Heinrich Heine

Heinrich Heine

German poet
Tell me who first did kisses suggest?
It was a mouth all glowing and blest;
It kissed and it thought of nothing beside.
The fair month of May was then in its pride,
The flowers were all from the earth fast springing,
The sun was laughing, the birds were singing.More Heinrich Heine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am no longer a divine biped. I am no longer the freest German after Goethe, as Ruge named me in healthier days. I am no longer the great hero No. 2, who was compared with the grape-crowned Dionysius, whilst my colleague No. 1 enjoyed the title of a Grand Ducal Weimarian Jupiter. I am no longer a joyous, somewhat corpulent Hellenist, laughing cheerfully down upon the melancholy Nazarenes. I am now a poor fatally-ill Jew, an emaciated picture of woe, an unhappy man.More Heinrich Heine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The spring's already at the gate With looks my care beguiling; The country round appeareth straight A flower-garden smiling.More Heinrich Heine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I will not say that women have no character; rather, they have a new one every day.More Heinrich Heine quotes [08/14/2011 04:08:25]
