Austrian writer
It is better to pay tribute of gold to the enemy than tribute of blood in war.More Stefan Zweig quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are two types of compassion. One - is faint-hearted and sentimental. Actually, it is nothing more than impatience of the heart, that is hurrying to get rid of that hard feeling when you see other peoples' sufferings; this is not a compassion, but just an instinct will to defence yourself from misfortunes of others. But there is another compassion - real one, that demands for actions, not sentiments, it knows what it wants, and it is full of determination to do everything, what is in human power and even beyond itMore Stefan Zweig quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

In 1938, after Austria, our universe had become accustomed to inhumanity, to lawlessness, and brutality as never in centuries before. In a former day the occurrences in unhappy Vienna alone would have been sufficient to cause international proscription, but in 1938 the world conscience was silent or merely muttered surlily before it forgot and forgave.More Stefan Zweig quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In history, the moments during which reason and reconciliation prevail are short and fleeting.More Stefan Zweig quotes [07/06/2011 08:07:36]
