Hans Christian Andersen

»Nach Europa!« rufen die jungen Söhne Amerika’s – »nach dem Lande der Väter, dem herrlichen Lande der Denkmäler und der Phantasie, nach Europa!«
Hans Christian Andersen

Edmund Burke

But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is extinguished forever.
Edmund Burke

Marlene Diertrich

In Europe, it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman – we make love with anyone we find attractive. Marlene Diertrich

The peoples of Europe are a work in progress

The peoples of Europe are a work in progress and always must be… The history of the people of Europe has not ended – it never will. Ethnogenesis is a process of the present and future as much as it is the past. No efforts of romantics, politicians, or social scientists can preserve once and for all some essential soul of a people or nation. Nor can any effort ensure that nations, ethnic groups, and communities of today will not vanish utterly in the future. The past may have set the parameters within which one can build the future, but it cannot determine what that future must be. Patrick J. Geary

T.S. Eliot

The historical sense compels a man to write not merely with his own generation in his bones, but with a feeling that the whole of the literature of Europe from Homer and within it the whole of the literature of his own country has a simultaneous existence and composes a simultaneous order. T.S. Eliot

Paris Hilton

Ich war letzten Sommer in Europa, da spricht niemand Englisch. Da ist alles französisch. Paris Hilton

George Soros

China sträubt sich, Verantwortung für die Welt zu übernehmen, Deutschland sträubt sich, Verantwortung für Europa zu übernehmen. George Soros

Les hommes européens

Impossible de concevoir une Europe sans Européens. […] Les institutions communautaires ont fait des betteraves, du beurre, des fromages, des vins, des veaux, voire des cochons européens. Elles n’ont pas fait d’hommes européens. Ces hommes européens existaient au Moyen Âge, à la Renaissance, au siècle des Lumières et, même, au XIXe siècle. Il faut les refaire. Louise Weiss

Lars von Trier

You will now listen to my voice. My voice will help you and guide you still deeper into Europa Lars von Trier
