here are some of my favorite quotes by Friedrich von Schiller ...

"The will of man is his happiness."

"The world is ruled only by consideration of advantages."

"The voice of the majority is no proof of justice."

"Mankind is made great or little by its own will."

"Lose not yourself in a far off time, seize the moment that is thine."

"It is difficult to discriminate the voice of truth from amid the clamor raised by heated partisans."

"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."

"I am better than my reputation."

"He who considers too much will perform little."

"Every true genius is bound to be naive."

... just to list a few.
