    The party out of office becomes the articulate one.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Only that which points the human spirit beyond its own limitations into what is universally human gives the individual strength superior to his own. Only in suprahuman demands which can hardly be fulfilled do human beings and peoples feel their true and sacred measure.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)
