Thought for the Day

Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.

-Friedrich von Schiller
German dramatist & poet (1759 - 1805)

Freude, schöner Götterfunken--Beethoven had the goods on Schiller. This post made me smile because the words to the last movement of Beethoven's 9th symphony are the only German words I know, but I know them well and true, and I sing them loud all the time. Mostly at home, but at work too, during the mayonnaise-based holidays. You know, the Holy day, December 16.
