Famous quotes containing the word europe:
“Well then! Wagner was a revolutionaryhe 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 Wagners 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 scènewhich is Parisian seriousness par excellence.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
