Inscription(s)

Friedrich
Schiller

Nichtswürdig ist die
Nation, die nicht ihr Alles
freudig setzt an ihre Ehre

An's Vaterland, ans teure
schliess dich an das halte
fest mit deinem ganzen
Herzen

Den Menschen macht
sein Wille gross und
klein

Friedrich
Schiller

Worth nothing is the
nation, which will not its all
stake joyfully upon its honor

(from: The Virgin of Orleans).

Join forces with the fatherland
we cherish and hold it fast.
Herzen

(from: Wilhelm Tell).

Man is made great or little
by his own will
