Famous quotes containing the words german and/or empire:

    The German intellect wants the French sprightliness, the fine practical understanding of the English, and the American adventure; but it has a certain probity, which never rests in a superficial performance, but asks steadily, To what end? A German public asks for a controlling sincerity.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Without the Empire we should be tossed like a cork in the cross current of world politics. It is at once our sword and our shield.
    William Morris Hughes (1864–1952)
