Stefan Zweig Quotes (82 quotes)
“In history as in human life, regret does not bring back a lost moment and a thousand years will not recover something lost in a single hour.”
Decisive Moments in History [German: Sternstunden der Menschheit] (1927)
“Never can the innate power of a work be hidden or locked away. A work of art can be forgotten by time; it can be forbidden and rejected but the elemental will always prevail over the ephemeral.”
In German: "Aber nie lässt sich die eingeborene Kraft eines Werkes auf die Dauer verbergen oder verschließen. Ein Kunstwerk kann vergessen werden von der Zeit, es kann verboten werden und versargt, immer aber erzwingt sich das Elementare den Sieg über das Ephemere" - Decisive Moments in History [Sternstunden der Menschheit] (1927)

Quote of the day
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
