Schiller ‘Ruhe’ (Humate Remix) – Ruhe is German for quiet.

The spoken words of the ‘Rhue’ are  the poem “Über die Einsamkeit” which was written by Swiss philosophical writer Johann Georg Zimmermann (1728-1795). The poem is in German: Ruhe, das höchste Glück auf Erden, kommt sehr oft nur durch Einsamkeit in das Herz.

This translates into English as: “Peacefulness, the greatest happiness on earth, comes very often only through solitude into the heart.”

In this track the poem is spoken by German actor and voice actor Benjamin Völz.
