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

Don't be afraid. The dead cannot hurt you. They give you no pain, except that of seeing your own death in their faces. And one can face that, I find.
