Heinrich Heine — German Poet born on December 13, 1797, died on February 17, 1856

Christian Johann Heinrich Heine was a German poet, journalist, essayist, and literary critic. He is best known outside Germany for his early lyric poetry, which was set to music in the form of Lieder by composers such as Robert Schumann and Franz Schubert. Heine's later verse and prose are distinguished by their satirical wit and irony. He is considered part of the Young Germany movement. His radical political views led to many of his works being banned by German authorities. Heine spent the last 25 years of his life as an expatriate in Paris... (wikipedia)

Sleep is good, death is better; but of course, the best thing would to have never been born at all.
Wherever they burn books they will also, in the end, burn human beings.
Like a great poet, Nature knows how to produce the greatest effects with the most limited means.
I have never seen an ass who talked like a human being, but I have met many human beings who talked like asses.
