Famous quotes containing the words space and/or european:

    In the United States there is more space where nobody is is than where anybody is.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Of course, in the reality of history, the Machiavellian view which glorifies the principle of violence has been able to dominate. Not the compromising conciliatory politics of humaneness, not the Erasmian, but rather the politics of vested power which firmly exploits every opportunity, politics in the sense of the “Principe,” has determined the development of European history ever since.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)
