Friedrich Schiller

10 November 1759 – 9 May 1805 / Marbach, Württemberg

Beauteous Individuality

Thou in truth shouldst be one, yet not with the whole shouldst thou be so.
'Tis through the reason thou'rt one,--art so with it through the heart.
Voice of the whole is thy reason, but thou thine own heart must be ever;
If in thy heart reason dwells evermore, happy art thou.
