Oswald Spengler - Final Years

Final Years

Spengler spent his final years in Munich, listening to Beethoven, reading Molière and Shakespeare, buying several thousand books, and collecting ancient Turkish, Persian and Hindu weapons. He made occasional trips to the Harz mountains, and to Italy. Shortly before his death, in a letter to a friend, he remarked that "the German Reich in ten years will probably no longer exist". He died of a heart attack on May 8, 1936 in Munich, three weeks before his 56th birthday and exactly nine years before the fall of the Third Reich.

Famous quotes containing the words years and/or final:

    Mee of these
    Nor skilld nor studious, higher Argument
    Remaines, sufficient of it self to raise
    That name, unless an age too late, or cold
    Climat, or Years damp my intended wing
    Deprest, and much they may, if all be mine,
    Not Hers who brings it nightly to my Ear.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Again and again, faith in a possible satisfaction of the human race breaks through at the very moments of most zealous discord because humankind will never be able to live and work without this consoling delusion of its ascent into morality, without this dream of final and ultimate accord.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)
