Famous quotes containing the words history and/or german:

    There is nothing truer than myth: history, in its attempt to “realize” myth, distorts it, stops halfway; when history claims to have “succeeded” this is nothing but humbug and mystification. Everything we dream is “realizable.” Reality does not have to be: it is simply what it is.
    Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)

    Some of us prefer Austrian voices risen in song to ugly German threats.
    Ernest Lehman (b. 1920)
