„The romantic [Dutch] movement under the leadership of the geniuses Nuyen [c. 1830] also attracted me to follow. And in spite of the fact that in this way people lost their color and embellishment and often degenerating into chic, later on, a more sensible search arose for enlivening of coloration, heightening effect and strengthening the relief.“

—  Johannes Bosboom Dutch painter 1817 - 1891
version in original Dutch (citaat van Johannes Bosboom, in Nederlands): De romantische beweging onder aanvoering van den genialen trok ook mij aan tot volgen. En al verviel men langs dien weg in gekleurdheid en opgesmuktheid, vaak ontaardend in chic; er ontsproot daaruit later een meer verstandig zoeken naar verlevendiging van coloriet, verhooging van effect, vermeerdering van reliëf. Quote from Bosboom's small autobiography, 1891; as cited in De Hollandsche Schilderkunst in de Negentiende Eeuw, G. H.

„Maybe I'm worn out, but it could be that I never truly believed in what I believed.“

—  Imre Kertész Hungarian writer 1929
Context: The régime was overthrown, and I'm not going to pretend it was me who overthrew it. A general liquidation is in full swing, and I'm not going to join in. I've become a spectator. And I'm not even spectating from the front rows in the stalls but from somewhere up in the gods. Maybe I'm worn out, but it could be that I never truly believed in what I believed. That would be the unseemlier alternative, because then they would have smashed my ear in for no reason at all. That is the assumption I'm inclining to these days. (He breaks off and ponders, book in hand.) I did time for no reason, dragged the millstone of a police record around for no reason, was on probation for years for no reason, and I'm no hero, I merely botched up my life.

„From its inception, the fascist arrangement has attempted to create the illusion of a mass society in which the traditional capitalist ruling class would continue to play its leading role.“
