�Wer rennt u. w�hlt, mit Geld nur klingt
und stehend nur sein� Schoppen trinkt
den treff des Wortes Vollgewicht
Ruh� ist die erste B�rgerpflicht.�

(He who runs and agitates, with coins only clinking
and drinks his pint standing up,
may the full meaning of the saying hit him:
Tranquility is every citizen�s first duty.)
�Dem Gl�cklichen schl�gt keine Stunde.� (recessed base only)
(Time does not strike for the fortunate.)

The central image on this stein, as well as the bottom band on recessed base versions, are taken taken from illustrations by Heinrich Schlitt (1849-1923), part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II.
