You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Laß uns mutvoll hoffen,
Bis das Ziel erreicht.
Laß uns kraftvoll ringen
Bis der Kummer weicht.
Noth und Mühe schrecken
Tapfre nicht zurück:
Den, der kühn gerungen,
Lohnt das höchste Glück.

Was quälst du mich, o Mißgeschick!
Will der Gedanke mich nicht fliehen?
Ich sauge Lust aus ihrem Blick.
Hinweg! Ach, mächtig fühl'ich's glühen!

In tiefbewegter Brust
regt sich ein leises Sehnen,
kaum meiner selbst bewußt,
darf ich dies Glück nicht wähnen.

O schweig, betrognes Herz!
Verstummt, vergebne Klagen!
Dem Manne ziemt nicht Schmerz,
er muß mit Fassung tragen.
