Bio: Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller was a German poet, philosopher, historian, and playwright.

They frequently discussed issues concerning aesthetics, and Schiller encouraged Goethe to finish works he left as sketches.

Quote of the day

Out of our quarrels with others we make rhetoric. Out of our quarrels with ourselves we make poetry.
