Its thinking and feeling changed.

I hope one may say without being accused of bias that
it is easier for the victor than for the vanquished to advocate peace.
- Gustav Stresemann

I must begin by saying something about the old Germany.
That Germany, too, suffered from superficial judgment,
because appearances and reality were not always kept apart in people's minds.

They frequently overlook the most serious loss that Germany suffered.
- Gustav Stresemann

History uses a unit of measure for time that is different

in the old Germany, would have become officers or civil servants.
- Gustav Stresemann

Just as the British subject loves England despite her faults,
so we must insist that all Germans who were part of
the old Germany and helped shape her,
recognize the greatness and worthiness of present-day Germany.
- Gustav Stresemann

But just as haste and restlessness are typical of our present-day life,

This applies to change in the relationships between
nations as it does to change within an individual nation.

A Shakespeare could have arisen only on English soil.
In the same way, your great dramatists and poets express
the nature and essence of the Norwegian people,

As a confirmed individualist I certainly do not wish
to underrate the influence of the individual,

rather,
in the individual is vested the capacity to lead the masses.
- Gustav Stresemann

as a successful alternative to socialism.
- Gustav Stresemann

Nothing in the reporting of a nation's history could
so mislead the younger generation as to represent great
events in such a way that they appear to have happened as a matter of course.

"Fair" is not a useful concept.
Life is not "fair."
You can't make life "fair."
You can get angry.
You can complain about life not being "fair."
You can attempt revenge - perhaps violently.
You can inflict great suffering upon yourself
in the name of life being "unfair."
And Life is still not "fair."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The River of Life has no judgments.
The River flows with no concept of good and bad - right and wrong.
The fields and dreams of men may be nourished by the River of Life,
or flooded and covered with silt, and the River just flows.
Men may catch fish and live on the River of Life,
or they may founder in a storm and drown, and the River just flows.
The River of Life is timeless.
It is not unchanging, but it is timeless,
and it changes in its own time.
The River of Life knows no obstacles.
The River can cut through solid rock - in its own time.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal
