Majestas Populi

Majestas Populi

Majesty of the nature of man! In crowds shall I seek thee?
‘Tis with only a few that thou hast made thine abode.
Only a few ever count; the rest are but blanks of no value,
And the prizes are hid ‘neath the vain stir that they make.



Poem Majestas Populi - Friedrich Von Schiller
