Friedrich von Schiller

Here you will find the Poem Different Destinies of poet Friedrich von Schiller

Different Destinies

Millions busily toil, that the human race may continue;
 But by only a few is propagated our kind.
Thousands of seeds by the autumn are scattered, yet fruit is engendered
 Only by few, for the most back to the element go.
But if one only can blossom, that one is able to scatter
 Even a bright living world, filled with creations eterne.
