Famous quotes containing the word europe:

    ...I think the Americans are the only people who have good beds. I consider the American bedroom unparalleled for freshness, comfort, and cleanliness. It is worth going all over Europe in order to come home to one’s own bed.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)

    In Europe the object is to make the most of their land, labour being abundant: here it is to make the most of our labour, land being abundant.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Well then! Wagner was a revolutionary—he fled the Germans.... As an artist one has no home in Europe outside Paris: the délicatesse in all five artistic senses that is presupposed by Wagner’s art, the fingers for nuances, the psychological morbidity are found only in Paris. Nowhere else is this passion in questions of form to be found, this seriousness in mise en scène—which is Parisian seriousness par excellence.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
