FRIEDRICH
The guest with terror turned away.
"I cannot here, then, longer stay, -
My friend thou canst no longer be!
The gods have willed that thou shouldst die
Lest I, too, perish, I must fly" -
He spoke, - and sailed thence hastily.
Friedrich Schiller · The Ring of Polycrates · 1797, · translation anonymous 1902

BOYS DON'T CRY
Even if this is about three token guys, there should not even be a hint of suspicion this might be in fact a gender-based project: Vicente in Lisbon, Casanova in Italy and Schiller in Germany: ravens played with one, the next had countless adventures and the third is still subjected to awards being given out in his name. But shouldn't all of them have already been liberated from being prejudged and devalued by history?

FRIEDRICH
Er stand auf seines Daches Zinnen,
Er schaute mit vergnügten Sinnen
Auf das beherrschte Samos hin.
"Dies alles ist mir unterthänig,"
Begann er zu Ägyptens König,
"Gestehe, daß ich glücklich bin."
Friedrich Schiller · Der Ring des PolyKrates · 1797
