PARTICIPATION. Friedrich Schiller


   E’en by the hand of the wicked can truth be working with vigor;
    But the vessel is filled by what is beauteous alone.

        To -

 Tell me all that thou knowest, and I will thankfully hear it! 
  But wouldst thou give me thyself,-let me, my friend, be excused!

        To -

 Wouldst thou teach me the truth?  Don’t take the trouble!  I wish not,
  Through thee, the thing to observe,-but to see thee through the thing.

        To -

   Thee would I choose as my teacher and friend.  Thy living example
    Teaches me,-thy teaching word wakens my heart unto life.
