Friedrich Schiller

Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (10 November 1759 – 9 May 1805) was a German poet, philosopher, physician, historian, and playwright. During the last seventeen years of his life (1788–1805), Schiller struck up a productive, if complicated, friendship with the already famous and influential Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Disappointments are to the soul what a thunderstorm is to the air.

Against stupidity the very gods themselves contend in vain.

Freedom can occur only through education.

Not without a shudder may the human hand reach into the mysterious urn of destiny.

A merely fallen enemy may rise again, but the reconciled one is truly vanquished.

It hinders the creative work of the mind if the intellect examines too closely the ideas as they pour in.

The key to education is the experience of beauty.

With stupidity the gods themselves struggle in vain.

All things must, man is the only creature that wills.

They would need to be already wise in order to love wisdom.

Every true genius is bound to be naive.

Live with your century, but do not be its creature.

The will of man is his happiness.

Art is the daughter of freedom.

A gloomy guest fits not a wedding feast.

There is room in the smallest cottage for a happy loving pair.

The voice of the majority is no proof of justice.

Be noble minded! Our own heart and not other men's opinions of us forms our true honor.

To save all we must risk all.

To gain a crown by fighting is great to reject it divine.
