IMMORTALITY

Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller 
(10 November 1759 – 9 May 1805)
was a German poet, 
philosopher, 
historian
and 
playwright.
During the last seventeen years of his life
(1788–1805),
Schiller struck up a productive, if complicated, friendship with already famous and influential 
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
They frequently discussed issues concerning aesthetics,
and Schiller encouraged Goethe to finish works he left as sketches. This relationship and these discussions led to a period now referred to as 
Weimar Classicism.

IMMORTALITY

You are frightened of death?
You wish you could live forever?
Make your life whole!
When death takes you that will remain.
