Stefan Zweig

Austrian writer
The greater part of our best years has been passed for our generation in these two great worldconvulsions. All will be changed after this war, which spends in one month more than nations earned before in yearsthere is no more security in our time than in those of the Reformation or the fall of Rome.More Stefan Zweig quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the way of youth that each fresh piece of knowledge of life should go to its head, and that once uplifted by an emotion it can never have enough of it.More Stefan Zweig quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In some mysterious way, once one has gained an insight into human nature, that insight grows from day to day, and he to whom it has given to experience vicariously even one single form of earthly suffering acquires, by reason of this tragic lesson, an understanding of all its forms, even those most foreign to him, and apparently abnormal.More Stefan Zweig quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Only ambition is fired by the coincidences of success and easy accomplishment but nothing is quite as splendidly uplifting to the heart as the defeat of a human being who battles against the invincible superiority of fate. This is always the most grandiose of all tragedies, one sometimes created by a dramatist but created thousands of times by life.More Stefan Zweig quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The idea of Jewish unity, of a plan, an organization, unfortunately exists only in the brains of Hitler and Streicher.More Stefan Zweig quotes [07/06/2011 08:07:47]
