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

The Art of Peace is not easy. It is a fight to the finish, the slaying of evil desires and all falsehood within. On occasion the Voice of Peace resounds like thunder, jolting human beings out of their stupor.
