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

You will never succeed while smarting under the drudgery of your occupation, if you are constantly haunted with the idea that you could succeed better in something else.
