Famous quotes containing the words stefan zweig and/or zweig:

    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)

    But often the presence of mind and energy of a person remote from the spotlight decide the course of history for centuries to come.
