die es stetig verbessert' - what is being improved here? The village is improving the world or the village is improving the way it handles the world, or something else entirely?

    Thaaank you!!

    FWIW, This is opine's take:

    This stands as a symbol of how the town/village is very capable of dealing with a world which is constantly trying to better it.

    @Looloobelle, What is the context? It's tricky.
