A merely fallen enemy may rise again, but the reconciled one is truly vanquished.
Friedrich Schiller (1759 - 1805)

With stupidity the gods themselves struggle in vain.
Great souls suffer in silence.
One can advise comfortably from a safe port.
Truth exists for the wise, beauty for the feeling heart.
He who considers too much will perform little.
It hinders the creative work of the mind if the intellect examines too closely the ideas as they pour in.
It is criminal to steal a purse, daring to steal a fortune, a mark of greatness to steal a crown. The blame diminishes as the guilt increases.
As freely as the firmament embraces the world, or the sun pours forth impartially his beams, so mercy must encircle both friend and foe.
Opposition inflames the enthusiast, never converts him.
