are the capacity of always choosing at each instant in constantly changing situations the least harmful the most useful politics is the art of the possible the attainable the art of the next best politics ruins the character fools learn from experience I prefer to learn from the experience of others when you want to fool the world tell the truth preventative war is like committing suicide out of the fear of death laws are like sausages it's better not to see them being made It Is the destiny of the weak to be devoured by the strong fools say that they learn by experience I prefer to profit by others experience man cannot control the current of events he can only float with them and steer we live in a wondrous time in which the strong is weak because of his Scruples and the weak grows strong because of his audacity politics is the art of the possible the science of the relative politics is not an exact science a conquering Army on the border will not be stopped by eloquence

two souls in his breast but I Harbor a whole crowd of them and they quarrel it's like being in a republic crowned heads wealth and privilege May well tremble should ever again the black and red Unite hounds follow those who feed them the great question of the day will not be settled by the means of speeches and majority decisions but by Iron and blood the main thing is to make history not to write it the statesman's task is to hear God's footsteps marching through history and to try and catch on to his coattails as he marches past if there ever is another war in Europe it will come out of some damn silly thing in the Balkans an appeal to fear never finds an echo in German hearts the Balkans aren't worth the life of a single pomegranian Grenadier government is cancerous in the head and limbs only its bellius sound and the laws it excretes are for the most straightforward in the world life is like being at the dentist you always think that the worst is still to come and yet it's over already in order to retain a certain respect for sausages and laws one must not see them being made that which is imposing here on Earth has always something of the quality of the Fallen Angel who is beautiful but without peace great in his conceptions and exertions but without success proud and lonely woe to the leader whose arguments at the end of a war are not as plausible as they were at the beginning that which is imposing here on Earth has always something of the quality of the Fallen Angel who is beautiful but without peace great in his conceptions and exertions but without success proud and lonely if this political business teaches you one thing it is that you can be as wise as the wise men of this world and yet you always wander into the next minute like a child into the dark
