GOTTFRIED AUGUSTUS BURGER
German poet
(1748 - 1794)

When the tongue of slander stings thee, let this be thy comfort,--they are not the worst fruits on which the wasps alight.
      - [Slander]

The dead ride swiftly.
  [Ger., Die Todtem reiten schnell.]
      - Leonore [Death]

Song of the brave, how thrills thy tone
  As when the Organ's music rolls;
    No gold rewards, but song alone,
      The deeds of great and noble souls.
        [Ger., Hoch klingt das Lied vom braven Mann,
          Wie Orgelton und Glockenklang;
            Wer hohes Muths sich ruhmen kann
              Den lohnt nicht Gold, den lohnt Gesang.]
      - Lied von Braven Mann [Bravery]
