Reflections by Johann Friedrich Von Schiller

When I hate I rob myself of something;
but when I love I become richer by the object I love.

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

A noble heart will always capitulate to reason.

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

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

Everyone is like a moon, and has a dark
side which he never shows to anybody.

It is easy to give advice from a port of safety.

It is not flesh and blood,but heart which makes us fathers and sons.

The voice of the majority is no proof of justice.

On the mountains there is freedom! The world is perfect everywhere, save where man comes with his torment.

Man, one may say, was never in such a completely animal condition; but he has, on the other hand, never escaped from it.

The dignity of mankind is in your hands; protect it!
It sinks with you! With you it will ascend.

Man only plays when he is in the fullest sense of the word
a human being, and he is only fully a human being when he plays.
