German Word

Famous quotes containing the words german and/or word:

    Reduced to a miserable mass level, the level of a Hitler, German Romanticism broke out into hysterical barbarism.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)

    He began therefore to invest the fortress of my heart by a circumvallation of distant bows and respectful looks; he then entrenched his forces in the deep caution of never uttering an unguarded word or syllable. His designs being yet covered, he played off from several quarters a large battery of compliments. But here he found a repulse from the enemy by an absolute rejection of such fulsome praise, and this forced him back again close into his former trenches.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)
